Winter in Britain (Roman-era historical short-in-progress)
by Tyrannohotep - December 17, 2016, 09:57:35 PM
Winter in Britain
This is a short historical fiction I'm pretty much winging at this point. The setting is Britain during the Roman era, and the story is simply about a Roman legionary whose patrol gets ambushed by vengeful natives in the woods. I'm aiming for two scenes, with a word count between 2,500 and 3,000, with this little project. Any feedback is welcome, but I would particularly appreciate critique on the writing of the action scene(s).

The Perfect Shot

Just added a new short story draft to the Worldsmyths library, which I noticed has been curiously silent all month.

The Perfect Shot
Sid Francis, a struggling freelance photographer, goes on safari in search of the perfect shot. Of course the local wildlife is less than fully cooperative...

Please put all your comments in a review on the story itself.

As of Yet: An Anthology
by briari hallow - October 04, 2016, 08:54:31 PM
As of Yet: An Anthology is a collection of the short pieces I've always been most proud of, and have remained rather proud of over the years.

I leave a lot of things unfinished, largely due to a fear of rejection. Because of this, I have decided to put together an anthology of works that I think best represents my various styles. The works span several years - some were written in high school, the most recent having been written just a few months ago. All have a fantastic element.
