Written Jan. 26, 2004. Growing up, I occasionally helped my brother with his creative writing assignments. They were always strange and quirky stories, and I enjoyed writing them. This is one I wrote for myself.
Written sometime in 2010. This was part of a writing exercise at college: “show a character imagining another character.” I don’t recall if this was graded or not.
My friend Bobby came over one afternoon with an idea for a short film. He imagined a princess, a dashing hero, a wizard, and a sorceress with a lackey to command. After a draft or two, we intended to film it ourselves over the summer. That didn’t happen, but as a result, Sir Reginald Rosy was born!
Written Sept. 11, 2004. This story was part of a challenge I created at The Turquoise Tavern. The thread read, “Write a Story in 1,000 Words.” Participants were given a genre, a few character names, and a 1,000 word limit—no more, no less. I received “mystery” as my genre, but I wrote an action piece instead.
