Author has written 3 stories for Essay, and Mythology.
I'm just your average college-borne blue-eyed blonde that enjoys satire a little bit too much. "America, You May Close Your Borders" is a piece of work from my recently-finished AP English class, and is one of very few papers that earned full credit. The teacherdoubted the premise, at first- but the essay is certainly odd enough to live up to its title (and it's author, a rather vocal liberal).
"Medusa" is a short story written for a writing contest. As is typical for my school, it won the grand prize in 2005. I think it's because of the theme of death. The year before this, a persuasive essay lost to a one-act play in which the main character commits suicide at the end. The year after, a few reflective essays lost out to yet more death. The obvious answer? When involved in artsy, aim for the macabre. You'll go farther.
A work-in-progress may or may not be hosted here- I'm rather protective of my brain child, even if the characters involved grate at being sheltered. It's a rather dysfunctional fairy tale involving an enchanted frog, fairy-godmother-in-training, a Beast, a Beauty, and a grumpy swan princess. (After a century, who wouldn't be a tad grouchy? I'd be more worried if she was pleasant.) So, if anyone happens to be interested in what I do on this site- send an e-mail along. Hearing from readers is always great. (If you can carry on half a conversation, even better- I'll keep writing back.)
