I’ve been needing to find new things to keep me entertained throughout my “off” days. If I don’t have anything new going on, I usually post a picture quote I’ve found on Pinterest, but lately I’ve been letting my creativity come out in different forms. Before, I let out my thoughts and feelings through song. I’d write songs about what I or somebody else was going through at that point of time. I haven’t written a song about my life or anybody’s life in a while. I have found a new way in getting songs for songs though. Since my music taste getting more and more fantasy like, I’ve been trying to get more into writing about myths and fantasies. It’s all new for me, and it’s not really an easy process to get through, but it’s fun nevertheless. I’ve been doing “Picture It & Write” on Ermiliablog. I’ve done about eight of those and I feel like doing that, but I got to admit I miss writing my short stories I used to do in my free time at school. So I think this is my chance to bring back some fun stories like the ones I made up in school. I hope you like these short stories as I post.
