Never Going Home (277 Characters)

Ghost Ship in Storm

Little Bethy's smile glowed as she took to the swing.

Cutthroat retracted his spyglass, slid it within his frock-coat, and wiped a tear away.

Lightning flashed and the ocean boiled.

"I'm comin', Bethy," he vowed, as he took to the helm—a vow repeated for a thousand years by then.

  2. Can I simply say what a comfort to find somebody whoo truly knows a story. I was surprised you aren’t more popular because you certainly have the gift.

    1. Hello there,

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I’ve written in private for years and I’m just now getting my writing out there. I hope my stories will grow in popularity over time.

      I’m writing a steampunk fantasy novel, and it’s compliments like yours that keep me going. Thank you again for your support!

      Take care,
      C.R.

  3. Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal butt I can figure things out prety fast.

    I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to
    start. Do you have aany tips or suggestions?
    Cheers

    1. Hey Donette,

      I’m a full-time professional web developer and graphic designer (in addition to writing these stories)… so a lot of the layout, animations, etc. are of my own design.

      However, WordPress has some great free options for starting blogs and they have lots of tutorials in their forums. I hope this has been of some help.

      Best of luck starting your blog. Give me a shout out when you’ve got yours up and running and I’ll take a look. 🙂 Thank you for your comment!

      Take care,
      C.R.

      I really enjoy stories by Brandon Sanderson. You can find some of his sample chapters here:

      Unfortunately, I don’t really follow any other blogs. I hope to remedy that soon. Thank you again for your comment. I hope you have a lovely day!

    1. I’m so sorry to hear that your comment disappeared, Cara. All comments are moderated for spam before posting, but I don’t see anything on the back-end of the website either. 🙁 Must’ve been a computer glitch.

      Anyway, thank you for taking the time to write another comment. I’m so glad you are enjoying my blog! <3 I hope you have a lovely day! New Tiny Epic Tale posting tomorrow.
