Working on a new story. All writing was done in the post. Let’s see what happens!
Hey guys, welcome back! We’re half-way through another week! We can do it! Go us! Yay!
I thought we all needed that 😛
So my writing has been struggling again, and it’s my fault. I just have not been giving myself time to sit down and just write. Plus nothing has been jumping into my head screaming to point that I have to write it down… I rely too heavily on that I’ve found which is not good…
Well I’m going to try to change that today.
I’ve been spending a lot of time going and finding prompts, reading short stories, music and stories in general just to find inspiration. And I found some.
I thought it would be fun to take a prompt, write some words to hopefully make a start of a story completely raw. What you get here is everything I’ve come up with. I may come back (in a different post, of course) and edit what I have, add to it, a combination of the two, who knows. I just want to be raw with my writing because that’s part of the beauty of it and I just like to be this open with you guys. And you guys don’t seem to mind it too much, or do you? 🙂
This is prompt I found online and am going to use: ‘two people who hate each other in real life but are unaware that online they are best friends.’
Here we go:
Agatha hated going to school. Every morning her mother had to argue with Agatha until she finally gave up and went to school. “Aggie, why do you hate going to school so much? Why do we have to do this every single morning,” Agatha’s mom, Susan asked.
“The kids are awful, Mom. Why can’t I just stay home and do online school? It’s just high school, I’ll go to college and even live there if you want! Just please don’t make me keep going,” Agatha said.
“What’s going on at school? Is Violet picking on you again? Do you want me to talk to someone? The principal, you counselor, anyone? You can’t just stop going, sweetie,” Susan said.
“No. Don’t call anyone. I don’t want to talk about it anymore. You just don’t understand. See you after school,” Agatha said as she grabbed her backpack and keys and headed for the door.
Before she could have heard a response from her mother, Agatha was out the door and in her car. She was quick to start it and back out of the driveway so she could get her day started. The sooner the day started the sooner it ended, she thought. Agatha stopped at a house a couple blocks from her own to pick her best friend Trevor up for school. “Hurry up Trev, let’s go,” she yelled out the window.
“Hold on, Aggie. You have to at least let the car come to a complete stop, you know,” Trevor chuckled reaching for the door handle to get in. “I see you couldn’t talk Susan into letting you stay home today, huh?”
“Obviously. Can you get a move on please? I want to hurry up and get today over with,” Agatha growled.
“Dude come on, it’s just school. We only have a couple weeks left until summer and soon you won’t have to worry about Violet and her little clique. Wait. Did something else happen yesterday that I don’t know about?”
Agatha’s face turned red. She tried to hide both her anger and embarrassment about what happened yesterday by using the right turn she was about to take to her advantage but Trevor her face before she had much of a chance to hide it. “No. She’s just a bitch who’s goal in life is to make me as miserable as possible. So just the usual.”
“Agatha! You are lying to me. What happened?”
“Oh hey look, school. We should hurry up and find a parking spot. Homeroom is starting soon, you know.”
“We’re in the same homeroom Aggie. Might as well just tell me now.”
Okay so this is all I got for now. For now.
So do I have any direction for this? Yeah. Basically what I want to see happen in this is Violet is the big bad popular bitch in school with her clique. They’re pretty much your stereotypical popular bully kids in high school but Violet plays a pretty popular MMO which is not known to anyone. She ends up unknowingly befriending Agatha who is a total nerd and also plays the MMO. The two don’t know who they are in real life, become closer and closer and then Violet tells Agatha something and she realizes who she is. Don’t know what’s going to be the conclusion quite yet but I do know I want to make it less of a typical popular kid/geek kid story line if that makes any sense. It’s rough though. Nothing is set in stone but then again, nothing ever is when it comes to writing 😛
I’m looking forward to continuing to work on this piece and see where it goes.
Feel free to leave opinions and suggestions for me!
