Bedlam, Crazy Bedlam

Here is an old short-story I wrote for Horror Homework, as part of their March Art Contest with Clive Barker.

I was lucky enough to have my submission chosen among the finalists, which was pretty cool.

If you follow this link you can see all the other cool stuff that people did for the contest, my story is also there and its a part of this post if you click ‘Read More’.

“A Rose By Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet”

So, I had to do a creative adaptation a wee bit ago as part of my coursework. Since I now have the mark for it, I thought I would put the creative piece up here (no one wants an essay). Out of all the creative pieces I ended up doing for this particular act and scene, this was the most PG. I might put the more explicit versions up at some point.

As you can see, my adaptation followed Queer Theory. So if LGBT+ stuff is not your cup of tea, you probably are going to want to give this a miss.

Cadaver Reflection

This was something I scribbled down quite a while ago, it was part of a competition I entered a while back that focused on the theme of body image.

So, I though it best to put a warning that this story does centre on a horribly distorted body image with elements of an eating disorder. So, if this is something you may find uncomfortable or distressing, then you may want to give this a miss.

If not, then if you click ‘Read More’ you can read the story.

It’s The Little Things

I have never really been much of a traditional romance writer, it just happens to be a genre I struggle with as most of my characters tend to possess traits that are generally unassociated with it.

I’m pretty sure the only experience I have with romance writing is with the game Shelf Life: A Maize-Based Love Story, for which I did some of the writing alongside a group of pretty cool people.

Still, here is a little something I scribbled a while back for a contest that wanted slight twists on traditional romantic fiction.

The Echoed Lay of Narcissus

So, this is a written piece I did for The Student Wordsmith’s literary journal, The Purple Breakfast Review. It was for their 4th publication and had to be themed around ‘Echoes’, reading at exactly 1000 words in length.

My Jekyll Doesn’t Hyde In Gomorrah

Here is an adaptation piece I did, that takes the scene in Chapter Four of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, wherein Inspector Newcomen and Gabriel Utterson travel to Hyde’s apartment in Soho in an attempt to arrest Hyde for his murder of Sir Danvers Carew.
