New Stories on CABB ~ New Chambers

Challenge Stories and Drabbles

Along with (super slowly) working on Iron Behind the Velvet, I’ve managed to contribute to a few projects hosted on CABB ~ New Chambers. These challenges are a lot of fun. The prompts or themes or guidelines help me focus, help me think outside the universe of Iron/Velvet. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll consider participating!

First an Original Character Winterfest Guest story written for CABB’s WFOL Special Project. (Well, I shouldn’t say “first” because I was late turning mine in.) You can read all the submissions HERE. Mine is titled Into a New Belonging. It involves a character I made up (according to the guidelines) and a canon character I very rarely write about.

We brought back the Guess the Author Match Game this past Winterfest. Participants were asked to submit a story without the author byline and game players were to read the stories and match an author’s name based on style, storyline, etc. Those stories are now posted on CABB with no guessing! The authors’ names are typed in! You can read the submissions HERE!

And for this year’s April 12th celebration, we were issues three prompts designed to elicit 100-word stories – Drabbles, they’re called – and I managed to write two. Of course NOW I have an idea for the third one, LOL! You can read all the submissions to that Challenge HERE.

 I couldn’t let the Anniversary pass without making a new wallpaper to commemorate the day. You’ll recognize the pose, but a few things are different. Most obviously, they’re both smiling this time! Feel free to download it and use it on your computer.

So … Winterfest is over, the April 12th Anniversary is behind us. I should have Iron/Velvet finished by the end of summer, right?! (I wish, wish, wish!)

Thank you all so much for visiting and reading here at Imagine. Your presence and encouragement keep me going.

Catherine and Vincent in the same pose as the night V walked C back to her apartment after her recovery, but this time they're smiling! Text reads: April 12th. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving. (Kahlil Gibran)
