Ella: The Beginning

Hey everyone, the completed short story from which I posted an excerpt the other day has no had a comb through and I would like to present to you Draft 1. I would love for any feedback you can give this. The ending is a bit of a cliff hanger which is what I intended, as once I have done a few more drafts of this, I am going to move on to the next tale in this world I am looking to create.

The PDF is below and I thank you all in advance.

It’s just a quick mockup and it is 3am here so I’m a little tired aha. Another idea I had is to give a brief description of the blog under each of the button, explaining which is which.

Also, just a quick reminder, Words Form Windows has a Facebook page!


Music That Inspires Me: Crystallize by Lindsey Stirling

I’m going to be doing something a bit different with these now, to help myself get writing and to help all of you get creative I am going to link songs, describe why I have linked them, and then I will follow up with a mini-story aka flash fiction.
