“Anyway,” I said, “a cat’s lifespan is only fifteen years, twenty tops. You’ll be leaving soon.”
The Cat is an interesting short story that follows a protagonist who seems to follow the mundane flow of society, working, and sharing her life with a cat that her late mother has left behind. When she decides that she might like to start dating, she jumps right in. I do not believe it is a story based around love, but one of assertiveness. She wants what she wants, and is not afraid to tell a man it's time for him to leave her space when she wants to be alone. Overall, I found it to be an interesting piece of short fiction, and would recommend it to anyone who likes cats and assertive women. I also highly recommend checking out the Necessary Fiction website for great literary content.
for your personal story to be created. They ask if they can text you, so the person writing the story based on your photos can have more to work with , and I said yes. Texting is much more modern than a phone call these days, and so I like that they work this way, it's much more comfortable of an experience overall.
A very nice woman name Stephani texted me about thirty minutes later, asking me my name, and a few details about the photos. She asked me about my trip last Summer, and I found her quite easy to talk to. I even asked he a bit about herself and how she liked her job, and she was kind and honest. Overall, it was a good experience. After we talked for a while she told me that she'd get to work on my story, and we said our farewells.
About an hour later my story was ready. It was pretty good, and I liked the fact that I could connect my account to Alexa and have it read aloud to me. My main complaint is that she spelled my name wrong, and I can't correct it. They say that you will be able to edit your stories eventually, I just hope I'm able to do it sooner rather than later because I absolutely hate when my name is spelled with an 'H'.
It's an interesting idea, letting someone write a story about your memories, and I think I would very much like to be a part of it. I recommend trying it at least once.
I've added a button with a link to my story if you're interested. It's called Italian Daze.
Have a lovely Friday,
"Scowl fiercely. Tell them you're a walking blade."
It's August 21st. I turned 22 three days ago. It's strange that adulthood seems to be an unnoticeable, intangible concept. My face looks the same, I feel the same. How do I know that I've aged? I suppose I'll be able to tell a few years from now.
I've added a poetry page to my website today. It's filled with old and new poetry, mostly sad and terrible writing, but I figured it would be good to post an example of how one grows over time. One day writing lame depressing poetry, then eventually writing actually decent works. Anyway, It seemed like an interesting way to share how I have sometimes expressed my feelings.
Also, I'm thinking of reading a short piece of fiction/non-fiction/poetry everyday for the rest of the year. If you have any recommendations, please suggest a work in the comments! It may not work out, but at least I will attempt to use my mind more and more now that school is over. Everyone tells you that life will be different and that the transition is difficult, but you never believe them until you actually experience it. Sigh.
