My first short story.

Rate this Entry
I've finally decided to give writing a shot. I've heard that it's a good idea for beginners to start with short stories, so this is what I've decided to go with. My first story is about a gifted, yet troubled child and her encounter with a unicorn. The working title so far is "Twinkle and the Unicorn," although I might go with "The Girl Forlorn and the Unicorn." Does this sound too sappy? I suppose any story featuring a unicorn can never be too sappy. XD So far my main challenges are proper grammar/punctuation and a short attention span, but I think in time these challenges can be overcome. Wish me luck!

    You are too kind. I'm most definitely going to post it, but I wasn't sure as to whether I should post it on my blog or the forum. Would I be likely to get more replies on the forum??

    Personally, I would post to the forum if you are looking for critique. You can always post to the blog afterwards if you like
