A Decaying Scene

I'm getting married in 12 hours! Time for some stress relief.

I decided to go ahead and actually try to write something for you all so you have something of mine that's actually recent to critique. I started it yesterday, so I can't really say my daily word count is decent yet. But this summer is all about improvement, so let's get it on!

The idea started out as just a guy running through a forest, but then I decided to make it a decaying forest and I abruptly had descriptions that made me reel away in joy (it was a complicated feeling). I hope you enjoy, and please let me know what you think!

688 words. (Gotta improve that word count!)

The Renewed Blog!

Hello, dear reader. My pen name is William Syler, and I'm reviving my blog and turning it into a place to post my stories.

FYI, I'm getting married tomorrow and going on our honeymoon immediately after. Once I get back I'll begin posting my stories and links.

My plans are as follows:
1. I will begin working on an AU fanfic entitled "The Distorted Man". It is a rewriting of the Pokémon world that answers all the questions about how the world works. (Where does Squirtle get all that water? How do Pokémon fit into Pokéballs? Why can Pokémon only have four attacks? And more!) I will be posting it on under my profile, William Syler ( (What a shock!) soon after I get back.
2. I will be working on finishing a short story I've started titled "Gold Iris". As that one finishes I will reveal what it's about.
3. I will be posting random scenes here to build up a tolerance towards actually writing and receiving critique.
4. Finally, I will be working towards getting up to writing for NaNoWriMo this November. ( That means getting my daily word count up to a minimum of 1,667 words per day. That's not a lot, right? ;)

For now, have a link to a story I wrote for a class at the college I just graduated from. Critique and enjoy!
