If I had to live by the words I wrote I would either be a mermaid, an Alien Princess, a superpowered heroine or a desperate detective.

    I, as well as the rest of the world, got the sad news of Stan Lee's death today. As the co-creator of Marvel and many superheroes, he stood as one of my idols and one of those inspiring souls who encouraged me to start writing. I don't really know how to feel at the moment but I am living by the words he wrote; "...if you want to be a writer, keep writing."
    Rest in Peace Stan Lee.

    Iron Man and the Avengers, Captain America, and Thor. We can't forget mischevious Loki.
    "With great power comes great responsibility" and my all-time favorite "HULK SMASH!"

    You can only guess at what goes on in a woman's house. You'd barely dare to dream of what goes on in a witch's basement. (This is a super-super short story I wrote to get into a creative writing workshop...
