Creative Writing

I have developed a lot of different pieces of writing over the years and I’m so glad to be able to share it with you here! Feel free to take a look at any of my works and I hope you find them enjoyable!

As a Fellow Knight pt. 5

The stands were full. More people arrived to witness the joust to the death than any of the jousts before. Dionna, Aledon, and I struggled to find a seat, but eventually gave up. We were left to stand near the Noble Court. “I don’t understand why you want to watch this.” Dionna commented for theContinue reading “As a Fellow Knight pt. 5”

Grateful Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! I know a lot of people are super excited for the food: deep fried turkey, seasoned mash potatoes, casseroles of all kinds, honeyed rolls, and sweet potatoes seasoned with pecans–makes my stomach growl just thinking about it! So how did we get so lucky to have a day like this? Everyone knowsContinue reading “Grateful Thanksgiving”

A Penny for Your Thoughts

Everyone has those random thoughts you have throughout the day. Something might be stuck on your chest that you just can’t shake off. Writing helps me shake things off and maybe checking out these random thoughts might help you? Sometimes, we don’t realize that other people can think or feel the same way about a topic that we might think is off the wall.

As a Fellow Knight pt. 4

It didn’t take long for Dionna to point out Sir Gavin’s tent. It wasn’t the best looking, but it wasn’t terrible either. He only had one banner strung up on a pole. It was black and violet with silver lion on it. No one ever boasted of the lion part, so I was second guessingContinue reading “As a Fellow Knight pt. 4”

#CarolinaWW

I know, it’s weird, right? I’ve never used a hashtag as my blog post title, but I assure you, there’s a very good reason why. This week is the North Carolina Online Writing Workshop and I going to attend. It’s super exciting! It’s a two day event and the class schedule looks like it’ll haveContinue reading “#CarolinaWW”

As a Fellow Knight pt. 3

Just as we suspected, city guardsmen were stationed around the knight’s tents. A whole area of the King’s Field was set up for knights and other challengers to make their camp for the tournament. Most of them had large setups with flashy banners marked with sigils. It wasn’t hard to find Sir Duncan’s tent. EveryContinue reading “As a Fellow Knight pt. 3”

Going Down the Bayou

Halloween was last Sunday. A spooky night of trick-or-treating, scares, and costumes. My family loves Halloween–especially my brother. So, a couple years ago, we started a tradition of doing a haunted garage Halloween night for every trick-or-treater that came through our neighborhood. Our decor gets bigger every year and this year our theme was witchContinue reading “Going Down the Bayou”

As a Fellow Knight pt. 2

A true joust is one of respect between opponents. The points are given fairly by the Knight Marshal. Both knights ride at the same time and if one should ask for Mercy’s Pass, it should be granted to them. The hits should be clean and directly to the other rider’s shield. Failing to present aContinue reading “As a Fellow Knight pt. 2”

A Voice to Choose

My heart is heavy The journey weighs The strength of dreams slowly wanes Such majesty, such wonder from a story they say is too long A new edit. A new improvement But word count restricts it’s movement.A daunting task. An impossible request To satisfy this yearning inside my chest. “give up” sweet whispers inside myContinue reading “A Voice to Choose”

As a Fellow Knight

The city was alive with the King’s Festival when my companions and I arrived. Colorful banners were strung throughout the air. Music lifted spirits so high that my aching feet no longer felt sore. People of varying backgrounds crowded the streets. I can’t remember the last time we came to the city. My companions andContinue reading “As a Fellow Knight”

The Writing Struggle

Every writer has a least favorite type of scene to write. Some writers don’t like writing dialogue. Others don’t like the romantic bits. As for me? Well, one of my least favorite types of scenes to write are battle scenes. Battle scenes and other various action sequences bring out my reluctant groan! “But Nikki, youContinue reading “The Writing Struggle”

About Me

Hey, I’m Nikki! I am a nerdy geek who has a passion for writing, drawing, painting, and many other art media. Ever since I can remember, I’ve been crafting stories in my head whether they were original works or fanfictions. Over ten years ago, I started writing a novel and developing my skills as a writer, and, now, that novel is complete! I’m currently working on finding representation for it and turning my other stories into future novels! I do consider myself a Christian writer, but most of my stories are all fantasy and sci-fi based. Read more...
