Fool me once, shame on you.

I used to write short stories a lot more often than I do now – the ‘Novel’ is my main focus right now – but I quite liked having this change. The story flowed out onto the page and didn’t even require that much editing. Again, very different from the ‘Novel’ I’m working on.

The video above is of me reading a short story called Fool me once, shame on you. I originally wrote this story to submit for the Wicked Young Writers’ Awards – which is the main reason it is this short as the word limit was 750 words – and, having received no prize but still liking it a lot, I decided to make this video with it.

It is certainly very different from anything I’ve ever made before, but I quite like it a lot. Having said that, part of me is just a teeny weeny bit nervous about this video because it’s so different – I also don’t read out loud a lot, so there’s that. But I have decided to just going to roll with it. Wanting to make more ‘film’-like videos, but not really knowing how or what, perhaps this is a good start. And who knows – I might try something like this again in the future.

Love,

Christa
