Adventurer’s Academy

When I started this blog, I posted a few moodboards I’d been playing with, and one of them was Adventurer’s Academy. The idea is there is a school for adventurers to learn their basic skills, focusing either in magic, fighting, or stealth, with a sort of Harry Potter at the RenFaire vibe. I’ve played with the concept a few times, the original version of it being more serious in its fantasy world, while this version steals a few characters from other things I’ve trashed and gives a more lighthearted story. Originally this was going to be the month by month story I planned to post here, but my usual writing anxiety has put its first part in rewrites a few times, with me going back and forth on how I wanted to tell it (which is the sort of process that led Laemmle High to be the thing I’m posting instead).

But I have a lot of fun with these characters and I’ve been trying to flesh them out more.

A Writing Journal

I’ve been writing my entire life, but completing things is a different story. I’ve been taking steps to make complete things I feel good about publishing where people can see it, so here I am, using this as a journal to put short stories, development pieces, and stories I want to explore. I’ve been having fun with my old west ghost story style serial, as well as my journey reliving the nostalgia of R.L. Stine’s Fear Street, so I’m hoping to upload things here that don’t fit into either category.
