December marks the publication of my 6th professional story and my first appearance in DreamForge Magazine :)
Cessation of Civilization features a student struggling over her final project, all the trials of every step in creating something as immense as an entire world.
This story originated from the idea of playing god in other people’s lives, getting to look down and push and prod them into action. Similar to how, as a writer, you get to design whole worlds, destroy character lives or make them worth living, worth reading about. Yet, it’s also about failure, success, and the beauty found in both of those things.
If you get a chance to read this one, I hope it makes you smile :)
This story isn’t available for free to read, however, here is a limited time only discount for a DreamForge subscription :) The stories are well-written and diverse and the gorgeous artwork that goes along with each one is something you truly don’t get with most magazines.
