Welcome to – CBeamsStories.com

I have a passion for creative writing and here on this blog I will be sharing my work. My writing comes largely in the form of short stories and flash fiction; covering genres such as sci-fi, historical, cyberpunk, drama, fantasy and fanfic. In due time I will additionally produce self-published novellas and once I feel I have sufficiently grasped this craft, I will write – the big one – a novel.

Learning to write has been a long journey, though it’s a journey I love. There’s a constant flow of new skills to grasp; such as alliteration, Pathetic Fallacy, evocation, subtext, and the most important skill I’ve come to learn – balancing these techniques. Used too little and they remain flat, used too often and their shine is lost.

My inspiration to continue developing comes from reading the works of Robert E. Howard’s Conan the Barbarian series, George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four, William Golding’s Lord of the Flies and Amy Hening’s script for the Soul Reaver games.
