Weekly Reading List #18

By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there readers! So this may be my last really good reading list since I will be starting school next week at Emerson provided that the tropical storm/hurricane does not impede my journey. Since I will be starting school I will mostly be reading school books and ebooks so my reading lists may fluctuate a lot. As for what you can expect in reviews, well there might be a lag here or there since I will also be working 2 jobs and have probably bunches of school work. Ah school, you are so necessary and time consuming. I will be returning to Emerson leaving FL on my 24th birthday (there could be worse birthday’s right?) and hopefully I will get to read everything that I want to read outside of school and work on my side projects and bracelets. On the bright side, I’ll be waking up early because I have to…wait, is that a bright side?

Anyway, you’ve had enough of my rambling so here are the books I hope to read this coming week. And, as always, all synopsis’ are courtesy of Goodreads. Happy reading!

Yellow Ducks – A Short Story

By: Cynthia Ayala

So this was the last short story I wrote before I took my Leave of Absence at Emerson College.  I think this one is one of my more favorite short stories that I wrote.  It started as a writing exercise and then I decided I wanted to expand the idea.  My first draft was okay and this is my third draft that I kind of wish I had handed in as my Final.  I still got a B+ but I believe this is an improved version of the story. Continue reading “Yellow Ducks – A Short Story”

During my freshman year at college I was asked to write a short story for my Creative Writing class. This was the final draft. Not the one I initially presented in the class but one that has been edited – I hope – and one I really enjoyed writing because I love subtly in writing and this is the story I experimented that with.
