Darkened Daughter

He was handsome Tara thought, eyes set on the young man dragged before her father for execution. The council members had attempted to convince her that there would be a fair trial, an opportunity for the boy to convince them that no real harm had be done and he would no doubt be sent home that evening.

Tara watched him pale as his knees stuck to the congealed blood sticking to the throne room floor. His wasn’t the first trial of the day.


I’m going to try and write ten thousand words in the next couple of days. Five thousand today and five thousand tomorrow. I need to try and get on with these novels, especially since the notes for them are starting to take up far more space than is currently available in my room.

Wish me luck!

Carol Forrester is a twenty-three year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.
