Chloe’s Diary (Page 1)

My name is Chloe. And this is my diary. I am 19 years old and I live in what’s left of Florida with what’s left of my family. His name is Anderson (Andy for short) and he’s a 1yr old Labrador. He’s a great listener but I need somewhere I can keep my thoughts, my secrets…somewhere to record what’s been happening to us. It all started about a year ago, right around when Andy was born. There had been talk of an evacuation and drills for months before anything happened but no one would tell us what it was about, what was happening. They tried to cover it up and because of that they left their citizens unprepared and defenseless…they saved themselves.

I’m currently hiding in an undisclosed location out side of town. I can’t risk writing exacts here in case one of them finds it. I’m not even sure there’s any more humans left…what if I’m all that’s left? Besides not risking being too close to too many of them, Andy is still a puppy and his barking could get us into a lot of trouble any closer to the center of town…he’s a liability…but he’s all I have left.

Food is getting scarce and a trip into town is becoming inevitable. I’m going to have to leave Andy behind..he’s too loud to drag into town. Damn dog doesn’t know when to shut up.

Anyway, it’s getting dark and the stars aren’t shining as bright as they used to..

Until next time Diary,

If there is a next time.

Different Direction!

Hey everyone!

So I have decided to go in a different direction with this blog. As I’m sure you’ve noticed it’s been all over the place in the past. With fiction stories, poems, ranting, music and movie reviews. There’s been topics about everything on here and I want to streamline it and make it more about one thing and more cohesive.

I still want to write fiction and keep up on my creative writing so what I’m going to do is start a diary from a fictional character and write the blog from that perspective so that it will have more creative elements and more of a focus and a storyline. I am currently not feeling well but hopefully the first post will be up sometime between tonight and tomorrow. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and comments about this once it takes off and I hope you will all continue to support me!

I also recently got a different job and it has more of a set schedule so I should be able to post pretty regularly. I want to be able to give you guys more content and more to follow than just posting once or twice every few weeks and I do apologize for all the inconsistencies in my writing.

Once I get going on this, if it’s really popular and something people like and want to see more of, I might recruit a follower or two to do some cover art or illustrations for me as well!

I hope this works out and I’m really liking this new direction!

Again thank you all for the support!

What’s the point?

I haven’t been writing often.

The reason for that is two sided but they also intertwine.

I’ve been struggling with feeling depressed lately. I’ve been tired and sluggish and emotional and losing interest in everyday activities.

Another reason, that could be fueling my depression is often I’ll sit down to write but it’ll occur to me that my writing doesn’t matter. That my words will have no impact on anyone. That what I have to say doesn’t matter to anyone. And that’s when I have to wonder what the point is writing anything at all in the first place.

I love writing and being creative and I hope I can get back into the swing of things. Until then I hope you can all be patient with me and understanding while I try to find inspiration. Thank you all.
