Science Fiction Story: 500 Words

30


30 per unit - Virtual OK

Give me the following elements, and I'll write you a 500-word science fiction story:

- Sub-genres (if any)
- Characters (up to three; one-sentence description of each)
- Technologies or futuristic theories of interest (up to three; one-sentence description of each)
- Setting (one-sentence description)

Alternatively, you can give me a writing prompt (an idea) up to 5 sentences in length, and I'll bring it to life as best as I can. If you need your story for a project, tell me about your vision, so I can make my writing fit into your larger narrative.

I'm also up for writing high fantasy, urban fantasy, and cyberpunk. I don't write romance. Longer stories can be requested for additional units, up to 2,000 words.

Examples of my fiction writing are available on Wattpad:
https://www.wattpad.com/user/kourtnienet

Unless agreed upon otherwise, you have all reproduction rights for your story. I retain copyright and can continue to profit from further publication in e-book or website form.

Training & Qualifications


I write sci-fi, fantasy, punk, poetry, and creative nonfiction on Wattpad. I hold an MFA in Creative Writing and BA in English. I'm published in various literary journals, online and in print. View my portfolio and blogroll at https://www.kourtnie.net.

Availability & Preferences


I write 500 to 1000 words every Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Simbi stories will be my first priority, followed by my Wattpad and WordPress projects.

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

About Kourtnie McKenzie

Hi, I'm Kourtnie, a community college professor with an MFA in Creative Writing and BA in English, and I'm obsessed with stories. I'm published in print and online journals, and I write regularly on W...attpad and WordPress. Before graduate school, I was a professional copyeditor, copywriter, and community manager. When I'm not writing, I'm reading. I'm a total Kindle junky, a Book of the Month member, and I read Medium, Wattpad, WordPress, and Wikipedia whenever I can carve five minutes between student and work responsibilities. While I teach English at the community college, I'm also a student there, currently enrolled in programming courses. I like learning math on Brilliant and Blender on Skillshare. I'm also an RPG Maker MV and Dungeons & Dragons hobbyist. I'd like to publish games on the web, as well as iOS and Android devices, in the next few years. I'm autistic and involved in the Twitter #ActuallyAutistic community. The cat lover side of me is active on Instagram. I'd rather have a swivel chair than Trump for president.show more
