Creative writing is one of my hobbies. I’m working on a fantasy novel, and every now and then I write short stories, which can be found below. I’ve also written a number of things on Typetrigger.

Short stories

Night Train — I wrote this piece (Short story? Collection of musings?) on a train at night at the end of summer 2011. It may be allegorical; but I’m not sure it’s my place to decide.

Come Alive — This short story was mainly inspired by the lyric from We Found Love by Rihanna and Calvin Harris.

Baščaršija Burns — I wrote the first version of this short story as an English assignment, but the darkly fascinating siege of Sarajevo kept nagging in my mind until I rewrote it as an entry to the Wicked Young Writers competition in 2011.

Only in Dreams and Nightmares — No comment.

Beneath the Sky — An alternative myth, for an alternative world.

Yet it moves — This short piece was inspired by the Typetrigger prompt of the same name, but came to me a few months after I’d seen the prompt.


Typetrigger is a website which releases a writing prompt every four hours and allows you to publish a response of up to 300 words. I’ve published around a dozen responses in the past, which can be viewed on my profile.
