Like Chicken Scratch

Creative writing and fiction blog, not written by chickens


Welcome to Like Chicken Scratch! This is a creative writing and fiction blog by Sonia Beltz, a human being whose handwriting is like chicken scratch! Posts will appear in two types: Stories and Storytelling. Check out “Stories” for new fiction and essays, along with other creative writing, with new posts arriving every Wednesday. On Fridays, check out “Storytelling,” where I’ll dissect the whys and hows of storytelling, combining history and pop culture with the joys for creative writing. Each week’s posts will follow a similar theme, so read both together for the full Like Chicken Scratch experience!
