Hey everyone! I’m very humbly asking you to help me with some very important decisions. There are a *few* novels that I’m working on. (Few is a relative term, btw). I would love if you could give me suggestions on:

3. Other ideas about the stories listed below

They call me ‘Fleur Darby’.
            They say this because I refuse to give them my real name, hence they allocated me this typical artificial ID. The name is ironic, since there’s nothing typical about me at all.

Saving Me

Anxiety hits me at the speed of light, never

 Self-doubt makes me question if I should continue

Always in a room with loneliness, isolating

My head pivots backwards, looking back

All past sins. All past failures plague my cerebral, during the times

I Guess This Is Home

PROMPT: Love After Love

I've also been alone
                                Am I missing out?
no siblings to groan
                                who frequents the walls of their mind
no friends to phone
                                Forever scribbling their spouts
left to my own tone
                                when it's supposed to be mined
but this is my home

knowing that she has no moves left
or nowhere else to go.
secretly though
he'd been looking ahead,
already knowing she'd run out of options
and now she did.

there's a monotone voice barely speaking
toward the end of the round when they stop
caring,
because life isn't fun if...
