PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition

   I almost hit Raven with my car when I pulled into the driveway. Slamming on the brakes and flinging gravel into the wet grass, I blared the horn. "Out of the way, Raven!" I shouted. I let out a slow breath, willing the shaking to stop. No one would forgive me, especially not myself, if I killed Raven- the twin who was supposed to live -even on accident.

The Trees Where Red and his Truck Was Sky Blue

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition

by Lily Harlin
     Audrey sat on her old wooden porch smoking a cigarette. The sun, for the first time that day, peered out from behind the heavy mists and shone on the orange and red trees of the Appalachian mountains. It was mid November, and the cold was seeping down from the mountains, on to Little Sticks Road.
     Audrey nervously tapped her foot on the cracked wood of the porch. She was so focused, she didn't...

Trading Money for Love

PROMPT: Numerous Narrators

Kylie's POV
This wasn't suppose to be happening. I wasn't supposed to be in the arms of a man so close to marrying another. But the way my body warmed and tingled close to him couldn't be ignored. And even though I knew this wasn't correct, I also knew Edgar, my future husband, doesn't love me and neither do I. " But you guys are perfect for each other and it would finally close the treaty between both family companies."...

To address your message - yes this absolutely makes sense and no, it is absolutely not too gay! I agree, although there are growing numbers, there isn't enough queer fiction, especially fiction like this where being gay isn't the forefront...

The Land Beyond

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things

There's a reason why humans are the only immoral creatures,
Why the devil seems to reside in all of us.

When my voice seems to tremble with lost words and my hands can't stop shaking with ghosts of movement, I can go to a place.
A place where the wind can sing and the steady rocks rumble.
A place where no lies lie, a place where nothing happens and everything happens, but only in the mind.

I have had enough. 
Enough of the world spinning. 
Enough of my hand's shaking. 
Enough of my heart shaking. 
Enough

I am finished. 
Finished with my leg numbing. 
Finished with the heavy breathing. 
Finished with the neverending anxiety. 
Finished

I am done. 
Done with the tears that never cease to fall.
Done with the aching pain in my heart. 
Done with the constant panic attacks.
Done

So now that enough is enough. 
I will end it.

Black Lives Matter

Black lives contain matter. Let's talk about that matter. As wikipedia states "In the classical physics observed in everyday life, matter is any substance that has mass and takes up space by having volume. This includes atoms and anything made up of these, but not other energy phenomena or waves such as light or sound.[1][2] More generally, however, in (modernphysics, matter is not a fundamental concept because a universal definition of it...

My Friend Clem- an extract from Chapter Twelve

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition

    We climbed like shadows along the walls, our feet silent on the stone steps.

    “Jazz, where are we going?” I asked, not for the first time. Her laughter echoed above me. She'd lured me across town and, to my surprise, persuaded me into the local museum. I'd been confused- she thought her place was here, among the relics? But I'd followed anyway as she ushered me through the rooms and up the stairs, higher and higher. We passed stuffed animals...

Obsession

It feels all like a dream. I'm so near, yet so far. With just one touch I can find them, but I can never reach out to them. The displeasure made my heart throb, as I can only look at pictures as it's the only thing that keeps us connected.

I've been dreaded in pain - a pleasurable pain - and I can't seem to swim out of this craving. Like the pied piper, when it plays the soothing yet...

Maverick Twain: Epilogue (To Fade Away Into the Forest Dim...)

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition

    Maverick looked down, for now he could see by the moon's valiant gleam: there was a fine layer of white on the stony floor. He knelt and groped at it, realising that the area was covered in pieces of paper - millions of them. He looked at the sheet in his hand. It was crumpled - the writing smudged and illegible. It was a poem.He let it fall and attained another one, skim-reading its soulful song lyrics....
