A Blessing In Disguise

PROMPT: Personal Narrative Competition 2018

I was just eight when I first met her. She was a transfer student from China. She had a relatively delicate frame, with bobbed hair and dark brown eyes. She was Lucy.

Oblivious and in my own world at that point of time, I had absolutely no intention to chum up with her. Due to her mediocre English, no one could really interact with her and break the ice.

However, it was not long after the start of the school...

PROMPT: Personal Narrative Competition 2018


     My body trembled like an alarm clock, ringing at six a.m. Bellows tainted my thoughts as scorching rubber contaminated my lungs. The agony of my family screamed mercilessly.
   "Oh my god! Oh my god!" My mother yelled.
   "Mom! Mom!" My brother pleaded.
   Life slowed as I took in my next destination fearfully. My heart pounded like a drum, but it may not beat much longer.
   BASH

Eyeroll

FREE WRITING

The delicacy of an eye roll.
A simple movement of the eyes.

Though, possibly impolite, extremely convenient... and frustrating, at times.

How Writing Changed Me

PROMPT: Personal Narrative Competition 2018

I like to think that I was born a writer- that the second I came into this world, some god had pointed his finger at me and said, "That girl is going to be a writer." I was always a quiet kid, and people often asked me what I was thinking about. My response was always the same, "I'm thinking of a story." When I was younger, I always included myself in these stories. I ran from the government, acquired crazy...

Are You?

FREE WRITING

“I am significant,” screams the dust speck
 
“I am human,” smiles the killer
 
“I am a sinner,” cries the priest
 
“I am God,” howls our government
 
“I am happy,” hums the famous
 
“I am nothing,” weeps the whore
 
“I am wanted,” grins the child
 

What a funny world we live in.

Real Life

PROMPT: Personal Narrative Competition 2018

I've just finished the series Dance Academy that stopped at the devastating death of Sammy (the feel-good character). The other characters reactions sent me into a fit of tears over his tragic death and I'm now left with this gaping hole in my chest. You see, throughout this series I've watched the rise and fall of ballet politic, friendships emerge, break and then heal over, and dreams and ambitions crystalise in the characters hands but I always felt like an...
