Message from Writer

To those who remember us,
Thanks for everything, are 2 years of activity were everything, it was truly amazing.

To those who don't know us,
You missed a heck of a couple of years, but I'm sure your time here will still be amazing. Perhaps one day we'll be back and active. Perhaps.

    lower case prose
    something about the melancholy sadness dmoral captures in this piece is so fitting of the realization of us losing our youth.

    this piece is absolutely vivid with its imagery. it's colorful, and beautiful, and leaves you feeling like our own world is far too bland.

    She has her own writing style and most importantly her pieces transport the reader to that era. You can actually picture very scene.

    Has anyone read such a piece before? No. It is so unique and personal. I cannot help but read it over and over again.

    The way she had described her sister is so beautiful and cute. She's such a kind person as well so I think she needs more recognition.

    "Infinite"
    by And_the_Stars_Laughed
    Historical Fiction
    The family dynamic in this story is so sweet, and yet so sad. The author perfectly captures the hopelessness of poverty and starvation during the Irish Potato Famine. The description is also beautiful.

    "How Endings Can Lead to New Beginnings"
    by WhiteMountains
    Simple/Short But Powerful
    This was such a sweet piece; I loved the country/farm setting, and the dynamic between the two characters was lovely.

    "The Horse"
    by Writing4Life

    I love the repetition of this piece, and how it captures the characteristics of a horse very well.

    The message is so real and I think it's something everyone should read simply because of the truth of this piece.

    this love is worth more than all the pennies in the world by BurningMidnightOil
    short but powerful, poem
    https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/151929/version/296569
    it's timeless and locationless (if that's a word), it took me a far off place filled with emotions and metaphors i loved.

    title: the highest form of love
    author: the contrarian
    category: tragedy, narrative
    reason: big sad and big gay; what more do we need in life? this story, though about death, is full of life and absolutely wonderful
    link: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/153727/version/300416

    title: after the violets bloom
    author: surly wombat
    category: poetry, fantasy
    reason: hfdkjshfjddsdaj lesbian witches!!! as much of surly's poetry is, this is absolutely magical

    title: russian roulette
    author: elisa
    category: poem, tragedy
    reason: elisa's poetry is absolutely exquisite - her rhythm and diction never fail to impress me, and the imagery in this piece is stellar beyond belief.
    link: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/149938/version/292597

    title: And The Thought of the Sky Can’t Hurt You, If You’ve Got a God at Your Side.
    author: pouringoutthesun
    category: narrative, fantasy
    reason: there's no compliments i can give to pots' work that will do it justice. her stories create worlds within worlds, and with every new installment of her work, i feel more and more like i want to live in the dreamscape that is her mind.
    link: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/150593/version/293929

    title: ring like a bell through the night
    author: norah
    category: narrative, folklore
    reason: i love how norah has characterised this obscure pagan deity as a rootin' tootin' cowboy shootin' lass - there's really nothing quite like it!
    link: https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/152295/version/297403

    title: american poet
    author: elisa
    category: poem, tragedy, historical
    reason: i was literally in shock when i finished reading this poem for the first time. elisa's emotional rant brings out all kinds of feelings at the injustice of the world and the dangers of perception when there's so much being covered up. this is a poem that every man, woman, and child should read.
