Message from Writer

I dedicate my writing to my parents and my little sister, Zi. I don’t know where I would be without you, sis. Thank you for all the laughs! Oreo and Company forever!

Hi everyone! I joined in July 2020. THANK YOU ALL! I owe so much to Kit-Kat Sully, Bhavya’s Treasure, SavannaC!, books4life, ava09, Beth R., Mindfruit, FantasyOtter12, and Lata. B

A huge THANK YOU to the amazing
V-Rose! Check out her awesome chapters of Flying on Broken Wings!

The Taste of Pure Light

September 6, 2020

FREE WRITING

28
Sunlight tastes like a tingly feeling on your tongue. It spreads all over you, as sweet as a thousand honeysuckles. It engulfs you, lifting you up out of your troubles and filling your mind and hear with joy and light. 
  It is pure, and you can taste its purity if you only take a moment to let it sink in. It tastes like freedom, like memories, like a gentle kiss from the sun.
 But what is it? What is this glorious light?
 It is laughter. It is smiles. It is kindness.
 It is sensitivity and encouragement.
 It is being there for someone who needs it.

What is sunlight? 

Sunlight is good, and in turn, good actions spread light in this dark world.


How does sunlight taste?

 It tastes like helping others.
This is based off a prompt my friend V-Rose found called “What Does Sunlight Taste Like?” Hope you enjoy!

    Hey, Eden!! So, I finally wrote a paper based off of this prompt: Taste the Sunlight https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/191375/version/387565
    I hope you like it! Oh, and I started following V-Rose and read her work and it was as good as you said, XD!

    Re: THANK YOU EDEN for the SHOUT-OUT in the message box! :D You're such an encouraging being... Love!
    I'm sorry I would not able to read your BEAUTIFUL work for a few days (till Sep 27) because of my Exams but as soon as I would be done with them, I'm gonna glide to read Escape from District Chapter 11 :D
    Yes, each country is beautiful in its own way. I also want to travel around and maybe we will bump into each other at the airport some day. XD
    If you're not busy or caught up in some indispensable task and if you FEEL like (only then) reviewing something, then I'd be highly obliged to have an insightful review on "Aam". I've read some of your reviews and I feel you grasp the essence of the piece very well. :)

    PS: Early b'day wishes to your lovely grandma! :))

    Once again hello!
    I just wanted to let you know that Lata.B and Coolgirl had also agreed upon doing the review for my piece Aam yesterday. So, if you REALLY feel like reviewing then only review it. I didn't want to sound too desperate or be selfish. :p
    Just don't take it as a compulsion at all. You're one of my best friends here and to hear from you is always a DELIGHT! :D
    So, do as your pretty heart says! :)

    It's so good at WtW indeed. You get to know others so well and allow yourself to be known among so friendly strangers!
    I can't thank you enough for the offer. If you feel like reviewing that piece then I'm on cloud nine!
    Hugs and Love! <3

    I would love to reciprocate the favour of course if you need any but only after Sep 27 (my final exam) :)

Just ate Chobani mango yogurt with chocolate chips..... YUM! And of course I’ll notify you when I post one! I’m not going to be posting as much because I’m working on my Historical Fiction, but I’m really excited to do this prompt!

    Woah! The way you painted sunlight sent warmth through me...
    It's such a serene and hopeful read! And the philosophy in the last line shines beautifully. Sun is helping the whole Earth to survive and so we all should be like sunlight in other's lives and eradicate the darkness through pure light of our soul! *o*

    The prompt by V-Rose is indeed very creative and your piece seems to meet its expectations to the fullest!

    Re: Thanks a lot dear. The only problem I'm facing with that piece (Aam) is it's way too long (1200+ words) and I don't know what I should cut.

    And I am so happy that my comments could usher a special joy to you! <3

    re: OMG THAT'S SUCH A HARD QUESTION..... in LotR, I really love Sam and Legolas, but Gandalf is always great lol. In the Hunger Games, most likely Finnick *cries* and Johanna, but the star-crossed lovers are great! And yes, I saw your fanfic but I've been preoccupied with school and really want to read it but haven't, but I'm headed over nooooow

    Re: Thanks for mentioning the prequel series! I will definitely check that out, right after I finish reading Mockingjay and your fan fiction :) I agree Peeta is really sweet and protective. I actually feel really bad for him at the end of HG due to some events I won't mention just in case they spoil the story for someone else (but I think you know what I'm talking about). I'll just call you Rohan for now, I don't know why, just seems right :)

    Replying:You do seem to say that a lot and I'm so grateful for all of your support :)

    Also how did I not see this piece until now...The message is so nice!! "It tastes like helping others."

  • mindfruit

    So sorry that I didn't see this piece until now! And goodness, this is beautiful (wow, that's the first time I've ever said "goodness"). The imagery and sensory details are amazing, especially in the line "It spreads all over you, as sweet as a thousand honeysuckles." This is really inspiring, and nice work Rohan (is it okay if I call you that?)

    Re: I LOVE THE HUNGER GAMES SERIES! Thanks so much for the recommendation, I was a bit unsure of it at first but now I can't stop reading it. Not sure who my favorite character is, but I'd say Haymitch is definitely in my top three. He's a really complex character.

    Re: Oh my, I hope your Dad has recovered well! That must’ve been so challenging and scary, I hope he didn’t suffer too much! Also, being 18 now is well meh, being 18 in a pandemic definitely doesn’t feel as freeing as it probably would pre-pandemic, but hey that’s life I guess.
