Um......hi

Over the past year, I defeated a fear of other people, learned the value of clarity and brevity, fought writer's block, and developed pride in my words.

Now I am a writer with a love for onomatopoeias and an affinity for semicolons.

I kinda want to write this now.

Child

September 8, 2018

WITH A CHARACTER DESCRIPTION
She was a mess. Her eyes, once so full of light, were now red and puffy, and blank. There had never been a human with such little emotion in their eyes.

WITH A GENERALIZATION OR STATEMENT OF FACT
Parents are not supposed to watch their children leave this world.
 
WITH A SPECIFIC MOMENT IN TIME
The room was cold and white, and a husband and wife crowded on either side of their child, the small bed not built to accommodate three people.
 
WITH DIALOGUE
"Could we have done anything else?" A heartbroken woman started into her husband's tired eyes.
He wrapped her in a hug and placed his chin on top of her head as she stared quietly sobbing into his chest. "I hope not."

WITH A PRECURSOR
This story starts with a tragedy, but I promise, if you stick with it, it will make sense by the end.
