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 had to break out the thesaurus for this one.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

PROMPT: Missing “E”

GROUP: Flash Fiction

It. This story starts with an it. No tragic loss of a guardian, no vat of conspicuous toxic fluid. Just it.

​And it was good.

​It didn't know what it was. It didn't want to know what it was. It was happy to think, to touch, to stand on this world and play a part in it.

​It was living.

​Humans didn't fancy it. This brain of ours favors a philosophy that if you don't know what it is, you shouldn't want anything to do with it. So it was always out of turn.

But that's just how it was.
