Writing is similar to painting a picture. Once you begin, you have your five senses that you can utilize to make your story descriptive and actually put the reader inside the story.

Let your emotions flow, but make your readers feel that emotion as well.

Spaced Comfort Zones

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2017

Darkness; the place where children's nightmares play hide and seek. Every child's fear became Ruby's much-needed happy place. She found a comfort in the abyss of darkness, or what she came to know as "the basement." She would descend the pleasantly squealing stairs, then settle into her usual confined corner and begin listening to teardrops from the ever-changing sky. With other children, the ink covered walls would enclose on their miniature bodies and suffocate their confidence and happiness, but Ruby...
