As far as the bird scene, my best advice would be to show the boy's emotions through the whole thing. Was he napping? Was the bird blurry? Did it look like a dream? Wasn't he concerned about this massive bird...

Where Do You Want to Live?

PROMPT: Poetry

I want to live in a castle that looks like a cottage
where there is a cobblestone path
leading to the heavy oak door with a large brass handle
There would be ivy growing up the side
with climbing roses intertwined
And it would be close to a brook or creek
Deep enough to cool down in, but crystal clear
and littered with sparkling, technicolor pebbles
And there would be cattails and weeping willows
growing along the bank
amidst red...

PROMPT: Fantasy Writing Competition 2015

A shriek found itself a ride on a cold nighttime wind current, blowing it far away from the lungs that expelled it.  It reached the ears of a teddy bear that flanked a sleeping form, but the child did not stir.  The Bear grew and became thick and strong.  Its muscles hardened and it tensed, waiting for something to come.  It's ears twitched, listening for the tell-tale shriek.  It peeled back its leather-like lips, revealing the sickly pointed teeth of a carnivore....

I think you have a really good opportunity here to make a strong connection between real-life prejudices and these mixed-breed prejudices. This is well written and well-developed. I have a great image in my head of the kind of world...

Where Do You Want to Live?

I want to live in a castle that looks like a cottage
where there is a cobblestone path
leading to the heavy oak door with a large brass handle
There would be ivy growing up the side
with climbing roses intertwined
And it would be close to a brook or creek
Deep enough to cool down in, but crystal clear
and littered with sparkling, technicolor pebbles
And there would be cattails and weeping willows
growing along the bank
amidst red and gold and purple wildflowers
The garden would be overgrown with fruits and flowers
A wild wonderland with wrought iron benches and gates
At night we would catch fireflies and then free them
and in the morning we would sit at a circle booth and eat
toast and bacon with maple syrup
Wide wooden cupboards would hold our
hodge-podge cups and glasses
Some elegant and graceful, some stout and sturdy
In the living room there would be a stone fireplace ...

Shadows flitted back and forth across the pane, making the tree outside scrape its branches against the glass.  The child behind the Bear whimpered and began to toss uncomfortably.  The shadows collected into a gruesome shape.  Its grotesquely long arms reached through the window and seized the sill, pulling itself underneath the crack where the window frame met the window sill.  The...

The Little Brown House

Go to the little brown house on the corner of Oaklawn and Plainfield. No, not Northlawn.  Or Oakwood.  Oaklawn.  The house used to be blue, it was really cute.  If you hit Ann Street, you've gone too far.  It's the smallest house on Plainfield.  You can't miss it.  There are children running in and out of the front door, teenagers yelling on their skateboards, parents screaming for us to get out of the road.

You're welcome to come on in.  No, no! Don't knock, you'll make the dog bark and we'll never get her to shut up!  Come on in, it's almost dinner time, and we made too much again.  Hold hands, gather round.  Let's say prayers.  Did you get enough to eat?  There are still leftovers.  Here, take some home with you!

Welcome home, this is Mom, and that one's Dad.  Sorry about the mess.  We haven't had time to clean in the last three years or so.  Feel...
