I write on my laptop, I write on my books, I write on my hands. Best of all, I write in my head. Constantly. I'm never not writing. What do you think dreams are? Your brain writing its own stories while you are sleeping.

Thanks For Your Concern

PROMPT: Talking to “You”

You tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about. Maybe I don’t, but who said it was up to you to burst my bubble? I want to believe I can do anything, I want to believe I can make my own decisions. You look almost pitying as you claim dreams don’t come true for the likes of us. Maybe your dreams didn’t come true, maybe deep down you wish you had taken a chance. I’m sorry you didn’t get...

The Greatest Power

FREE WRITING

What's So Funny?

FREE WRITING

Laughter. Sharp, clear and utterly uncontrollable. It booms from somewhere behind me, ringing and echoing around my head. With each new wave my composure fractures. With each agonizingly loud bark, small delicate cracks spread at sail pace, I can almost see them creeping up and around me. Another roll of laughter, the cracks spread faster, filled with a purpose to make me snap, threatening to break my calm facade. Too Loud. Too Loud. My fingers grip the seat, I close...

Dear Mom and Dad,

FREE WRITING

I'd say look at the words you used in some lines and see if you can find words that better fit or convey the message more effectively. 'For the life you choose to save' as an example, do you mean...
