A dreamy and realistic girl trapped and set free within the confinements and boundless imagination of her monstrous and magical mind. Careful where you step darling, lest you fall into the vibrant, glittering darkness of mine.

The Girl

FREE WRITING

    The little girl laughed carefreely with her bright red balloon, her two pigtails bouncing up and down at every movement. A small smile broke from my own face, watching her wide, sunny smile.

The Diner

PROMPT: Dialogue Dexterity

    The man sitting alone at the outdoors restaurant table was very well-dressed in the poised, elegant state of the more wealthier businessmen in San Francisco.

The Girl on the Bus

PROMPT: Omniscient Lens

    It is a peaceful afternoon. The sun is shining on the little town and birds are chirping. The trees, once bare from winter's cruelty, blossom under spring's love.
    A schoolgirl walks over to a bus stop and sits on the freshly painted bench. Despite the warmth, she is wearing a scarf and boots. She takes a book out from her backpack and begins to read.

Advice for an Adjective Addicted Author

PROMPT: Ask Michael

How do you make a story descriptive enough so that there's detail, but it's also interesting. I'm pretty good at describing scenes and characters, but I can't get the plot moving fast enough so that my audience doesn't drown from all my extra words.
