Do people actually read these?

Well, anyway, hey. Whimsy here. Just a military brat that, like many, enjoys fiction a little too much.

Changing a View on Change

PROMPT: Personal Essay Competition: Making Change 2018

    My mind stuttered to a halt, then clunked into overdrive as I struggled to process what I had just been told. It was happening again. In the next few months, the world I had been building for the past three and a half years would crumble into little tiny pieces.
             
    I had always been upset by my dynamic environment. Because I was part of a military family, every few years I would have to pack up my life and...

PROMPT: Personal Essay Competition: Making Change 2018

    As a child, I had been upset by my dynamic environment. It seemed every time I became accustomed to a new place, I was dragged somewhere else. I went from bustling crowds to rustling trees. Then I went from a climate so dry and cold my hands would bleed to a climate so humid and hot I felt I was constantly drowning. Wherever I was going, I knew I’d go from being surrounded by a group of friends to being...

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2018

The world is being led astray
As media does their dance
All is lost to shades of gray
Yet we are forced to take a stance
 
I want to make a choice
But which way to turn?
I want to use my voice
But I’ll be subject to spurn
 
We are sheep caught in the middle
Of a battle we cannot understand
Led further from the truth, little by little
As deceptions get out of hand
 
But...

I Don't Know Much About Myself

PROMPT: The Unknown

    I don’t know much about myself.
            
    I’ve spent every minute of every day I’ve been on this earth with myself. Yet when I really think about it, I know as much about myself as I would a stranger. What do I enjoy? What are my ambitions? What do I want- really want- from life?
             
    They say to just be yourself. How do you do that when you don’t know who “yourself” is?
             
    They say to shoot...

Charmed: A Cheesy (Love?) Story

FREE WRITING

    I'm under his wonderful light, and it is glorious. But with that comes a horrible sense of dread, because I know he'll have to leave, and I'll be left in the dark again.

    Being with Eli is like that; he makes it seem like he is the only good thing in the world. Like he's a wool blanket in a cold room. A life raft in the middle of the ocean. With Eli around, everything else...
