Germany

I am a young writer living in Germany. As English is only my fourth language, I decided to join in order to improve my writing and to find great works from other writers.

Leaving Home

PROMPT: Monostich

Half of my heart is here, half of it across the ocean, and I do not know how to make it whole again.

Forever Broken

FREE WRITING

Though it seems to be a bit repetitive, it fits the chracter's thoughts because he/she lost a person they love. However, the last line seems a bit too abrupt but it could also fit as this piece seems to be...

It is good to be back

PROMPT: Returning

I feel the plane touch down. Back on the ground of my homeland- after three years. Excitement courses through my veins as the aircraft comes to a halt. I stand up and put my backpack on. An hour later I am finally outside. My eyes scan the crowd looking for a familiar face. That's when I see my uncle waving at me. Relieved, I go straight to greet him. After we exchange hugs and formalities, we put my luggage in...

Globalization vs. Protectionism

PROMPT: Your Voice: Globalization

Globalization is an unstoppable phenomenon. At least with conventional instruments such as contracts and executive orders - I'm looking at you, Trump- you won't be able to put a halt on it.  

In order to realize how interwoven our global networks are, we just need to ask ourselves a few questions: Who made this new sweatshirt that I'm wearing? Where did the battery for my Macbook come from? Where did the production of this handbag take place?

Bookworm

PROMPT: Your World in Three Senses

I breathe. In and out. The scent of old books makes me think of the small collection of some within my late grandmother's home. I look around the cramped library. There is an old green couch right underneath the window, the thin material worn out and even torn in a few places. Next to it, there are a lot of old chairs that look like they'd collapse just from being looked at too long. Above me, the small dusty chandelier...

Late Summer Evening

PROMPT: Zoom Out

Closing my eyes, I tilt my head to the side in an attempt to stop the golden rays of sunlight from blinding me any further. I feel the grass slightly tickling the skin on my back through the thin sheet I have spread out to protect my white new shirt from getting stained. The fresh breeze makes me shiver. I faintly hear the rustling of the leaves on the trees behind me. I slowly sit up and open my eyes...
