PROMPT: Dust Jacket

PROMPT #1: WRITER ID
  1. What is your favorite genre to write? 
Fantasy, really. I'm a fanfiction writer first and foremost, but when I do write original works, I find myself writing about things that have no real place in the real world. Reading and writing will always be my self-indulgent escape.
  1. What is your favorite genre to read? 
It depends. I like fantasy, but YA fantasy has lost a lot of its allure for me. It's either edgy for the...

Jericho and Eddie

“It’s the magic of the world, silly,” she said, looking up at him with bright blue eyes. They shone with a pale glow, luminous like the eyes of a cat in the nighttime. “Can’t you hear the song?” 

He shook his head, and Jericho stuck her tongue out. “You’re not listening,” she said primly, and let herself drop to the cool grass. She leaned back on her hands and tipped her head up to the sky. “C’mon, Eddie. Sit with...

Reckoning

FREE WRITING

The lights are blinding 
but the fear is worse. 
It will not be enough. 
I light a candle
and I let the match burn down to my fingertips. 
But the flame dies,
snuffed out
suffocated
by the dark. 

I light another. 

I’d die a thousand deaths by fire
rather than one by drowning. 
Let the flames devour me
before the waters close over my head. 
I will choke on the ash filling my lungs 
But I will be grateful. 

Because I...

Goodbye, a Novel //2//

Chapter 2: Sayonara
Annette was crouched in the shadows of the second floor hallway, having followed Viola down the crosshatching. One of the doors had light coming out from under the wood. Her target, she thought grimly. 
It was a shame, too. He had such nice ornamental plants. Part of her wished she had pocketed one of the itty-bitty succulents she had seen on the way in, perching on one of the windowsills, but she hadn’t thought to at the...

Goodbye, a Novel //1//

FREE WRITING

Chapter 1: Arrivederci
“Viola,” Fiona hissed, as she clung to the pale windowsill. “You better be in position, or so help me, I’ll—”
“Yeah, yeah,” drawled a voice into her right ear, projected with that fancy spell lattice she’d been working on for weeks. “I’m in position.” As Fiona hung, suspended, she heard the sharp clicks of her partner’s rifle setup. “Ready to take out any backup,” said Viola. 
“I’m already on the roof!” chirped Annette in her left ear....

Choose

FREE WRITING

It's time again, the worst time of year
When classes are picked- 
Futures are chosen- 
And that feeling in my gut is fear
The feeling that choice, that the choices you're only allowed to make,
Are really, truly, the entirely wrong ones to take 

My whole life, I've been chasing the smartest people in the room
(Or so it feels like)
Smart, but not smart enough for you
I'm not going to MIT or to Stanford or Cambridge-
Not when I...

PROMPT: On Courage

I had my first crush on a girl when I was eleven.
Dark hair, dark eyes, pale skin, skinny
Small lips that I wanted to kiss
Didn't know what that meant
Because I was eleven, and eleven means you don't know anything, and eleven means that anything is okay because bisexual was a word you just learned and--

When I told her, she didn't look me in the eye.
I remember embarrassment
I remember trying to forget
I remember telling...

A Commentary On Ambition, and Sacrifice

FREE WRITING

Ambition is the one defining aspect of humanity. It characterizes us, defines us, and drives us. To a lesser extent, so do love and hatred and grief—but a love of the unknown did not put man on the moon. No, it was our desire to see something done. It has always been those four abstractions that have pushed us into action.

In the pursuit of our goals, we have left pieces of ourselves behind. The innocuous, seemingly irrelevant threads disentangle...

PROMPT: Tiny Love Story

He was twitchy, awkward, and romantic in the brief spaces between breaths.

"It's so beautiful," I sang, poking at the new notebook in front of me, "Look at all those blank pages--"

"Just like you," he mumbled.

"What?" I asked, turning sharply to look at him.

"What?" he repeated, drawing the word out, his eyes darting to the left like a liar under duress. Nervous as always.

I smiled. "You're sweet," I said, and leaned into him. His put his...
