I am a 14-year-old writer who is less innocent than people normally believe. I love to write short stories for children, and I share all of my stories with my friends.

Message from Writer

I almost won the spelling bee, and my dad is a college English teacher, so I am very good at spelling and grammar. Whenever my friends need something proofread, I almost always find something, and then the piece is much better. I love to proofread, so whoever needs help, send it my way!

The Five Ways I Respect Myself

PROMPT: Self-Respect

1)
I need to keep myself happy. No matter what happens, I must stay positive.

2)
I need to do what I love to do: Acting. If I don't enjoy acting anymore, I know that something is wrong, and I need to change it.

3)
I need to stay healthy. I have to exercise and eat somewhat healthy, or I will never respect myself completely.

4)
I need to let myself make mistakes. If I do something wrong, and I...

What is "Everyone?"

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

Everyone says that what people say matters,
and cares what everyone thinks.
Everyone writes things that are so serious,
because that’s what everyone likes.
Everyone knows that you are in the wrong,
and what you say to them matters.
Everyone has “such delicate feelings,”
or they say you aren’t right.
Everyone eats too much or too little,
there’s never an in-between.
Everyone cares about your grades,
and when they get in your personal life,
and you get mad (naturally),
they...

What A Little Brother Should Be Like

PROMPT: Love in Words

When I look at your face, I want to hug you and keep you close to me always. When you say kind things to me after I am feeling sad, I feel better. You are the best brother a girl could ask for, and I am so lucky to have you in my life. I love you so so so much.

An Elevator Story

PROMPT: Tiny Love Story

I never thought I would meet the love of my life in an elevator. One day, I was stuck in an elevator with a man with blue hair. I asked his name, and we talked for hours (At least, that's how it seemed). When we were let out, the firefighters said we had been in there for ten minutes. I got his number. We went out on a few dates, laughed, made cookies, enjoyed each other's company. We have been...

Protect the Peace!

PROMPT: The Peace of Wild Things

The trees, the plants. They're so beautiful.
The deer, the ants. They're interesting.
The leaves, the flowers. They're so pretty.
The delicate dragonfly slowly buzzes past.
It's so beautiful.
But what is beautiful?
What is peaceful?
The machines, taking over.
Is that peaceful?
The robots overpowering the humans.
Is that beautiful?
Why are we so ignorant
to what's going on?
Yes, we can relax
Yes, we can just sit here
While our world as we know it is slowly passing ...

I am from...

PROMPT: Where I'm From

I am from
Books, soft as silk
From butterfly milk
From music, the trees
The piano keys
I am a ladybug
Flying high
And a slight tug
From the wings of the sky
I am from love
Bringing me home
I am a shove
Of a clover comb.
I am from
Cute little bats
in the night sky
And from ballet flats
and one little tie
and a little tea, chai
I'm from roses,
and from the sea,
but most...

The Heat

PROMPT: Impermanence

Changing, changing, hate
That heat, that summer heat, push
Away from the earth.
