Hi! My name is Katie. I am a sixteen years old, and I really enjoy reading and writing. When I'm not daydreaming or playing my violin, you can find me sketching, baking, wake boarding, swimming or skiing.

Message from Writer

Hi! I love reading and writing, and I can't wait to keep improving my creative writing skills! In my free time, I like to play the violin, cook, ski, wakeboard, swim, and do art projects.

The Fall of the Homo Sapien

PROMPT: Environmental Writing Competition September 2018

We exist to coexist. And as a human being, that terrifies me. Nature is transparent, while humans design around it with perfection: Smooth lines, symmetry, and equilibrium. 

Even a single step outside forces us to cope with our greatest fears. Irregularity, and in insignificant little things that existed before us, no less! That rock over there? It will undoubtedly outlive you, and every person on planet Earth. And the tree in your backyard has at least thirty years on you,...

The Flow

PROMPT: Timeless Counsel

Don't go searching for things. Be yourself, and let the opportunities come to you. If you change yourself to fit the grain, happiness will feel false, and confidence will withdraw itself. Let life wash over you like a wave; do not waste your energy on resisting it. Like water, life has a natural course, and it should be in your best interest to follow it.

Ten Thoughts

PROMPT: Your View

1. We exist to coexist. We as humans desire to dominate the world around us. Whether it is with other people, weather, or nature, we have the tendency to fight in order to gain status. In the process, we destroy.

2. We say we don't care, which is a lie. In the present day, we have taught ourselves that emotions make you weak. What we don't realize is that emotions make you human.

3. Social media hasn't replaced the sun...

Journey to Somewhere

PROMPT: TV Pilot Competition 2017

EXTERIOR- A LARGE FIELD- NIGHT

We open on an expansive moonlight field. Not a sound is heard but the whispering rustle of grass in the light summer winds. The camera pans onto the wide, dark sky. Thousands of stars shine brightly above, only overshadowed by the full moon hovering above the distant silhouette of trees.

There's a sudden disturbance in the steady rustling of the grass. We cut to a figure crashing through the field. They turn briefly, and the...

Journey to Somewhere Cast

PROMPT: Cast of Characters

Setting: Rural Indiana, 1980

Journey to Somewhere is my take on the psychological effects of loss, and how they change your life. Despite their poverty and weaknesses, the Field family was always happy. But ever since the death, it seems like they are slowly falling apart. Follow this dysfunctional group as they search for happiness, forgiveness, and success. Or will their secrets kill them first?

David Field (38)- Born and raised on a prosperous Vermont estate. He got into alcohol...

Falling

PROMPT: Why I Write

    I write because I am falling. Tumbling through darkness, grappling for something, anything, to save me. Gathering speed. Words rain down around me, just out of reach. I paw at the air, trying to reach the invisible safety. I cannot. And with a thud that echoes through the crevices of my mind, I slow. 

    I write because I am drowning. Sound liquefies in my ear, a dull roar. I am slower now, much slower. What are my words and what...
