Message from Writer

I'm in the process of writing a novel which I post on here in sections.
My writing style tends to be witty (I don't know if that's the right word), descriptive, and sarcastic.

I greet criticism like a Jack-in-the-box.

"Astronomy has proven that when you wish upon a star, you're actually a few million years late. That star is dead, just like your dreams." Am I a bad person if I find this hilarious?

Stab your brother today, for tomorrow you'll gain another

Verse 1
Stab your brother today, for tomorrow you’ll gain another.
Bury your heart in seeds, that have yet to grow.
Can’t see farther than what’s right in front,
but the mind’s got a pen of its own.
Never honest, nor kind, nor happy now —but tomorrow
 
Verse 2 
2 in the afternoon, can’t recall what you ate for breakfast.
Unsure how you drove home at the end of the day.
So detached from your nose and your toes, ...

    But as I looked down at the creature pulling me through the crowd, I couldn’t help but think of Clara and Lewis and wonder if it is not us who lead them, but they who lead us. Perhaps they start right but somewhere along the way of life they get lost. And they don’t spend their life searching for the right way, but rather trying to get back to it. And I was inclined to believe that this little girl—who...

The trees stood in a gray depression dried out and beaten naked from the wind. But watching from the car, they appeared so still one could not tell the wind was present at all. I thought them rather pathetic, sitting in their own self-pity.

The Red Fence: part IV

FREE WRITING

    Sam skipped along the road trying her best to whistle a tune; she couldn’t get real high though, Daddy was still teaching her. Tony may have laughed at her ragged shoes today, but he couldn’t say a thing about her bag. This Christmas, Mama and Daddy got her a real school bag. It even had a string so she could hold it over her shoulder. All January long, she had been walking into school with a smile on her face. ...

The Red Fence: part III

FREE WRITING

    Sometimes the roars and howls were too much. They would grow and swell until there was a sudden ring of silence, so distinct it was almost its own sound. But Sam held onto her breath because it often came back, rising and falling, and rising and falling, the last one always sounding worse than the first. Sam couldn’t sleep on nights like these, and if there’s one thing she couldn’t stand, it was lying in bed doing nothing.

The Red Fence: part I

FREE WRITING

    The yellow creaking school house in Terry, Kentucky never had more than thirty kids at once, even though the limit was twenty. There were only two rooms and a bathroom in the whole building. Rumors said that Mister Lanny was thinking about moving up north. Sam remembered the day Miss Ricker found out; she made each of them do three problems on the board and Sam got an awful grade on her writing assignment. But she understood. There were four...
