Message from Writer

I came here to love, learn, laugh, and hone my skills.
I hope to return the favor to my fellow Write the Worldarians.
The pen is mightier than the sword -- especially if it's launched from an elastic band. ~Me and my awesome sister Éowyn

    Nothing is spookier than staying in a new, unfamiliar house all alone on a stormy night after binge-watching the Weeping Angel episodes of Dr. Who.  It's the sort of fear that makes you want to turn on all the lights in the house and in the garage, triple-deadbolt all the doors, wrap yourself in a blanket and sit in a corner.  Very debilitating. 
    I've seen my share of thunderstorms.  This one needs a new category invented...

I Love My Sister

FREE WRITING

    My sister is what is usually called special.  Now, I know what you're going to say: "Everyone's special, Dash."  Well, you're right.  Each on of us is our own special blend of special.  That's not the point right now, though; the point is that my sister is special.  A Hispanic or Asian might call her tall.  I wouldn't; my dad is 6 foot 3.  I do call her...elegant.  She's got this grace,  this poise, this indescribably beautiful face. ...

Spring in MN

FREE WRITING

    Winter in good old MN is no place for wussies, that's for certain.  This year has ben a doozy!  The snowbank outside my bedroom window actually rose over the sill after a winter's worth of snow and shovelling.  There was a stretch when if you went outside, you got to choose between feeling the inside of your nose begin to freeze or the inside of your mouth, the air you breathed in was so cold.  And, if you...

New York TImes Op-Ed from 2119

PROMPT: Genre Bender

  1.  Technology has weakened our military!  Secret sources say that during the attack on Ares Superbase on Mars, the sentries on duty at the time attempted to respond to the as yet unidentified attackers with security drones instead of physical force, despite the close range (three meters) of their opponents.  XYZ News has released footage of two soldiers being anihilated as they attempted to activate air-to-air combat drones in a desperate bid to halt a ground-based attack.  Apparently these city boys need to...

I Don't Conform

PROMPT: Flash Fiction Competition 2019

    My back is literally against the wall, and while I can't see the monsters, I can hear them coming.
    But I have never conformed.
    
I will die as I have lived: daringly different.  I begin to praise my God for His goodness in my life.
    A gray blur explodes into my chest.  Teeth and claws pierce me.  I scream --
    And awaken in my own bed!  I laugh with relief.  Why?  My greatest...

Read This as Your History

FREE WRITING

When I was born
All the stars looked down in their courses
Took notice
Saw greatness
Knew victory was inside of me

When I got older
I got smarter, love made me all over
Again, all over again
Took sin 
Took hell 
Threw 'em out the door

I was made to rock it like a boss
I was made for victory at all cost
I was made by God above
And God first of all
Gets all my love

I Do

FREE WRITING

    When I am
    Invincible in self-worth,
    Complete in relationship with God,
    I am ready to help show the world
    The new definition of humanity
    That Christ's work ushered in.
    I must not be silent.
    I must not be afraid.
    I must speak the truth in love 
    And exhibit God's power in boldness.
