In Defense of Pancakes

FREE WRITING

1. FLUFFY PANCAKES. That's my whole first point.

2. Waffles may be more textually palatable, but they cannot win when it comes to toppings - I mean, on a waffle there is no room for topping absorption. It'll get crushed in the mold, and you can't get a surprise blueberry like you can with pancakes. And if you try something like chocolate chips, they'll just fall pathetically into the square divots. Meanwhile, while you're making pancakes, the very nature of...

They call me a dandelion.

There was a time when each casual phrase was worth praise from my Chinese kin because “wow, your speaking is great for a foreigner!”

I used to have a world to myself, glowing with secrets in scarlet lanterns - I’d make people’s heads turn with the bright red...

The Last Chocolate Cake

FREE WRITING

The end of the world fell on Piya’s birthday.

“I want to bake a chocolate cake with you and nanna,” she had told me—doe-eyed, earnest.

"We can’t, silly. Flour and eggs have all been shipped off to Mars. Asteroid Doomsday, remember?"

The Martian colony would keep things going, not that it mattered. No one cared about the future if they weren’t going to be a part of it. Even the news networks had gone silent three days ago—Earth was a...

three AM

FREE WRITING

the kind of silence you can't imagine,
where the window grate is off because even errant moths sleep
so you can strain your eyes for stars (you see some, others are just beyond suburban light pollution)
and think about how it's
funny how neither wind nor trees make noise by themselves

you won't remember standing here in the morning,
torso half-out skinny window catching cool reprieve from your stifling bedroom

threads of 3:37 PM

PROMPT: Mid-March Grab Bag

grab bag prompt: write about what you imagine people across the world are doing at the exact time you’re writing this piece (ex: 2:35 on a Tuesday). (by almost flora kane)
 
It's 3:37 PM on a Friday and an opposite hemisphere tucks someone into bed, moonlight beaming in through a shaft in the window, a patch of their dozing head caught in the spotlight.

It's 3:37 PM on a Friday and the shadowy corners of the pub offer...
