House in the Woods

PROMPT: In the House

The Boy and the Journal

PROMPT: The Art of Specificity

1) The boy picked up the journal and read it.

2) The young boy picked up the old journal from one of the many dusty boxes scattered around the attic. He began to page through the book, reading the faded writing carefully by the light of the moon streaming through the far window in order to uncover the secrets of the past.
