The Village Beneath the Sun

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition 2020

Chapter One
    The deep chime of the bell atop the tower began to sound, ding ding ding, informing the town of my arrival. I released my grip on the rugged rope, hanging heavy from the ceiling, and twisted into a knot at the bottom. The sun cast into the tower from a puny window sitting comfortably within the wall, scattering light over the dank bricks that lay before me. I came on a good day; the air was warm and...

My Body, My Choice

PROMPT: Op-Ed Competition 2020

After the legalization of abortion by the Supreme Court in 1973, the subject has become a widespread debate.
