Goals for 2020

PROMPT: Writing Resolutions 2020

My writing goal: 
I want to be able to write every day. Last year, I had a book of writing prompts and I did one a day without fail- until sometime in June. Once I skipped one day, I skipped weeks. This year, I want to have perseverance in my writing, so even if I stop writing for a time, I can get back on my feet and start strong again.

World’s Awakening

FREE WRITING

I wished upon a star in the velvet sky
As the angels breathed on me
It was late winter
With spring on the horizon
And the velvet sky rippled
With warmth and light
It was late winter
And the pink of the dawn had not yet come
The sky covered all the earth
In a velvet cloak of deep blue- almost black
It was late winter
And the sky felt the world
Was about to awaken

Christmas Gifts

PROMPT: Three Gifts

1.         Give the gift of a positive attitude every day. We all have a choice as to how we behave, and people deeply appreciate when there is a person in their life who greets them with positivity. This doesn’t have to mean always being happy and looking on the bright side of everything, because that can get very irritating. Being positive can be as simple as listening to a friend when they have a problem and...

Why i Write

PROMPT: Why I Write

I write for the same reason I sing and play the violin. Writing opens doors to worlds not yet conceived, just as music transports musicians and listeners alike to another dimension and allows them to experience a sixth sense- art.

Friends

PROMPT: Lyrical Stratum

Friends
those you see everyday are just aquaitences. Until the first, “Hello, Good morning!” Is exchanged. And then you know their name and you ask about their day. And the weather. Learning about their lives and laughing as the day wears on. Suddenly you know who they are. Not just their name. Not just their face. Who they are.


Sisters
Friends you are born with. The people you can scream at. And are forced to be with. And neither of...

The Pendant, Part 1

PROMPT: Open Prompt

       Last night a boy at my high school died. He was a grade above me, and I knew his name, even though I didn’t know his face. Everyone knew of him, and everyone knew he was sick, too. Stage three brain cancer... or something. The whole story went over my head, but I go parts of it. Diagnosed last year. 
       Last Christmas he was alive. Struggling, but alive. And last Christmas, I wonder if...

Storm Girl

FREE WRITING

As the sky
turns blood red
streaked with gold and blue
as the wind whips through the grass
and shivers crawl up my back
like spiders
i step forward
step by step
into the advancing wind
which blows against me

I am a solitary girl heading towards the storm.

as I shiver with fear 
As the temperature drops
I am a girl in the storm

I walk 
over rocks and dead grass
into
The eye of the storm
looking out...
