February Competitions! #feb 4 DAYS LEFT!


    Although I have only been on here about a month, I have definitely seen an improvement in my work, and I feel much more solid now in my place as a writer. I'm very grateful to everyone on Write the World who has encouraged me and reviewed my work.
    In return, I would like to do a contest like many of the fascinating competitions I've seen around here (although I have not taken part in any)....

A German family came over centuries ago, hoping for a new life in a New World.
One of the men married a Delaware princess.

An English family came as well, and one day these two families would join through a marriage.

The Future

PROMPT: Writing Resolutions 2020

I intend to connect more with other writers and get feedback on my work. I rarely discuss my projects with other people (especially not strangers) and I believe it would improve my work a great deal.

I hope to begin a novel, perhaps. I am not exceedingly into writing (compared to everyone else on here); I only really do it as a side thing and for school, but I think that writing a longer work would help me...

Like Earth

PROMPT: One Home

Like Earth, we change

Like the mountains crumbling, we fall apart
Like the howling wolves, we cry out in pain

To die will be an awfully big adventure

This is the way adventures begin
