I kept a journal once. It is now filled with ideas and concepts that are either cringy or have never been put into use. I still use it, but it mostly just takes up space in the corner of my desk.

I'm not decisive enough to answer most of the questions you'd throw at me.
Coffee or Tea? Interchangeable. Sometimes I prefer tea, other times I'm obsessed with coffee.
Cat or Dog? Foxes. They're like a fluffy combination of both.
Pineapple on Pizza? Eh. I don't hate them, but I don't like them either.

The White Swan and her

FREE WRITING

The sky is blue, the birds are singing, and she made the heavy doors swing open with the slightest touch.

Old Sir and Lady Michaels watched the processions proudly atop cushioned seats of honour, holding hands affectionately. Their ballroom is furnished by the finest designers, the musicians played songs from first-rate composers. The guests danced, laughed, and ate from tables and tables of flavourful handmade treats.

A Mockery of Roundness

PROMPT: Zoom Out

My nails hurt. They're little more than stubs now, jagged things scraped and peeled into a mockery of roundness. Nails are tougher than we give credit for, filled with the kind of stubborn determination you'd see in a dehydrated wildebeest, refusing to die even as it is bitten and picked at by hungry, circling vultures.

Even the dim light of the cheap motel lamp, which illuminated so well the various piles of unclean laundry lying about, has failed to hide...

Baguette Fight

"You're an imbecile." said Santha. "An absolute imbecile. Do you want to get slapped? Cause that's how you get slapped."
 
Poised low with hands on the table, the girl locked her sight on the lad across from her, eyes fixated in a death stare.
 
"Hard." she continued.
 
The boy suddenly made a dash to the left, and Santha pounced after him like a cat after goldfish. He swerved. Dodged right and feinted. Santha missed and the standoff...
