PROMPT: Geography of Home

I love the room where the cat stretches out lazily on the carpet in a pool of sunshine. I love the room where I can spy on my neighbor shoveling snow from his driveway. I love the room where I can sit quietly and listen to all of the other family noises in the house. I love the room where my artwork is hung. I love the room with the old cuckoo clock that everyone forgets to reset. I love...

PROMPT: New Year Competition 2015

    Beep! Beep! Beep! My harsh alarm clock woke me up with the same shocking blast every morning. It was like waking up to a bucket of ice water dumped over my head.

So I wrote my first and only screenplay that year. After submitting it to a...
