I love writing, thats about it.

Message from Writer

Just a Christian teen who watched a masterclass saying I need others to review my writing, so here I am eager for people to tell me everything I’m doing wrong!! (Believe it or not that isn’t sarcasm.)
Also I guess people put quotes on these so here’s mine:
“I try to create sympathy for my characters, then turn the monsters loose.”
— Stephen King
Since monster isn’t always literal and isn’t always about the thing in the story.

Lullaby

FREE WRITING

A calming hum rings faintly through the air. A mother is lulling her child to sleep. The little child squirms slowly reduce to gentle snores. The mother feels cool tears slip down her cheeks and continues to hum as the baby sleeps. Swaying lightly, with eyes closed, the woman holds her baby tenderly. The song slowly begins to break with the woman’s voice as she stifles cries. She places the infant into a white crib and holds the child’s hand...

True Adventure

FREE WRITING

What is adventure? Is it something we do or something we feel? Is it something we are afraid to be without or something we can’t fathom having? To me, adventure is the unknown, the unreachable, and the unforgettable. The unknown because an adventure must be something we can not force into repetition, the only known substance with that property that I can find is the unknown. The unreachable because adventure must be something of the imagination that is unreal and...

This Song Will Never Sound The Same

FREE WRITING

This song will never sound the same again. These chords won’t ever ring through the air resonating the same emotion again. Seize this moment. Seize how the music sounds in this moment. Play that anthem of beats over and over again any time you need to feel that way, but never, not for any reason, play it again expecting the same feeling after that time has passed. Think of the way you interpret that song as a blank page. Every...

The Anthem of Youth

FREE WRITING

If you ask anyone in my generation what they enjoy they will most certainly think of the music they fill their ears with. There is something about music that just means so much to us. No matter what genre or artist it is, its something that seems to resonate in our hearts as well as our skulls. Our parents are always telling us to take our headphones out, and our friends always giving us strange looks when we rant about...

Words are like wildfires

FREE WRITING

Words, are like wildfires. They are unstoppable and their presence can be felt from immeasurable distances. They start in your ears and spread faster than describable through your brain to your heart, to your soul. There they dance in hot intensity until extinguished by a flood of concentration. Words are the oldest form of magic, accessible to all. There are, of course, those who are more skilled than others at molding the words into universes of astonishing creations. Yet even...

Before you go by Lewis Capaldi 
   Writing is hard. Especially on days like today when words don’t wanna come to my fingertips. Especially with songs like this that are more like feelings than words. So today all I’m going to do is tell you that this song is... indescribably unalienating.

Brother (acoustic) by Kodaline
    I am someone who feels things deeply or not at all. Music that express what its like to love someone with your whole self is what gives me hope that I’m not alone in this. Other people don’t understand what it’s like to constantly try and describe the indescribable. I think as a writer and as someone who has always loved words, the thing I search for in life are the things that leave me...

Flares by the script

       This prompt is really hard for me. Music has always been a huge part of my life, in that choosing one song a day is like picking if I should get a trench coat or a leather jacket. Both are things that make me happy and feel powerful, but in very different ways. Music is like that for me, it eliminates loneliness and brings out parts of me I was previously unaware of....
