Reflection

PROMPT: On the Last Day of the World

Flames and destruction, the culmination of pain and suffering reflecting in my eyes,
I'd be lost in reflection, trapped in the mirror maze of my past, wandering in memory.

Distance

PROMPT: The Art of Specificity

Draft 1: Trust was always a sensitive subject -almost taboo- to her. She kept many things closed, namely her eyes, mouth, mind. It was safer that way.

Draft 2: The years of emotional scarring, tedium and exhaustion had transformed trust into a recipient of her derision. This subconscious understanding provoked her closed off nature, which resided in her eyes, mouth, and mind. Distance. She only needed distance. It was safer that way.

Draft 3: Friends lost, heart broken, emotions laden...

The Bite of Fall

FREE WRITING

    It's hard to know when the pain will fade, when the cuts will scar, when the tears will dry... because we're afraid that if we're wrong, then what fate will befall us? If we take one wrong step, if we turn left when right was indeed right...
    And it's times like these that grip me, as the cold slips past my skin, sending me hiding under covers from its icy fingers that gingerly pinch at my cheeks. And it's the...

The Man in the Mirror

PROMPT: Turned to Stone

    An odd silence filled the empty house as the man stared himself in the mirror. He lived in isolation, which he had strove to do for years. Running a comb through his graying hair, he suddenly froze, his eyes locked before him in horror. A dark hand reached out from the thick glass, wrapping it's pointed fingers around his slender throat. The hand gave a light squeeze, earning a small squeak from the man, and then retracted, pulling...

Nightmares

PROMPT: Lyrics Unsung

"They're coming creeping from the corner and all I know is that I don't feel safe. I feel the tapping on my shoulder, I turn around in an alarming state, But am I losing my mind? I really think so. Not a creature in sight. But, what you don't know, Is that my breathing gets faster and so does my heartbeat. I wish this was over, I wish that this was a dream but - I created a monster, a...

Pink Chair

PROMPT: I Remember

I remember sitting in papa's small, coffee-bean-brown farmhouse. I remember the family around me, staring at me expectantly. I also remember plunging my tiny toddler-sized hand into a small concrete stepping stone, decorated it, and presented it to my father. I remember papa's cat, kitty, who I always tried to chase down, the same cat who lives with us today. I don't remember being at the hospital, crying to see papa as he lied in his bed, as my father,...

Bismarck Cake

PROMPT: Unbelievable Food

I remember from childhood birthdays and celebrations a sweet, fresh cake that my family would clamor around the table to taste. We called it a Bismarck cake. Not named after the place, but after the sweet, sugary, jelly filled donuts we would purchase in bakeries.

So I suppose it's time to explain how one prepares this fruity dessert.

First, choose a base of cake. It's really up to you what kind of cake you prefer for this. A white cake,...
