I've always loved stories. I love how honest writing is. You really can't hide. Words reveal more than you even realize. It's a risk to put your writing out there, especially in public forums like this, but it's vital if you wish to improve.

Message from Writer

Just to prevent confusion: my name is Eliza DuBose. I write under my sister's name so that her dream of seeing her name on published writing will be realised.

The Towel Issue

FREE WRITING

In boarding school, there are several rules which you are asked to follow. Don't leave your room after 11:00 pm, check in at the faculty desk between 7:00 and 8:00, don't leave your belongings in the hall, and, most importantly, don't walk around in your towel after a shower. This last one is something that is brought up by the male faculty every year. "Please put your clothes on after you shower and before you leave the bathroom," one male teacher requested, "If...

My Secret, 
    I don't know when I started liking you. It must have been somewhere in between scrabble letters mixed in forgotten libraries and comforting you amongst evergreen branches. Somewhere in between dorm room conversations and raucous coffee cups.  All I know is every time you kiss my cheek I have to fight the urge to pull you back in to kiss my lips. Every time we hug I have to quickly plunge my hands into my pockets because if I don't they might...

Outside of the Classroom: intimate lessons I learned this Academic year

10. Poor time management will not only lead to a sense of being overwhelmed, but it will also negatively affect your mental health

9. Sometimes serendipity pays off

8. Never assume that you deserve something just because you worked hard in the past, success is a constant effort

7.  If you're unsure of the value something you are doing try stepping away and looking at what you've managed to achieve, if you're proud of it then it's probably still worth it

6.  Your sense...

To Be a Good Person

FREE WRITING

I was walking to the bus stop in Worms, Germany, when I saw him. I'd been let out of school early and were headed home for a stress-free afternoon. I saw him almost right way. He wasn't hard to miss, I suppose. He was wearing a bright yellow jacket with the word 'Blind' stamped across the back with the white walking stick and dark glasses to attest to the garment's statement. His steps were slow and, it looked to me,...

The Meaning of a Bookshelf

PROMPT: Library Magic

Thursdays were dad's day. It was his one day a week that he was allowed to spend the evening with us, my sister and me. My sister and I loved Thursdays. That's when we headed to the library.
    The library a big building with an impressive atrium that seems to hold up the entire sky with its glass ceiling. It's the one place in the entire building in which sound is allowed. It is here that the laughter inspired by paper...
