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.

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.
