Baby Death Wish

FREE WRITING

My dad likes to say that I have a death wish. The reason? I used to do the craziest things without ever thinking about them. 

My brother is much more cautious than I am. I used to be called his "Courage" because I would always do the thing he was too scared to do. 

When I was a kid, an infant, really, I used to walk into the water. Full body submission. I would look up into the glaring sun,...

The Death Of Haventown--Prologue

FREE WRITING

instead i'm stuck here
clutching my phone
waiting for her to text back
unable to control the outcome
he'll be gone forever on thursday
i won't be there...

One Day In The Dojo

PROMPT: Sports Writing Competition 2021

You have to bow when you walk in. It's a small room, but our record is 28 people. The floor is smooth, scuffed by years of bare feet and Clorox. The only rough patches are the pieces of tape marking spots to stand. The blue foam covers every inch of the training area, although the trim is red. Sensei says that the mat could have been red, but it's an angry, harsh color. Blue is calming. I like the red...
