PROMPT: Quartet


Consurgia

She lived, content if not happy, dwelling in her corner of the universe. She loved, quietly and fiercely, keeping it to herself.

She died, silently.

She got back up, noticeably.


belladonna, bonny shears
She ran from home to hide underground, in more ways than one. She stole secrets, big and small, some to hoard and some to sell, and cultivated acquaintances as a horticulturist tends their plants; carefully, with distanced affection and keen calculation. And, as these things go, she...

PROMPT: All in a Name

My name is Anastasia Maren Kelly Carney, always called Tess.  

Carney; a fairly uncommon surname, my father's last name and one half of my mother's (she has a hyphen between the Kelly and the Carney - it's hell on any directory she tries to use. One time, when I was little, I said I wanted to be Kelly-Carney too. Mom tried to explain that I would be found under the K's and not the C's if I did that...

oh thank god (and assorted unfocused thoughts)

PROMPT: Open Prompt

I updated all of the apps I have in my iTunes collection today. Mindlessly clicking "update all" and reentering my username and password, since most of them are still registered under an old apple ID. I stopped and looked at all of the apps - puzzle games, reminder apps, apps for organization, for ordering food, simple games. I thought about the endless articles bemoaning the digital era and us digital natives - so sad, faces always in a screen, when...

Olinda

PROMPT: Invisible Cities

Vivified Cities - Olinda

Olinda is old. Theoretically, there was a time when it did not exist, but privately many people, particularly the residents themselves, doubt that such a time existed. Always there, decaying. The houses crumble, the streets and sidewalks crack, the trees that were planted in a feeble beautification initiative wither in the hard-packed soil. It is not possible to find a “border” for at the edges Olinda fades to nothing.

Olinda is young. In the crumbling houses,...

PROMPT: Fantasy Writing Competition 2015

When you wake, only the most charitable would consider it to be morning.

There is not even a shred of sunlight to be found when you open your eyes, but the clattering and screeching continues. You don't want to be awake, but here you are, you guess.

You feel your way to the door, stubbing your feet on the stone threshold and feeling beads smack you in the eyes. There's no light in your outer rooms either, which means it...
