Day 14- Another Damn Poem

Found poems are not my thing. Honestly, I find them tedious! More often than not, my found poems end up being complete trash or some weird conglomeration of pseudo-deep words thrown about as if they were pieces of confetti! Ugh! I hate these stupid things. Here's hoping I can actually write a somewhat decent one…

Day 13 – Letters

I read the Diary of Anne Frank long ago, and it was the most painful book I've ever read. I was right about Anne's age when I read them, and it pained me beyond belief to read these words from such a young girl. Today I'll be using one of her letters to her diary.…

Day 11 – Here Be Dragons

Strangely enough, I was never really a fan of dragons. I liked the idea of them, but for me they were mostly a part of books that I never read and didn't particularly care about. I know someone who loves dragons more than anything else, but other than rare encounters with her, I pretty much…

Day 10 – The White Queen

A long time ago, I had a group of very abusive friends. They were very smart people who outwardly seemed incredibly nice, but when I was alone with them things would turn violent and controlling. For a long time I couldn't tell anyone because no one would believe me. The ringleader was the class valedictorian…

Day 8 – You Wake Up

For the past year or so, I've been taking anxiety meds. These meds have been working great for me, but they give me super vivid and very memorable dreams. I've found that I can lucid dream more often then not, and it's mostly great. Last night I had the most paralyzing dream. I couldn't wake up, because every time I tried I would just wake up in another dream. I would wake up and panic! It was a rough night, and I didn't get much sleep, but it gave me an idea for a story. Yes, I know, this is a bit simular to Inception, but I promise that it's worth the read!

Day 6 -Eyes are the Window to the Soul

I think this story speaks for itself. It's a bit graphic and kinda creepy, but I've had this one bouncing around in my mind for some time. Hope you enjoy! 6. Eye Contact: Write about two people seeing each other for the first time. Windows to the Soul You see the strangest people at the…

Day Five and I’m Starving

This one is short and sweet, but is mostly inspired by my religion. I am an Eastern Orthodox Christian, and I fast. In my faith, we fast specifically from meat and dairy, as this is how Adam and Eve ate in the garden of Eden. For forty days before Christmas, we fast from meat and…
