Progression of a Writer; Day 27

Variety. A change in tone and perspective. Forget the subject, the object, the action. They can all be tweaked, manipulated, changed to fit. A blue sky can be calming, alarming, or simply plain. The taste of burnt toast can be frustrating, funny, or even a fond memory. I say this in order to explain the […]

Don’t Say Anything

It took Adam only a couple days to figure out he loved Iris, and only two years to take her out on a date. She was everything, plain and simple. Iris had known Adam for over two years and had never known anyone she could open up to so honestly. She trusted him, plain and simple. […]

Progression of a Writer; day 24

Friday

You wake up thirty minutes later than usual. It’s Friday, life is good, and the morning is here! The dishes in the sink aren’t a hassle to clean, their chatter as they are washed and stacked mingle together with the songs of sparrows outside the window. They seem ever excited for the new day and […]

Catching Inspiration

This is not my language. I write words, and my heart aches for their blindness, their ineptitude. Foolishly I have gone on a journey without lantern or map. Selfishly I seek significance in the darkness, reaching out for tendrils, a line to grasp onto, a hook to draw me to the surface. But I am them […]
