    Grandmother Weaver

    "Grandmother, why do you talk to yourself?" The old woman's eyes drank in the small form of the youth. "To keep them away child." Curious innocence stared back at her "Who's them?" A feigned surprise stretched some of the wrinkles that marked the elder's face. "The sheep of...

    When I am trying to write,

    I think the best way to improve your writing

    skills is to read. Read as many books as possible and you will notice your mind is able to put things into words in new and interesting ways. The more literary influences you have, the more interesting your writing will be. I've noticed this is true of myself anyway.

    My Throat Ties Knots Around Itself And I Can't Say A Word.

    When I speak of something important, every sound trips over itself until my sentences turn into a blended mass of sharp, confused, jutting, distressed syllables. Equally, when I write, my fingers just stumble around, feeling keys and paper and pen for some hint of the right words...

    Death And Bridges

    Micheal closed his eyes took a deep breath, and jumped. He wasn't afraid of falling, he was only afraid of what would happen next. What if this didn't work? He didn't want to live the rest of his life in a hospital bed. He knew it was stupid to kill himself over simple problems...

    No Passion

    Without passion, heart, and soul writing is nothing more than words on a blank screen. No feeling, no meaning, and no thought to be understood.  I have lost the spark.
