    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...

    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.
