    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.

    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...

    When I am trying to write,

    The Forbidden Forest

    Thousands of images overflowed her dreaming mind every night of things she has never seen or touched. Her countless never-ending dreams seemed to emerge from one particular place, a forest. The place seemed familiar and magical, but it didn’t depict any form of safety; it was...

    "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...

    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.
