I'm in 11th grade and I've been writing novel-style since elementary school. I enjoy melancholy works of fiction that show a character's confliction or inner torment (especially if it's in the form of anime/video games).
I do what I love:
I write.

Message from Writer

Why am I here? And no, I'm not simply questioning my place in the universe (I do that enough as it is). I mean, why am I *here*, on this website? I hope it's because I want to experience a community of writers, or because I want to grow. I hope it's not because of the followers, or the likes that show up in the form of stars. I'm afraid of losing myself amidst that starry sky. I write to tell a story. I write to express my feelings. I write to let my creativity flow. I write for myself, and I'm afraid that being *here* will pressure me into writing for others' approval. I just want to be free. I just want to write free. So, here's to hoping I won't be swallowed up by a desire to prove myself. Here's to hoping I'll continue to write free.

Scars of Hippolyta #TitleGenerator

FREE WRITING

    "Karen Hippolyta Summers. It is very nice to meet you all." The new girl announced her name and I peered over my book at the sound of her middle name: Hippolyta. My eyes quickly skimmed the open pages of the book open in my hands. Hippolyta. Hippolyta. Hippolyta. She was everywhere. But that was only fitting, as I was reading a book on Greek mythology. Hippolyta: daughter of Ares, Queen of the Amazons.
    I looked up just in...

The Girl with the Flower Crown: Angel (pt. 1)

FREE WRITING

    I don't know exactly what it was about her that caught my eye, but it was certainly something special. The girl with the flower crown was like a flower herself; like many flowers, in fact, all woven together in perfect harmony, just like the braided diadem that gently rested atop her ashen hair, whose shoulder-length waves always reminded me of ruffled carnation petals. The way she would look down whenever she passed anyone so as to shyly avoid...

Will

FREE WRITING

    The dagger is in my hand. And I can bring it down. I can bring it down so easily. Right into her chest. Right through her heart. It would be so easy. My hands are trembling as I attempt to tighten my grip on the blade. I can't. I can't. I can't.
    But I know, in the end, I will. I will, won't I?
    She looks so peaceful lying on the cold, metal slab....

I Am a Bundle of Contradictions #IAmPoem

FREE WRITING

I am a bundle of contradictions, weaving in and out of myself in an attempt to create the perfect tapestry but end with nothing but a bundle of knots.
I wonder what people who I don't think about think about me, and even though I know they don't care, I also know they do.
I hear their expectations, judgements, pressures, pounding at the inside of my mind from all sides, trying to escape, and even though I want them gone,...

One Last Time: PROLOGUE #booksandbeacheswritingcontest

Prologue
        
Luke

“Tell me what King Aaron is planning.”
    The voice that echoes in my ears is emotionless, and I almost cannot tell who is speaking. Almost. The woman in front of me simply shakes her head, eyes filled with determination. I sigh. These ones are always the most tedious to take care of. That is what I want to think. I take a good look at the person chained to the floor. She is King Aaron’s...

Garden of Words

PROMPT: Why I Write

    I write for my garden.
    My garden is separated into sections, one for each little universe. In the center of each section is a magnificent tree. Each tree has different words carved into it, whether it be a specific character trait, a desired scene or plot twist, a unique world, a theme, or simply a word. Sometimes I have to climb up the branches to get higher and higher up because I know if I only...

One Last Time: CHAPTER 19

FREE WRITING

Chapter 19

        Luke

I do not respond—nor react using facial expressions—to the news I just heard, despite the words echoing in my head causing unwanted concern and guilt. My father summoned me only ten minutes ago for a sudden war council. The announcement he made stunned us all: King Aaron of Avens had been arrested for treason, usurped by one of their most powerful and influential generals, Mira Abarca. I believe she is the one Aaron said planned...
