I'm a Texan writer who's obsessed with grammar. A future lawyer. A nerd. A sister. A Christian. A rock climber. A roller skater. A singer. An actor. A not-a-dancer. A kaleidoscope of labels that are supposed to describe me.

Message from Writer

I write to move. I write to play the finely tuned instrument of the human mind. I write to cause laughter, and tears, to give worry and peace. I write so they will turn back three pages to make sure they read what they think they did. I write so they will set down my book with an awed thump, not daring to break the moment with a slam. I write so they will end the story with sadness and elation and nostalgia coursing through their veins all at once. I write to move.

FREE WRITING

Jase leaned back in his chair, feeling the subtle bounce as the hovertech adjusted to his weight.
“613-581-7675.”  He dictated to the screen that only he could see, reading the number off of the wrinkled piece of paper in his hand.  His contact lenses warmed, and he winced. Maybe he had too many programs running.
But this was important.  
“Close tabs six, nine, and fourteen.”  Homework could wait.
The tabs flashed red at the top of his screen, then...

The last story

PROMPT: Science Fiction Competition 2018

I really like this piece! Its description is beautifully simple. For the most part, your word choice is great. My only recommendation is to look at what's really necessary and what could use more development. Overall, well done!
