Message from Writer

I came here to love, learn, laugh, and hone my skills.
I hope to return the favor to my fellow Write the Worldarians.
The pen is mightier than the sword -- especially if it's launched from an elastic band. ~Me and my awesome sister Éowyn

Read This as Your History

FREE WRITING

When I was born
All the stars looked down in their courses
Took notice
Saw greatness
Knew victory was inside of me

When I got older
I got smarter, love made me all over
Again, all over again
Took sin 
Took hell 
Threw 'em out the door

I was made to rock it like a boss
I was made for victory at all cost
I was made by God above
And God first of all
Gets all my love

I Do

FREE WRITING

    When I am
    Invincible in self-worth,
    Complete in relationship with God,
    I am ready to help show the world
    The new definition of humanity
    That Christ's work ushered in.
    I must not be silent.
    I must not be afraid.
    I must speak the truth in love 
    And exhibit God's power in boldness.

I Am

PROMPT: Self-Respect

    
    I am a child of God because when I accepted Jesus as my Saviour,  God adopted me.  I am the daughter of the One Who flung the universe into being with all the authority incumbent in His matchless words.  This is my primary source of self-respect.  It is internal; it is eternal.  What better reason do I have to hold my head high?  Jesus took my sins away; they are gone.  They are a non-issue.  I...

Spring in MN

FREE WRITING

    Winter in good old MN is no place for wussies, that's for certain.  This year has ben a doozy!  The snowbank outside my bedroom window actually rose over the sill after a winter's worth of snow and shovelling.  There was a stretch when if you went outside, you got to choose between feeling the inside of your nose begin to freeze or the inside of your mouth, the air you breathed in was so cold.  And, if you...

A hand pressed firmly against the glass.  It was a thin, feminine hand, gloved in black leather, its tense silhouette stark against the blue glow of the monitors within.

The Bible: A Book Review

PROMPT: Book Review Competition 2019

    The Bible usually isn't seen as a story -- more as a compilation of sermons or as a textbook.  But it's so much more: a bold and beautiful history of the Creator's romance with mankind.
    It begins at the very beginning with this assertion:
    "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."
    Not "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light, and I can prove it...

Quick Contest

FREE WRITING

    Hey guys!  Here's the first contest I've hosted on WtW, so please pardon any mistakes. :)
    
    Your objective is to take one of your worst problems as a writer and describe it in one sentence in such a way as to make people, hopefully yourself included, laugh about it.  When you can laugh at something, you can rise above it.  (Thanks, Mom and Dad, for that nugget of wisdom.)  Here's an example that I put...
