    It’s 2:23 am. I have a thousand things to do. And I can’t sleep. I spent a lot of time staring at the ceiling fan in my room, where the light that peeks in from my blinds casts a shadow that looks like an owl taking flight. My eyes are dry and itchy from staring at the fan so long. I feel lonely...

    “All the writers, poets, and the playwrights are insane,” she said, removing the pencil from between her teeth. “How else would they be able to assume a nonexistent person’s point of view to tell a nonexistent story that happened in a nonexistent place? It’s utter madness, I tell you!” s...

    I am the Spring Burner of my household. In my family's household, perched in Ohio, home of bipolar and indecisive weather, we have a tradition called the Spring Burn, where the last remnants of winter firewood are lit during the fluctuations of warm and cold weather that April, May and somet...

    Have you ever written a fiction story or passage in which there was a character? If you haven’t, I encourage you to write one; it’s a lot of fun! To everyone else that has written a passage about a character, I assume that you shuffled through ideas for what you wanted that character to be like,...

    Father was never much of a Feeler. I always felt as though the world was going to come crashing down around me if it weren’t for Dad catching everything that threatened to fall on my head. He was always the one that was standing about me when I looked up, his arms spread above my head like an o...

    “Life is a game of Poker,” he said, “and Poker isn’t always fair. Some people are born with a Royal Flush. They didn’t ask for it, a lot of times they don’t even deserve it, but they are born with a Royal Flush nonetheless. And then, some people are born with a bunch of phone numbers, no...

    Picture this: You turn the world upside-down. Shake its lunch money out, have it fall at your feet, and do whatever you want with it. What? I have no idea. That’s for you to decide. Imagine what you could do with the world’s lunch money. Maybe you buy an expensive car. Maybe you bank it, flau...

    All my life I’ve heard, “People don’t grow up overnight.” That nothing in the world can cause someone to become of age within eight, nine, ten hours. That, no matter how much someone may attempt to change their mindset, no one will beat Time and Experience when it came to being an adult. ...

    So, it’s November 5th, 2013, and Halloween is long gone, the enjoyment of my favorite holiday whipping by at storm-force speeds. I didn’t go trick-or-treating or get to dress up this year, as some issues turned up, but I still thoroughly enjoyed the Halloween spirit. Halloween is the ONE day ...

    Hey Sweetie Pie, They say to never WRITE a breakup letter, but I am not going to demoralize you by saying this in front of everyone in SCHOOL. I am NOT going to insult your intelligence with the “it’s not you, it’s me” gimmick, so I am going to give it to you plain and simple: we aren’t...

    Now’s about the time I attempt to write to myself, try to talk to me about what’s happened to my head in a feeble, ailing, failing effort to render my deep, dark, pitiful mind functional to maybe churn out one more piece of writing or drawing, or perhaps both; perhaps at the same time, to piece ...

    I touched the warmth of my face gingerly, inspecting the bluish-purple bruises under my eyes, stretching the delicate skin to see broken blood vessels highlighting the misery of my life. I looked down at the faux-marble counter and counted the makeup supplies littering the glassy surface, all produc...

    Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall, am I Even Here? Dear Zanib, I know you don’t want to hear from me at this hour, but it’s three in the morning and you need to sleep. I also know you will never listen to my voice, so I will do something I rarely do, as your reflection: I will write you a letter...

    I have a tendency to forget about events that happened in my life, things that impact me in a way that I cannot even begin to describe. I recently went to the United Kingdom to visit family and took a ride on the Eye of London, the gigantic Ferris wheel that is so often featured in postcards, or pic...

    Dear Zanib, May 17th, 2013 Now’s about that time of year I am expected to write to myself, talk to me about what happened this year – the good, the bad, and the ugly – all condensed into five paragraphs of intricately written words to express to myself how this year was somehow not what I ...
