How come when you need something the most- that's the time when you have to fight the hardest to receive it?


As I'm sitting here, in this box-shaped room, staring at my prey three feet away from me, I am anxious. This child, an innocent child, will die. She is nothing to me, nothing at all. When she wakes, only then will she notice my presence. She is sleeping calmly, probably dreaming sweet childish fantasies of blue skies and purple unicorns flying to see a magical princess. Little does she know that in a few short hours her rosey red complexion will fade away to meet a dull white color. Little does she know that the curls that surround her face will fade and cover a life-less dull face. Little does she know of her radiant blue eyes fading with the sunset. Unlike the sun, her eyes will never surface again.

~Little does she know of the monster I am~

This was written for my creative writing class. Let's just say the teacher was a little worred.

Yeah totally ... I see what you mean. Like that the circumstance shouldn't be the thing pushing the characters along, the characters should be interesting enough that they kind of pull everything forward, right? I agree with that. I guess we were kind of talking about different things :)

I wasn't saying anything wrong about the one paragraph format. By meaningful characters I mean characters that push the idea along, ones that aren't shoved along by the plot.

I agree with you, but I want to point out that paragraph-long vignettes that work to just capture a mood can be quite powerful. I wouldn't box 'good writing' in quite so much if I were you. I do see what you mean about creating meaningful characters as well.

I loved the mysteriousness of this piece.  The monster is hinted at subtly, but not fully explained.  I'm leaning towards vampire, though.  

Brilliant work!  5/5!

I quite like this article and it caught my attention almost immediately.

I recently wrote an article called, "Artemis James and the Foxwirth Curse". I would appreciate it if you checked it out.

Talk about being short and sweet. I, personally, would have written a longer story about a long, tragic battle and the gory ending - or not so gory. It's pretty good for only a paragraph, honestly.

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

great job! very descriptive too. You surely painted an image in my head a made great metaphors. This leaves me wanting to read more!

You have the capability to write well. Your writing works very well. The problem is what you're writing about. It seems to just be about capturing a mood, with no point or purpose. Be original, come up with characters that are diverse and opinionated. Writing well is great, but it can only go so far if there isn't a good story.

Wow, this is a bit disturbing. O.o But good too. You describe the corpse well. (That felt really weird to type.)

In a way i hope she doesn't add more. It probably would be better that way. It allows the readers minds to think what they want to think. :)
