Menage Monday – Week 36

This is my entry for the Menage Monday challenge at caramichaels.com

“Come on, Aurora, give it a try,” Aurora said with a playful smile. “You have to learn to fly sometime.”
“I can’t,” I said.
Her purple, shimmering wings shuffled as she placed her hands on her hips. “I’m the one in charge of training you during your transition. Maybe you just need a little inspiration.”
She blinked, and instantly we were in a parking garage. Not a human in sight.

Lessons and Outlets

Ever been so upset about something that you wanted to scream, pull out your hair, throw something against the wall, or do any other activity to funnel that rage out of you?

Of course you have. Everyone has.

Writing is definitely an emotional outlet for many, but I’ve always had unproductive experiences in the past. I would be upset and decide to start writing, scribbling furiously on the page or typing like a mad-woman on the computer. But the product that came from my efforts was always, in a word, CRAP.

Reason – Forbidden Love Blog Hop

Here is my entry for the Forbidden Love Blog Hop contest at Bullishink.com

Reason

“I smell humans,” Elena, our queen, said with a mischievous smile.

I could smell them too—unsuspecting sailors about to fall prey to our charms. My fin itched in anticipation. We waited just below the surface of the water as the oncoming rowboat slowed to a stop above our heads.

The Transformation – Faerytaleish Entry #2

This is my second entry into the Faerytaleish contest at 264 words

The Transformation

“So I guess this is goodbye,” Eliza said in as strong of a voice as she could manage. She didn’t know how much longer she could hold back the tears.

“It doesn’t have to be,” Rowland said, inching closer to her. He found her presence intoxicating and the thought of leaving her was so unbearable that it hurt to breathe.

The Color of Love – Faerytaleish Flash Fiction

I’m so excited, this is my first time entering one of the contests on the Yearning For Wonderland blog. So here is my entry at 299 words:

The Color of Love

Faye lived in a world where people could only see in black and gray. And she was the sole person who could see color. Everyone around her saw nothing but the black of evil in the hearts of others, and the gray of suspicion clouded their minds. But not her.

Welcome!

This is my brand new blog called Write for Life. You may be wondering why I’m calling it Write for Life. Two reasons… First, my desire as an author is to write stories that will illustrate God’s great love for us; love that gave us life. Second, writing has been a passion of mine for years. When I was in the third grade, I came to the realization that writing stories could be an actual career and I decided then that I was going to be a writer. Mind you, a third grader’s stories are somewhat cheesy and full of spelling errors, but cute, right? So that’s when writing became my passion and I’ve been writing ever since. And I’ll continue to write well into the future. Hence, Write for Life.
