Medieval times, to be one of the nobles, I would bring pretty dresses and soap and toothbrushes and toothpaste and a water purifier and teabags and a journal and a few pencils, and I would stay for as long as it takes me to write an accurate representation of the life of nobility or until my soap and toothpaste runs out.

I'm so hot, I glow. I give my light to all below me. A single flick of the switch is all you need to turn me on. I may look fragile but I last a lot longer than you would think. When I burn out, you'll throw me out and replace me.

Write about the moon in short simple sentences.

message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

It shines down on a us. Some see it as magical. Others only see it as an accomplishment. The man is the moon may be more than you think. He may be a woman... Maybe its a woman, a bald woman. Nonetheless, it still controls the waves.
((That sucked.... ^^^))

message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

My mother pushes me on the swing, her love and guidance sending me spiraling out of control and into the vast stretch of wispy blue. My legs, small and too fragile to be tossed into the world at such a force, dangle widly underneath me. Over and over, I am hurled like a blade that slices through the sky and draws invisible blood from the cowering clouds above me. O feathery clouds! I will catch you today. Of course, I am no mtach for the soft white plumes that could swallow me up in an instant. But here, up in this high place, they are beckoning me to come forward and dream.

Write one stanza of a poem from the point of view of someone with nervous tics :P

Children playing with shovels and trucks, burying treasure that might never be found, all enclosed in a square of wood. Building castles and tearing them down, this is a place where imagination thrives. It’s a treasure map or a construction area, outer space or the high seas. And at night, it’s a kitty’s litterbox.

Write a sentence about the ocean

TessaMarie Beard | 4 comments Endless and forever, yet always changing.

Write a letter to your 5 year old self (couple of paragraphs)

message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

Dear 5 year old self,

You don't know anything of the troubles that await you, of the heartbreaks, tears and stress. The worries that will you plague your mind in the day, and the loneliness that will settle upon you at night. The devil will play with your emotions and try to lead you into hell. But please hang in there and brace yourself. Stay strong and go your own way.

Although life will feel like death sometimes, you will be held up by the joys and miracles. You will find friends that will fuel your will to survive and pull through every long day. There will be weeks where you are so lost in another world of wonder that you feel as happy as you are now, at age five. You will discover what is important to you, and realise that you are important to others as well.

I see hope for you, so hold on when the going's tough, because good things are on the way.

~Your 15 year old self

Fire is all around me. I hold my head, trying to remember what happened. There was turbulence, and then we were falling. We hit the ground, and everything crumpled.

Charlie was very happy. Now he was able to go anywhere without anyone noticing. He could sneak into his older sister's room without her seeing and snoop in all of her stuff. It would be so much fun! Now that Charlie was invisible, he thought to himself, "I wonder if I could go rob the Bank!" He decided to ask his friends for help.
