I have no idea where I was going with this. Mostly left things how they were when I first jotted them down.

I have no idea what I'm actually trying to get at! Well, it started as one thing and led to another. This is, I'm warning you, unedited or anything, but the paragraph breaks came in while I was writing, so I could kind of organize my thoughts (oxy-moronic much?). Voila.

stream of conciousness! ramblings! what have you!Collapse )

No one's posting sooooo, here's one of those infamous challenges. Try it, please, or at least post something, anything.

Challenge #3
Stream of consciousness - just write whatever comes to mind without stopping to correct or structure anything. Just get out whatever you're thinking. Feel free to post it as is, or go back and structure it into a piece. Whatever you like.

Current Music:John Mayer - Split Screen Sadness

Subject:I can't wait to figure out what's wrong with me
Time:07:15 pm
No one's updated in ages, so I'm going to post. Both pieces are just little observation bits I scribbled down as they came to me, nothing spectacular. Just sort of an idea of what was going on inside my head at the time.

i've been dying to move on, is what i said
i've been dying to find something new
and i've never been so sure of anything in my life
except for days like today, when i'm not

days like today, that creep up and surprise me
make me question all the things i've never had to doubt
how is it that i'm happy where i am now
when i've always believed that there was more for me

but i'm wild and savage and i act on a whim
unpredictable, you never know what i'll do next
i'm a real loose cannon, is what they said
and i'll jump before you know that i've bent my knees

i'd love for you to love me
but i don't know why anyone would
because i've got all the things i'm starting not to like
and sometimes i don't even like me

maybe i can move on the way i planned
and pretend that i don't want to ever look back
and dear, maybe you can come along for the ride
so we can be dying to go home together

certainty's a novelty, is what she said
and now i believe it more than even i know

hello, I found this to be a rather intriguing community and (obviously) decided to join. I took a creative writing class last fall and we did some variation of "challenges", which I really liked, so I'm pretty excited. I love reading others' writing and sharing my own..

I just wrote this, so it's pretty rough and not my best and blah blah blah.. but hey, at least you have something to give you an idea of what my writing style is like... right?


well that's just.. oddCollapse )

Hi.  I'm Hae Jung - also known as "Hey hae," "hj," "Hae J," and "that Asian girl." 

But all jokes aside, I thought this community was pretty spiffy (and Ste is a pretty spiffy girl herself) so I am trying it out.  I've gotta tell you though: I'm a much bigger fan of good literature than I am a creator of it.  So, here goes.

My stuff is relatively rough and unprepared.  Feel absolutely uninhibited when it comes to giving me constructive criticism.  I'll take it well and then pummel you on a separate occasion. 

Oh, did I mention that I'm filled with bitter cynicism and caustic sarcasm?

a sonnet of sorts.Collapse )

As one of the resident mods here, I've got a couple points of notice.

Hae J brought up an important point, do we *have* to respond to challenges or can we just post anything? And after some thought, it came down to this: the point of this community is to get us writing, right? So the challenges are more for those of us who are stuck and thus not posting. They're there mostly to get people to post *something*. So if you're working on pieces on your own, then post those. That's fine.

Other point being, we are trying to expand this community. So if you know anyone who loves writing, then please ask them to join.

That's it, get posting & commenting, guys!
-Ste

Here's my go at this (because this community is too quiet for its own good).
