Setting of a Story

I'm sitting on a hard wooden chair in the middle of the room. The room is dark with no light, empty and sad, no one here but me. A single window looks out into the woods, dark and foggy. A cold breeze comes from the cracked door and snow blows in. There's a smell of death upon me, there's a cloud of darkness coming over me.

Why I Write

I write because it lets me be in my own world, and have no rules and can write anything that comes to my mind. I write because I feel like I'm in it and can change anything I want and delete things I don't want. I can use my imagination to create stories people will enjoy and love to read. I write because no one can tell me what not to do.

Story

One day Jamie was walking through the park and as he was walking he felt as if someone was watching him. He tried to take his mind off of it and started to jog. As he was jogging he saw someone hidden in the shadows. Jamie starts to sprint faster and faster and as a shadow casts over him ;he turns around, but saw no one and nothing is there but a squirrel. As he sighs in relief he hears foot steps, one step after the other after the other he listens to it silently. Jamie gets up and starts tiptoeing towards his bike; as he’s unlocking his bike he hears something. A little screech like a swing, swinging back and fourth slowly. He doesn’t turn, too afraid to see what it or who it might be. Jamie gets onto his bike and starts peddling slowly, but starts going faster and faster by the minute cause of a shriek he heard, a silent yet eerie noise.

Comments

When I was reading this I can picture this in my mind, how sad and depressing it is it's not a bad thing). I like the way you use descriptive words to describe the feeling of the story.

 I like how you remember your dreams and can write it down, because I can’t remember any of my dreams. I think you should keep a dream journal and write down as many dreams as you can remember and one day create a book about one of them. These dreams/stories are very interesting

The One Word That Ruined My Life Forever

       Carla had a best friend at Summer Camp, that she would always tell secrets to. One day her best friend, Mary, asked what was her password to her Facebook account. They went to their secret hideout and Carla told Mary her password, and Mary told Carla hers. What Carla didn't know, is that Mary saw Carla with her ex and she got really upset and was planning to ruin her relationship and her life.
      When Carla logged on a few days after she told Mary her password, she (Carla) wasn't able to log on,  so she went on her other friends account. Carla went to her profile to see if anything was wrong, and she found a nude picture of her and an older girl together. She knew her life was over and with her relationship with Joe. From then on her life was different, no one talked to her, everyone laughed and talked behind her back, even tho she knew they were. Carla regrets telling Mary her password now, and will never make that mistake again.
      After the school year ended she moved to Minnesota and made a new friend named Kayla. They would always hangout every weekend and have basketball practice together. But she still is afraid to trust people with her secrets, which Kayla understands. A year after she met Kayla she is starting to trust people again, and tells Kayla why she has trust issues. What Carla found out is that just cause one best friend hurt you, doesn't mean someone else will. Carla and Kayla grew to become great friends and went to the same collage and became room mates.
