  1. #3 of Laneybug's Creative Writing Prompts

    #3: Choose a poem you like. Take the last line and use that as the first line of your own poem. I'm not very happy with my effort here. It needs some help but here it is anyway. I chose "How Do I Love Thee" by Elizabeth Barrett Browning My Soul is Broken. Your Breath is Stilled. I shall...

  2. #7: Write a letter to the 10 year old child you were.

    #7: Write a letter to the 10 year old child you were. This is going to be fun. Let me see at ten years old I was in the fifth grade, I was living in one of the smallest towns you can imagine; Atwood, TN. They still do not have a stop light. I spent a lot of time with my Dad’s Uncle and Ant, I...

  3. Arrow ⌂ Temple of the Fayth ⌂

    Our story begins with our two heroines looking over a faded, ancient scroll. A parchment of such antiquity, that only legends contain hints of it's existence. "Gawd! Where did you find it?" An astonished Minks asks. " In that cave over there, in a ceramic pot." Raven replies. As the...

  5. "...good for the soul."

    My knees trembled slightly as I made my way up the thin gravel path, fighting across a bitterly cold cross-wind that was doing it's best to sweep me off my feet. Although it had stopped raining, overgrown bushes and branches from a line of fir trees made certain that any visitor was well and...

  6. "Bone Tired"

    Here's a short story I wrote about getting old and how quickly the world seems to change... “Bone Tired” By Jon St. Ives “Today is my 210th birthday!” I remember my grandfather saying that very well. I was only fourteen at the time and the entire family, four hundred fifty strong, was...

  7. "Brain Trust" by Jonathan St. Ives

    Well, since my story is apparently not as original as I might have thought (There's nothing new under the sun, eh?) and since it does deviate from the movie in many significant ways such as being set in the future as well as the present, I decided to post it here and see what you think. Brain...

  10. "Geneticide" by Jonathan St. Ives Part II - (Please read part one first!)

    Later that day, Joseph Bain sat down at his desk and penned a letter to his wife of 22 years. Even after a lifetime of pain and terror, it was the hardest thing he had ever done. “My Dearest Love: Twenty-two years ago you willingly gave your love to me, knowing full well the lengths to...

  12. "Spring Cleaning"

    For better or worse, this is the first story I ever wrote. It's a little fun and has some snappy dialogue. It also comes off as a kind of 'Twilight Zone" episode now that I read it again. It's about aliens coming to Earth and making us clean it up, whether we liked it or not! I wanted to talk...

  15. "What Is A Poet?"

    "What is a poet? An unhappy man who hides deep anguish in his heart, but whose lips are so formed that when the sigh and cry pass through them, it sounds like lovely music. And people flock around the poet and say: Sing again soon - that is, May new sufferings torment your soul but your lips be...

  16. 1 of 12 - track one - Help me

    Go look up "American V" - Johnny Cash. You've got twelve stories coming. I will start each one with a song from that album as my muse, and end each one with an introduction to the next song on the album. The first song is "Help Me". You can google the lyrics, but reading does not do what his voice...

  18. 10 of 12 Rose of My Heart

    This leads into Four Strong Winds. Rose heard a car door shut and she walked to the window like she did every time she had heard that sound for the last four years. She almost fainted from surprise. She had long ago given up hope that she would see what she always got up to look for. She...

  19. 11 of 12 Four Strong Winds

    This leads into "I'm free from the chain gang". I'm cashed out for the night, haha puns suck. I'm not even going to look at it after I post, so forgive any grammatical errors. Patrick struggled hard to keep the old Harley straight in the strong crosswinds. The wind felt like it was blowing...

  20. 12 of 12 I'm Free from the Chain Gang

    I had no intention of ever saying what was in the "letter", but some where along the road in the early morning hours after midnight a woman wrote a poem to a man; and it made sense. It fit; the letter the first part of it is that poem paraphrased. Love really has been good to me. I italicized the...
