    Hi, I'm doing a project where I have to create a story with the hero's journey structure. I'm planning on having a byronic hero. Right now I can't seem to think of any good story idea, except for the 'hero goes to find an object/treasure' - which is pretty cheesy. Can someone please help me...

    The End As We Know It

    Archer Callahan sat in the front seat of a school bus and stared out the window at the standstill traffic all around them. He sighed for what felt like the fiftieth time in ten minutes, drawing his baseball cap from his head and scratching his head before placing it back down. He glanced over...

    General writing.

    I am questioning my writing style. I find I cannot understand the subject and predicate in every sentence. I can't understand one subject and one predicate in all sentences only. I can understand after the first sentence which has a subject and a predicate fine, but after the first sentence...

    Mischief Night - Part 1

    Crisp, autumn leaves danced over the asphalt in the parking lot at West River High School. Tori Lane fiddled with the keys to her silver Oldsmobile and hugged her body as a gust of wind washed over the campus of the small New England town. She pulled the hood of her sweatshirt up to cover...

    As summer quickly approaches, we young writers have reason to celebrate.

His right ear looked mangled like it had been bitten at by an animal, just the thought of this caused rob to grip tightly onto the steering wheel. He turns...

    His advisers insisted that putting down the rebellion was the right choice. For the good of the kingdom. Yet the Tyrant stared at the decree — missing only his signature — with sleepless eyes.
