The Road Less Traveled

You want to know the answers. You want to find out why this happens, or why that happens. For Andy, it's about knowing why she had to change schools, towns, friends even. Or why she was "blessed" with anxiety, with depression. Why she's always so scared of what people will think of her, and what will they do if she did something embarrassing.

AWAKEN

1884. That Year has so much in common with my faults. I’ve seen the same face fall Fifty Feet Under. I’ve watched my own drink fall into an abyss below me. I’ve always known my soul purpose and my daughter has always known my favorite time of Year. Pipelines staggering into the thick fog that falls upon the bright blue sky that once was there and not forgotten. The Grim Reaper is who I blame for whatever goes wrong here.

The Snowflake Method, Entry Two

I am really intrigued to try this method out and enter the competition as I am guilty of failing to plan most of my pieces of writing. I tend to hit upon an idea and then just run with it without stopping to think it through in detail so regardless of whether I actually write this into an actual story it will be a good exercise for me to attempt, just to get me into the habit of being more considered when I work.
