New Direction & How to Be Human  
I made an entry today already, but I figure I want this blog to go a new direction. Maybe my Xanga will be more personal stuff, but this baby will be to showcase some of my writing.

Granted now, I'm not super great. Not publishing worthy, I mean most of these are just first drafts with a little editing here and there. So some constructive criticism could be helpful. I don't know if I'll ever go on to publishing anything, but I love writing. Maybe someday my name will be on the spine of a book :D

I'm going to share with you today the prologue for one project I've been working on called How to Be Human. Chapter one might soon follow, or another start of a project might. All depends on my mood and whether chapter one is finished by the time I decide to post again haha. I haven't read through what I have so far, besides the prologue. Mind you, this thing is MASSIVELY short.

Well, here you go :P

Prologue


I don’t want the sedative!” They pinned me down to the bed.

“Didn’t you hear me? I said I don’t want it!” Arms grope at my body. Arms trying to keep me still.

“Don’t you understand? My sister is dying! I need to get to her!”

“Your sister is dead,” a voice said.

“No she isn’t! I can save her!” My body collapses in exhaustion. A stinging pain. Calm crawling through my veins.

“Melissa, you went to her funeral. She died two months ago.”

“She… needs me…” Blackness.
