Random Scribblings #9 :: On Inspiration [or the lack thereof]

i see it

there, there!!

quick, reach, grab

it floats away,

a shapeless cloud of midnight blue, neon pink, and autumn-leaf orange,

and comes to rest on the edge of nothingness

come on, let’s try once more

jump, higher

my fingers brush against the formless blob…

lightning pain zaps through my bones

a gentle breeze caresses my face

a pleasant warmness floods my hand

pin-prickles dance across my skin.

in a distance, wind chimes tinkled and

the scent of brownies and french fries wafts through the shimmering air

and then

it disappeared


i breathe

Random Scribblings #8

Change, yes, that’s it; I need change…

A girl wearing a black, leather jacket hurried across a busy street in chilly London. Strands of her silky auburn hair had come loose from her side braid and she absentmindedly brushed them away from her eyes. She stopped at the curb, scanning the roads for an available taxi. In her right hand, she clutched a steaming hot cup of her favourite Starbucks order: White Chocolate Mocha. Leaning out to the road, she waved her free hand at an approaching cab. It zoomed passed her. She let her hand fall to her side with a huff and scuffed the pavement with the pointed toes of her black boots.

I’m sick and tired of my life; I want change. I can’t live like this anymore. My life is so plain and boring; it’s just wake up, work, sleep, repeat. Every single day! I want something exciting, something cool, and different. I want to turn heads and be amazing. I want to be the girl everyone loves and admires, not just some random, normal person people walk right past. And I’m gonna make this change is happen right now!

Finally, a taxi slowed to a stop in front of her. She stepped off the curb and pulled open the shiny black door. Sitting herself comfortably in the back seat, she reached out and slammed the door shut. Soon after, the taxi calmly rolled off.

Across the street, in a cosy café, two pairs of eyes followed the retreating figure of the taxi.

“What do you think about her?”

“She seems exciting; strong, confident, definitely a head turner.”
Hope you enjoyed that. :)

Six Word Stories // Contest


I came across an interesting contest called a “6 Word Story Contest” on another blog, Just Joy.

It sounds fun and the pictures are so intriguing so I think I’ll give it a shot. :)

Here’s how it works:

For each picture, write 6 words that you think best describes the story behind the picture. That’s all there is to it!

Picture 1:

Is this who I've unknowingly become?
Picture 2:
Love should not hurt like this
Picture 3:
Am I truly happy here? Yes...


There, all done…
