Sprint (A Poem by Anya)

I sprint
Huffing
Puffing
Waiting
To
Reach the Finish Line
I don’t
Look
At anyone
Else
I
Focus
On my
Own Self
Since my
Only competition is me
So
I race forward
Trying very hard
And I
Fortunately
Win


Hey y’all! Did ya like my poem? I’m so sorry that I haven’t been posting in TWW for that long. I have exams to focus on. I’ll definitely never forget being added into TWW and I’ll post here for sure, just not so regularly.

An Update and an Apology

Hey, you needn’t point out the horrible quality of the featured image.

Hello, Mukta here, and I doubt that you knew I existed. Yep, I haven’t been active in TWW for quite a bit, so as a word of thanks to all the readers, I’d like you to know that I deeply appreciate you for choosing to stop by here once in a while. To all the writers, thank you so much for all your contribution! The blog has been coming by really well, if not extraordinarily well, and I’m so glad at all the amazing content we’re recieving!

Today, I’m not going to be posting about writing, but am going to tell you of some blog updates that may prove themselves useful.

Before that, I would like to apologize for the procrastination that’s been up. The TWW magazine, whose name has been set as InkCraft, is most likely to be released in the third or fourth week of June, and the poll for the design will be put up shortly before.

Now for some things you may find of more importance.


Change of Menu Format

You may have noticed the new layout of the Primary Menu in an attempt to make it easier to navigate through. This also involves the addition of certain rather necessary pages that you will further get notice of.

It consists of two essential features, For You and For TWW (The Writing Writers), under which the intended audience will find some handy pages. TWW members may not find all the for you features unhelpful, but if you are not a member of the team, I am sorry to say that you will not find any of the for TWW pages designed for your use.

New Pages

I am excited to introduce two new pages to increase the stability of TWW, Bio Submission and Admin Contact.

I have noticed many of our team looking for guidelines and a way to contact the admins, and so I have set up Admin Contact, in which you can express concerns, if any, that you may want the admins to know.

Since many of the writers also are looking for a way to submit custom bios which haven’t been taken from their blogs, Bio Submission will not fail to meet your purpose.

InkCraft

Here’s where you can help out.

To publish out magazine, we have three digital publishing options, Joomag, Issuu and Yumpu. They are all free, quality sites, and we will need help in coming to a decision on which to use. It’d do me a favor to take a look at the lot of them and tell me which one you find best.


And that is all for now. I hope to be back with some decent content, and until then, I bid you adieu.

The River Children (A Poem)

It went along the mossy creases

And bent along the cresting hills.

Tears puddled in the stagnant shallows

And cried out spinning down the falls.

Accepted boughs from fallen grace

And cast them back upon the shore.

They fought and argued

A bitter embrace.

And were washed to the ocean once more.


Please leave a review of this poem on Fictionpress!

I wrote this poem while taking a walk along a small river that has hiking trails leading from the falls.  For some reason I thought the water looked really beautiful and wanted to capture the way it moved, and then it turned into something else that I don’t really know what is happening.

Let me know what you think!!!!!

Limiting yourself to writing what you’re ‘good’ at + 5 reasons to type something new

A lot of people just write what they’re best at.

Because it’s embarrassing and not that enjoyable to write what you’re not amazing at because the words don’t flow and it’s painful to read over your work without wincing in pain.

Yeah, I know the feeling.

But that doesn’t mean you should write things you are not naturally good at. There are so many reasons trying something new is good for your writer health. Here’s 5.

You get out of your comfort zone

Getting out of your comfort zone is AWESOME because well, it just is. Why limit yourself to just short stories, step out of that little zone you’ve made for yourself and take the world by storm. How can you take over the world, be successful, if you’re restricting yourself to just one country of the writing planet? No, you’ve got to try and conquer every land, every country and get a taste of everything.

You become more well-rounded

The best writers are well-rounded because they can do things ON THE SPOT, they’re prepared for so many situations and have way more bragging rights. Being well-rounded means you can enhance your writer skills and make more writer friends. Your writing will start becoming more advanced and you will be looked upon with a new respect.

You discover hidden talents

Maybe you think you suck at poetry or have just never tried it because it has no interest. And you do, and you realise it’s your new joy and dream. You are actually really good and that surprise and happiness is a feeling that I cannot describe. You also discover a whole new part to writing, you have never ventured into before – and it’s exciting to voyage there.

Your imagination & creativity widens

When trying something new, your brain is forced to work harder. It’s a challenge and you are determined to take it on. Whilst you are competing, your imagination is expanding and this means more ideas and eureka moments and an easier time when it comes to character names. You suddenly think of things you’ve never thought of before that is when your brain starts thinking in entirely new ways.

You get better at writing

As I have mentioned previously, typing something new, lets you get better at writing. And who DOESN’T want that? I mean firstly, there’s a higher chance of your books getting published and there’s the getting fat off compliments, and even getting recognised by role models.  Every writer’s goal is to improve and this is just one way you can achieve that dream.

So, where do I begin?

So those are just 5 reasons why you should write different genres, try out poetry, or just something to do with words you’ve never done before. And if you’re stuck with how to start, then The Writing Writers has got so many ideas. Write something with diverse characters, try black-out poetry, or do something even more exciting.

Well, Join The Typewriter Project.

Essentially, the project is for all word lovers. You don’t NEED to be an author, or have written a book, or have a typewriter – you just need words. I’m launching on my blog and there is still time to sign up and get your creative juices flowing. Found out how to enter, the prizes and all the information at the link above. I’ll see you there.

Cafeteria Catastrophe

“Leave me alone!”, Ava yelled. “Who said,” Carissa sneered. The older girl loomed over Ava as she tried to eat her lunch in peace. “I hate you,” Carissa hissed. Ava stood up and grabbed her plate of salad. She knew she should walk away. She took a deep breath, walked over to Carissa and tipped her plate of salad right over Carissa’s blonde curls. Carissa screamed. Everyone in the cafeteria silenced and then erupted in cheers. Ava stood proudly, until Mr Gawkers entered the cafeteria and grabbed her. He dragged the young girl off to the beating room. When would life ever be perfect?
