Writing Prompt Results: From March 23 Free Flow Write

He watched them from afar, but the disdain he felt for them was so closely lit in his chest he feared he would combust and light the sky with his flame. If only he had flame. If only he had anything at all with which to pay them in full the debt of the indignation they had birthed in him. How easily they had come into his world, and how easily they had slipped out, snatching away from him all hope for the future he had so diligently clawed to obtain. “Liars!” He hissed, following them closely in the cover of deep black shadow. They were nothing but a pair of liars, off again to do to others what they had done to him. He raised trembling fingers to his face and gingerly touched the angry scar that ran atop his forehead and down towards his jaw. She had given that to him, sliced him so effortlessly that one would have thought the witch was cutting through dinner meat. But it was her companion who …

March 23 Writing Prompt Results by Rick Aguirre

Hello all! I had the pleasure of reading the results of our latest writing prompt, done by Rick Aguirre. As he does not have a blog of his own (which with chops like these, I think he should consider acquiring one) I have decided to share his results for him. Enjoy! He watched them from afar, but the disdain he felt for them was so closely lit in his chest he feared he would combust and light the sky with his flame. The sounds of the city clattered on like an old jazz tune which, in another time, another place, might have been endearing but here and now only served to stoke the embers smoldering in his bowels. His gaze fell upon them like that of an owl leering through a wooded hollow as they blithely sauntered down the narrow street. Details emerged from their silhouettes as they passed a well lit storefront only to fade back into obscurity once they traveled beyond the light’s reach. Light or no he could see them. He needed no illumination to …

The Power of Songs of Praise

Hello all! I just wanted to take this moment to encourage you all with not just a song of worship, but with the powerful weapon that we have in worship through song, coming from our very lips and hearts, no matter if they are out of tune or not appreciated by those sitting next to us. Often times we allow men (to the delight of the enemy) to deter us from opening our mouths in song. What is the big deal with singing to our Heavenly Father? Well there is power in it that shifts the atmosphere. It is through song that our hearts are encouraged, that we remember what our God has done for us in the past, is presently doing and will do. It is through song that we find strength, and that the enemy is evicted from our atmosphere, for our God inhabits our praise. Ephesians 5:18-21 says, “…18And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, 19speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and …

Will You Create With Me: The Hope of Future Writing Prompts

Last year, about mid-way between starting this blog and now, I started developing Writing Prompts and Exercises. For at least the last few months I have not created a single prompt, as I have been striving to get my life in order so that I can have more time working on the blog and writing my beloved novels.  As March was reborn this 2015, I found myself asking the God of Creation, what was I supposed to do now that there were no distractions to keep me from blogging. I mean yes, the simple answer is to create blogs, but I am a person who likes to “sow” and not “throw” my seed if you get what I mean? In answer to my query, Yeshua Jesus gave me the simplest answer; “Do what you did at the beginning.” What did I do at the beginning? I allowed art to bear fruit in whatever way it saw fit, but I allowed it to do so within parameters. In short, I made a deal with myself and …
