Surreal; Dada; Nonsense; Abstract; Opposing and Contradictory Poetry: Be Brave!
Prose has always appeared unresponsive and close-minded about Abstract and Surrealism when it comes to Poetry and Prose and even story lines. Take a chance and dip your toe in a world that doesn't make sense. Think the automatic cut-up writing of William S. Burroughs or the nonsensical natural whimsy of Captain Beefheart if you need inspiration. The most bizarre wins more then anything money could buy. They'll have won versatility and a key to the 'promise land'.
...thoughts held close, or at a distance, thoughts held or withheld. Your thoughts... as much as you're willing to share... in form of your choice, poetry or prose... no need to tag. I'll be there in the end to read and comment :)
Picking The Present...
(: Fiction or nonfiction, any form, with considerations on thought processes, motivations, or rationalizations. Thank you for the creativity in advance! no need to tag, I will be sure to read and respond :)
From the Read
(: Please write from the reader's perspective... any interpretation, but I'm interested in knowing more about the reader, real or imagined, intellectually, psychologically, physiologically... whether it's how the words are unparcelled or how he or she or you is settling in... or maybe the afterword... no need to tag me... I'll be here to comment. Thank you all! :)

Would you rather live the fact that the truth you're living in pierces your heart the most, or would you rather be better off with a beautiful lie - a lie that will keep you happy the most?
Are you currently searching for peace or for pleasure?
Any type of writing. Make it as long as you want. The winner is determined by if your writing gave me the most painful existential crisis ever. Make me rethink life.
The Car of Your Life
Cars are like people to me. Please write about the One that stands out in your memory-- a true story-- your own experience or one that you have heard from family or friends. Not the car of your dreams. The real thing. Good, bad, or ugly. Thank you in advance for sharing! Please tag me @Mavia :)
If you had an entire treasure box of everything you've lost, what would you search for first?
