“Elena, you’re not eating,” Nora prodded the plate towards her as if the closer proximity would entice her to eat.
Elena glanced up at the peanut butter sandwich that had been nudged in her direction. “Sorry, I was looking at the want ads,” she replied, but made no move to pick up her sorry excuse for breakfast.
“You’ve been home for three days and you haven’t left the house,” Nora observed worriedly. “Have you called your friends or... What was that boy’s name? Dylan?”
“No, I haven’t called anyone,” Elena replied and circled a ‘help wanted’ ad for the second morning in a row. She felt oddly glad that it hadn’t been taken yet. She wasn’t very sure if she wanted a job this summer, but she could use a

The Fragility of LifeA little girl was born on a beautiful summer day,The Fragility of Life by tommyboywood
by the time that she was two she'd learned to talk and play.
The next thing mommy knew she was now a child of ten,
playing with her Barbie dolls and sometimes with her Ken.
Then came sweet sixteen, with a car and a boyfriend too,
to her the world was kind and good with each day born anew.
On her graduation day her mom and pop were there,
the thought of sending her to Yale was more than they could bear.

The doctor said the cancer had returned to haunt again,
her husband by her side, was a gambler and has-been.

I'm just another writer trying to improve I actually want to be a published author, but I wasn't sure that all the ideas I had bouncing around in my head were stories anyone would be interested in reading, so putting them on DA is sort of an experiment. It was a leap to put my work here and I'm glad I have, I've interacted with some very wonderful and helpful people because of it and I've also managed to finish an entire novel, so that is some Class A encouragement. Recently I have decided to give back to this lovely community by way of leaving very long, very crazy (in my opinion at least) feedback comments on things I like and I just can't keep quiet about how lovely it is. So, if you want someone to give you an honest impression of your work (if you're a writer, you'll get much more detail because I love reading) just drop me a line and I'll try to be as helpful as I can |

My number one favourite person on this site is my younger sister she is the sweetest person I will ever know and she's an inspiration and I'm too much of a bad influence on her because she's just as sarcastic as me. She is also an incredible artist and I am so proud of her.
