Writing Prompts: Diving for Pearls
Published on Wednesday, April 20, 2011 by You take a deep breath, letting the air fill every crevice of your lungs. Holding your breath now you dive.

He is roused from his daydream to realize that he still has the rope in his hands on the boat, by the shore, her standing in the shallow water with her hands outst...

Some disappeared, hurrying home to family or racing to the ports for a ship bound anywhere away. B...
Writers’ Dash: Second Prize
Published on Friday, February 19, 2010 by Unnamed Short Story by Almo Schumann The afternoon August sun created eddies of heat that swirled on the sidewalk. From his second-floor vantage point, leaning through the open window to try to find a hint of a fresh breeze, Nick watched the hairdos wilt and the dark evidence of sweat spread on the dress shirts below. "Birmingham," Nick muttered as he turned ...
