Two Thousand Words Project

:icontwothousandwords:

Two Thousand Words 2014:

"Two Thousand Words is an art and literature collaborative project, where artists and writers get to work together. Last round the writers went first and wrote up drafts and synopses, which the artists looked over and chose a project they wanted to create artwork for. This round however is going to be a reverse round. Meaning that now the artists are going to come up with their art first, and writers will choose something that inspires them to write an accompanying story or poem!"

4 deviants said The Alarm Clock, The Match, and The Postcard     Mrs. Nolan of room number 103 at Van Dyk Retirement Center wakes every morning at precisely eight o' clock. Once she gets out of bed she then proceeds to greet the day with some music at eight ten. She delightedly turns the radio on with her old, knobby hands and is rewarded with the majestic sound of Beethoven's 9th Symphony blaring out of the small radio's speakers for all to hear. Mrs. Nolan shuffles excitedly to the window and flings them open, yelling a joyful "Good Morning!" to the world.
    After completing this ritual Mrs. Nollan slips out of her room and dons her trusty slippers at eight fifteen. She goes down the hall as fast as she possibly can for a woman of her age yelling, "Good Morning!" to anyone who passes, or just for the fun of it. Nurses cheerily return the good morning as Mrs. Nolan goes past, for they have long given up to quiet her. Groans and rumbling remarks are heard from inside other residents' rooms as they are awaken from their

2 deviants said Now is the Summer of Our Discontent Chapter 3Alarm clocks are stupid.
My mom always sets an alarm clock in the morning.
 I told her that it was summer, and summer means you’re supposed to stay up really, really late and then sleep until it’s too hot; but she said It’s Important to Keep a Schedule and that It’s Better for My Health and that People Who Stay Up Late Have Insulin Problems and We Already Have Diabeeetus in Our Family.
Mom talks too much.
She set her alarm for really, really early in the morning. The sun wasn’t even up. Mrs. Trencher wasn’t even up.
Sally’s dad was up, and he was mowing the lawn with his shirt off – like always – and I could see all of his chest hair, so I couldn’t eat my breakfast, even though my Mom told me it is important to Get Protein to Balance Your Blood Sugar. I don’t even know what that means, but I told her that my blood sugar needed to get in line behind my stomach vomit, because my chair is exactly across from our kitche

hey fellow The Writers Meow members I finished the first part of my fiction series Symphony of Lute here is the overview you can get it on amazon.com or thecopia.com those are the easiest downloads THANKS! 

The City of Lute faces its toughest time when their fearless ruler King Kendrick has an untimely death. His successor is his son Tabor although he does not have the experience or the heart that his father did, young Tabor takes the throne. Realizing that he cannot live up to his father’s name Tabor slips into a deep depression wishing he had King Kendrick’s guidance. A young girl, Leah from Lute has a special gift that she keeps hidden. A songstress like no other Leah has the ability to bellow out heart melting vocals that literally uplift nature. Whether she is singing to a lonely seed under a pile of dirt or performing for a forest Leah’s gifted voice makes flowers bloom, trees grow, grass sway, and revive dwindling pedals.

King Tabor and Leah path’s cross and Tabor uses his royal standing to force Leah into performing resurrection acts for him. He is willing to threaten, abuse, and even kill to get what he wants. Tabor counts on his top Lute soldier, Lex, to assist him however his goodwill may have another path for him.

Yes, yes it was meant for advanced critique. It's supposed to be a published book when everything is done. I can't show everything.
