Coming of Age

NOT PART OF PROMPT!!!

The Dot

I don’t think you guys understand how excited I get when I see that little yellow dot in the corner of my screen. It’s like getting a present! :) I love thinking about who sent what and why. I wonder if it’s feedback or a response to a rp. It makes my heart skip a beat. It fills me with love and hope. Then I read it, read it again, read it one more time for good measure, and then smile. Even in the middle of class. The teacher usually asks, “Julia, why are you smiling?” I laugh and answer. “Nothing.” Then everyone looks at me weird and I read it again. Just to fill my heart up.

No Dot

When I see that there’s no yellow dot, it’s like expecting to get a nintendo switch when you really just get a pair of socks. That feeling. Like you get so excited and then, it’s gone. It vanishes like a lifetime. I feel empty. Then I click it again, hoping maybe in the next second something will happen and make up for it. But nope, it’s still nothing. 

The Name

I never explained why my name is like, well… my name! I thought of all the names I could use: Willow Tree, Wolfie Lover, Strawberry’s For Life, Hi There I’m New. And then one came to me, “Alone.” Alone? Alone what? Alone person? Alone human? Alone princess? Alone ugly? Alone alone? Alone Warrior? That’s it! Alone Warrior! It sounded flowing and right. Like I deserved it. This is what it means to me: “It shows that even in times of war, hardship, and politics, we are alone. No matter how hard we try not to be, we are. I wish I knew that God was always there before I felt this way. But it’s too late for me. Too late.”

That Thumbs Up

I don't really understand the thumbs up button. Sometimes for me it magically rotates. Goes from an up, to a down. I read the story and comments again to make sure I did everything right. I look at the button again. Up. Huh? I shake my head as I always do when I’m confused. I bite my lip and then move on. Then another story. Thumbs down again? On what? Enchanted? What?! I swore it had tons of likes before! I look at the story and the comments, then then look at the button. Up. I guess I need to re-read everything huh?

Money

Ok, let’s look at the newest prompts. April fools, April fools, April fools, why isn’t there one for Easter?! Sigh… I guess I’ll have to do one without following the prompt. Again. I don’t understand why, why if you write, and writing is your passion, then why is there money? To, motivate you? To make you feel good for winning something? Maybe it’s for all the hard work into the story. I would love to earn money for writing stories. I didn’t know they had to be good ones.

The Down Arrow

I see the up and the down arrow. Obviously I’d hit the up. But why is there a down? Why do people need to get downvoted? I see lots of people protesting about it and stuff. I don’t like getting involved in drama, so I didn’t like to sign up. But I’d love to help out. I want to get rid of it as much as the person who started it. I want it to burn. And get spat on. I despise it. It makes me think of the worst thing ever. It’s like telling your best friend there ugly and nasty but you still want to be friends. You’d despise them too!

Topics

What to write about… well, can’t look at the prompts! I never look at them. It’s always the same thing, or close to it. If I was the web leader, I’d do a bunch of different topics. Like, a fantasy one, family, Christian, gay, drama. That way there’s a variety every week. And not like, city, city, city, city. It’s kind of annoying. I mean, if one catches my eye, I might read it. Or not. 

the brown eyes are also not a little thing for church ⛪️ but they don’t want them out to church ⛪️ and I ou believe that they are both in green emerald green green dress 👗 I don’t want them out to the ground and I don’t want them out of here because I don’t want him in the front and they are also not sure if he is going home 🏡 or not I guess he just did a lot of it I think I was going to do the same things and he had the same problem I think 💭 and I was going to be a little bit better I don’t want him in the bed and I then realize that I have to do that I have a wolf and run around him with my legs I don’t know if he has any other stuff but that’s ok I think 🤔 and his family are going home to go to the church ⛪️ and he will be here at all the church is a church and I think I have a church ⛪️ church church ⛪️ is the president and the house and church ⛪️ and the sun church church ⛪️ is in church and the kids will grow out and put them in church ⛪️ is there anyway we should have a little bit of oof and a little too long for the rest of the week but it is not a good idea 💡 is a little too big and a lot of fun 🤩 I think it’s ok to be president and the sun ☀️ the woods and then I walk into the sun and then I look at the sun and then we’ll talk about it again in the sun ☀️ and then I will need you and I will need see a lot to you do that I have this to work with me to the church ⛪️ I love ❤️ so I don’t know if I could get you to do this but I think I can do a little more time to get a new paragraph I think about it and it then I have to go back over there 👉🏻 and I then see you in a little bit but if you want me to go to church ⛪️ you can give it a try to do it in green emerald brown hair or if you want me to come down on the way to church I would think it would be nice to see if I can make a trip up there to get the stuff done I just want you know that if I can give it a try to do you want me a little more thing and you know I don’t know what I mean I don’t know 🤷‍♀️ and I’m so sorry for that I don’t know 🤷‍♀️

XD I’m going to leave this because it’s so much LOL! XDDDD (comment if you can count all the churches XD

This is a great summary of the high points of our writing community! Everyone has been upset about the downvoting, and someone got their stories deleted by someone had had to repost them, and I'm so glad to see someone speaking up about the things we love here!
