Chapter 224: Personal Writing

Happy Monday!

So, today, I’ll be doing something different. I’ll be sharing a piece of my own personal writing, which is something that I’ve been nervous about doing. BUT I’m mustering up my courage and posting it anyway.

Let me know what you think? I’d love to hear your opinions. xxoo

Place Detail

            The dark, haunting stage loomed over the crowd, silencing their amplified screams of excitement. They stood there as a mob of grimy shirts, ripped jeans, a multicolor rainbow of hair and tattoos. As the flood lights flashed periodically on the crowd, blinding them with light, their piercings gave off shimmers and reflections from all different body parts. From the face there were ears, gauges, industrials, eyebrows, nose studs, septum’s, snake bites and medusas. As the crowd shifted and waited, they came together in a unified organization, the band that was about to play, linked them together with drum beats and guitar solos. The ground underneath was lined with shards of broken glass, cigarette butts, and wads of gums. The barrier at the front was lined with rods of metal, the gates that separated them from their heaven. The security guards were three deep; surrounding the stage, the bodyguards of society, to control the abnormality that created this chaos. The stage then lit up in red and blue, the screams of the crowd vibrating the instruments and the band with excitement. And then the band began to play, and the crowd in a parking lot in a little town became a part of history.

  1. Great! Reminds me of a teenage music scene I never had. Very easy and fun for me to get into this brief piece. Personally, I enjoy reading bits of personal narration. A piece of writing with this much description says a lot about what might be going through the author’s mind.

    Very nicely written!

      1. You’re welcome! I remember the one live show I attended, just a year ago actually. I wasn’t with anyone but the experience was amazing. After reading this, that’s the first place my mind went to, that little lounge with the thumping drums and screaming guitar.

        Great fun.

  2. I have to jump back in here. I just realized the irony of my last post. Just after reading this, I read an article in a magazine, then wrote my own post. My post was titled the same as yours! That was really strange. I’ll link to this or you can add a pingback 🙂

    1. Haha really? That’s kinda awesome, and a little strange! But I guess great minds think alike 🙂 I don’t know how to add a pingback, so if you could link, that’d be awesome. If not, it’s all good! xxoo
