  2. Determined to find the tavern, the bard struggled and staggered and stumbled and swaggered about the narrow road, his lute banging haphazardly against his exposed thigh. His wife had kicked him out of the cottage again, and by God, he was going to have a skinful of mead to make up for a lousy night.

    He hobbling into the dimly space and plopped down at a corner table, mopping his brow with his floppy hat. The wench strode over with a huff and puff.

What had been done was a collection of photos brought together, held together by small fingers and shaking hands, recalling the happiest day of the deceased’s life—little Jeremy, walking him in the open field, with a chewed tennis ball and a fresh bone in his owner’s back blue jean pocket.

All he had to to was jump, let go of his world, and then he would be right back. And then… he jumped. Falling towards the ground, he tumbled for a few seconds and then PWSSSSSHHHH he let the chute go. Skydiving was a success.

  17. Determined. Undermined. Layman’s terms. I am free writing. I have wanted to do something like this for weeks, when my brain is in this sort of state. I fly out of my own state and go to a world where I can do something better. I am determined to find the state where I can eat purple sugar-paper flowers and candy skulls daily and snack on vegan treats while a lover and I touch fingertips. I used to call it a Francesca Lia Block world, from her books. I would still love to live in one.

  22. I walked into the world and made them look. I made them watch and listen, all before the words fell out of my mouth. And they listened in awe as the music flowed from my lips.

  29. Don’t worry about me, I’ll be okay. I am determined to keep my promise to you. If I weren’t, I would’ve already been long gone. Just give me one night, okay? One night to scream and pound my fists against the walls until my knuckles are as red as my jeans. One night to be selfish and let the tears flow freely onto the bed sheets. One night to be broken.

    That I didn’t realize anything else with

    By Christina Csiszar URL on 12.12.2012

  39. I was determined to write this sentence in sixty seconds. What is determination though, is it pushing through something tough? Is it trying when you know you won’t succeed? How can you define determination? Is it triumph of the human spirit?

    By Steffi on 12.12.2012

  40. To be determined is to be sure of one’s willingness to go through challenges and hurdles to get to an end goal. Being determined is a state of mind, and it requires this certainty to exist from the conception of a goal to its completion. Being determined involves emotions, not thoughts. Determination requires passion that only exists through emotions born from the desire to complete or experience something.
