Mad LibsA young woman named Erika loved making art, and practiced carving all day long to become the very best in all her town. But one day, she was completely stumped. She looked around her room, full of art pieces featuring mystical scarves, sci-fi landscapes of a futuristic Barcelona, and a portrait of Billy Mays that looked so real, you could start a conversation with it. But nothing inspired her. Had she really created everything there was to create? Depressed, she looked out her window, and made a wish on a nearby locket for inspiration to return to her. The next morning, she sprung out of bed, and used her skill in carving to create the most beautiful deviation depicting books flapping anyone had ever seen. That night, she shouted out the window, "Thanks, locket!"Mad Libs4 years ago in Create a Story Contest More Like This

Don’t listen to what everyone tells you. They have their own dreams and they think you’re the one to realise them. They see you’re intelligent, talented and ambitious and know you can get the hell out of that town if you want to. They’ll encourage you, but to a point. Truth: they don’t want you to leave town. They’ll settle for you not leaving the state, but their encouragement isn’t about you. It’s about keeping something good for a place that has far too little.
Talk to Greg. When you’re nineteen and sitting in a pub on the other side of the world, you’ll wish you left things differently.
Talk to people. Tell them you’re not okay. Tell them who you really are and don
Don't chase pantiesMy great-grandfather used to tell me, "Don't chase after panties because you'll only end up with a robot in your gallbladder." I never quite understood his advice until one Halloween, I was gardening with my best friend Kelsey. All of a sudden, we found an underground tunnel! It was rabid and spooky sounds came from deep within. Kelsey saw something interesting inside, jumped in, and I never saw her again.
