Fire at Will (Assignment Version)
 
 
    The social psychology of this century reveals a major lesson: often it is not so much the kind of person a man is as the kind of situation in which he finds himself that determines how he will act.
―Stanley Milgram, Obedience to Authority
 
 
I stand at ease on a wide asphalt road in line with everyone else in Baker platoon—three sergeants, and ten privates, including myself—a hundred metres or so outside a town somewhere over a hundred kilometres north-east of the capital, a place to the far north of my hometown.
    To our left, a field of greenish-yellow grass about knee-high, continuing up a shallow hill roughly a metre tall and two-hundred metres away. To the right is similar scenery; a relatively flat grassy field going out for a kilometre or so before stopping at a distant tree line.
    The chilly air sweeps past my neck and I hunch forward, trying to keep the cold o

Scratch, Rub, Mary (Final Draft)
I can feel the ground against the left side of my body.
 A nostalgic smell.
 L——
 L?
 I’ve smelt this before somewhere—a faint but pungent smell—but I can’t recall what it is.
 Li-? Le-?
 I open my eyes—the ground, the sky, everything’s white.
 I struggle to push myself up; my fingers feel tingly and broken up, and everything’s swaying back and forth. I feel a little dizzy, and sick.
 I clutch my face, my fingers clamping down onto my temples, and try to shake the feeling off.
 This is the worst…
 I look down at both of my hands.
 I think they’re okay.
 A breath in—
 —and out. In—
 —and out.
 I’m still a bit dizzy, but manage to get up on my feet and have another look at my surroundings.
No matter which direction I turn to, it’s all the same: a pure white landscape, stretching on an

Sweet, Sweet... (Edited)
The bell rang for lunch break, and we were excused from class. I zipped up my bag and made sure the padlock clicked into place, swung it over my shoulder and quickly walked out of the classroom.
 Eyes on the ground ahead, and two steps out the door—I had to clench my teeth just to try to stop myself from shaking. Even with a jumper and blazer on, it was freezing cold.
 I should’ve worn something extra underneath.
 I had a glance at the sky while going down the steps and it didn’t look like the clouds would be clearing any time soon. My eyes were back on the ground, and I continued walking.
 “Haah…”
 The mist hung in the air in front of me and I brought my scarf up, covering the bottom half of my face. I rubbed into the wool, trying to get as warm as possible as I made my way towards the canteen area.
 Buy lunch, library.
Once I was at the canteen area, I looked up. There weren’t many people yet, and I q

I'm baaack with a display tablet and newfound knowledge on using photoshop. Yay!
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.
Because I was raised in Australia since the age of 3, I never actually got to pledge allegiance so...I'm just a liiittle late.
Quarry Issue #12 Brief
To all artists interested:

The Quarry’s issue # 12, White Noise, needs a cover, and we want you to design it. The online creative writing journal showcases work by undergraduate, postgraduate and alumni students of the Department of English writing programs. 

We are looking for a cover image that inspires our progressive readers to leap into # 12.  Send us your pitch in three sentences, or a sketch of your idea. Submission deadline is October 19. We'll then decide on the submission that works best for the theme, and get back to everyone with a decision within a few days. Final artwork is due by October 26.
 
The published artist will receive a credit for their work in both our online and print journals, and the cost of artwork materials will be covered for the selected final cover illustration. Only original work by the person submitting the artwork will be used. No copyright infringements allowed!
 
Take a look at the covers of our past issues for some inspiration, www.thequarryjournal.com. We can’t wait to see what you've got for us.

For further information and to submit your pitch/sketch, contact rowan.freeman@students.mq.edu.au. Sketches should be sent via pdf attachment.
I said several days...it took me several months (what the honest ****!?).

Aspiring novelist. I'm doing a BA majoring in Japanese Studies. I study/have studied Japanese (Language and Culture), Psychology, Critical Thinking, Philosophy, Editing and Creative Writing.
Currently only writing short stories for university but I do have ideas for full-length novels I want to write after graduation.
I write YA Fiction and focus on realism (not the genre but realistic personalities, reactions, interaction etc.)
For genres, I tend to write slice-of-life, fantasy, action, and sci-fi, with a focus on psychology.
When writing, I use the Japanese light novel format which is dialogue/monologue heavy, doesn't use speech indicators and uses non-abstract description (so I will never write with an abstract poetic tone unless a character speaks in a poetic way).
If possible, I'd appreciate constructive criticisms on both my writing and art.
