Dear Me (2021)  (18+)
My submission for the competition for WDC, Dear Me
#2243072 by Rhymer of the Rotted Rainbow

           This is my piece for the "Dear Me: Official WDC Contest. It was the second piece I put on WDC, and it was the first piece I’ve entered into any competition. I had no idea what I was doing when I jumped into it, having only been here for a couple of weeks at that time. I still haven’t gone back to clean it up since I posted it…quite frankly, I’m scared of how bad it is. Some day…but not now. And that’s the point of this piece being here…it’s so bad, but it’s where I started as far as competitions. I went on the next month to receive second place in the February round of "Quotation Inspiration: Official Contest. The moral here is to start somewhere and go from there.

           "After was the first piece I posted to WDC. It’s horrible. No, seriously. I’ve only kept it to remind myself from whence I came and whatnot. My mentor in real life, Fyninstein , told me I needed to put something up in my port, and I was wanting to try flash-fiction. And I wrote it on Inauguration Day…again, it’s bad. Bad. This is not one I can really stand by, but I love that it reminds me I’ve trekked a long journey so far.

#2243517 by Rhymer of the Rotted Rainbow

           I wrote this piece for fun, maybe the third one I put on WDC. It’s also the first story where I put more of me into it, and I think those details are obvious to those who are great at reading between the lines. At the same time, don’t get story twisted with reality. I don’t think I’ve ever been dead before. I feel like I’d be able to recall that. I’m from Oklahoma, and this is the first piece I set in my homestate, including beliefs from the Choctaw tribe…what I didn’t know, I made up and called it another tribe.

A Bad Abaddon  (E)
A special outcast feels special things...(2nd Place, “Quotation Inspiration, 02.21)
#2245579 by Rhymer of the Rotted Rainbow

           Okay, so I’m still excited about this story, even six months after writing it. It was the second time I entered a main competition, February’s round of “Quotation Inspiration”, and somehow I placed second. I’m curious about mythologies and origin stories, and for "A Bad Abaddon, I researched the demons and gods of Judaism. I was really surprised with how much I didn’t know about Judaism and the more ancient beliefs.
