Writing Of Angels Essay

I sighed and puffed out my cheeks, my eyes narrowed and dark. I turned my glare briefly towards the notepad to the right of my laptop before looking back out the window. The rain was perfect for a setting idea. Cold rain lashing against a tattered human as they walk sightless through the storm. Now the question (which I couldn’t answer) was what was going on? What was the story? Plot? Nothing that I could think of at the moment. Typically, I could think of something, even if it was only something short. Right now? Nothing.
“What? Little Miss Novelist having trouble with her latest creation?” I heard Shiloh call from my right with a muffled clatter of silverware.
I looked over and saw he had placed another cup of tea by me. I smiled shyly shook my shoulders to convey a slight yes. I glanced from the tea cup back to him and raised an eyebrow. I hadn’t bought another cup. No matter how good it is, I don’t have enough money to buy more than one a day.
“From the same person who wrote this,” he explained as he pulled a folded note out of his pocket.
I reached for it slowly before ripping out of his hand. I gave him a suspicious look before unfolding the note. I glared up at him, his eyes too happy and mischievous to be from anyone but him. I grabbed my small white board and a marker. Haha, very funny. There are better ways to flirt Shi.

I pouted and looked at the cup. I tapped my pencil and wondered if he was joking or not. Shiloh was so nice, but sometimes I couldn’t tell when he was serious about what he thought of me. I wanted to ask him, but he’d probably laugh it off. I think that’s the problem I’ve run into most with not being able to talk. It’s hard to express when you’re being serious or joking or sarcastic. That’s probably why I couldn’t tell him how I really felt. I put the pencil down and reached for my tea. My eyebrows shot up in surprise. It tasted like cherries. It was delicious.
You bring sun to a dark and dreary life.

My eyelids slowly started to droop down as I stared at the bright screen. I had come in later than usual today. Now it was pitch black out, what with it being another rainy day and half past seven. I had a general outline of what the main point a story written out in a small summary. My problem now was how to begin it, plot twists to throw in, characters to write, etc. Even with that process I was at a dead end of where to being. Should I start writing the characters? Write out some plot twists? I couldn’t figure it out.
I glanced out of the corners of my eyes and sighed. I looked up at Shiloh and pulled my white board towards me. I scribbled down a message before turning the board to him. Is this going to become an ongoing joke or something?
He laughed that sweet laugh of his and sighed. “You really...
