This morning I finished my Awakening Short Story as part of my writing buddies' group project/anthology. I had a blast writing it, especially the Instant Messenger conversation between the main character, Jackie Vandersol and her Mother.
It is the story of a college girl who after the Mayan Calender ended in 2012, awakened to discover that plants grew all around her. She tries to start her new semester at the University of California, Berkley but discovers that her "gift" causes way too much trouble when grass and flowers are sprouting in the carpet of her classroom. She has to either drop out and take online courses, some of which aren't available for her major, or learn how to control her gift fast so she can stay in school.
