'What's your name?'

'Why does it matter?'

'I want to know.'

'My name is of no importance.'

'How come?'

'My name isn't a part of me. It isn't what defines me. My name is nothing more than a label.'

'That's a very interesting way of seeing it.'

'Call me whatever you wish, it means nothing to me.'

'Your name is a part of you though.'


'Your name is as much you as the color of your hair or how tall you are.'

'Just something else for society to label me.'

'Not so. Something is only a label is you wish it to be.'

Official #FightToWrite Critique

This is a unique poem/dialogue which reflects a point of view in an original way, you have gone against the norm and this has reflected in your work. I'm very impressed by the story progression and element of mystery around the characters.

However, to improve, I think you should add some description e.g. the character's thoughts, the setting, how the conversation between the two characters come to be or even, explaining that the two characters are just one person conflicting with views in their head. Think imaginatively and turn this piece in to something magical :squee:

Very well done, featured at #FightToWrite

Im starting to think this is more true because my name is Caitlyn not Kaitlyn,Caitlin,Katelin,Catelyn, or Kaitelyn nor is it Katy,Cat,Kitty,or Kate My name is Caitlyn C A I T L Y N its the original celtic spelling but no one seems to care Whenever some one says "Hey Caitlin" its never me they want to talk to i started tuning out my own name so i wanted a nick name but without completely changing my name It just doesn't feel right I love the name Kyrie but no one would most likely call me that let alone talk to me but i suppose the same goes for a nick name they wouldn't use it any way whats the point the other problem is the other Caitlin doesn't have a nick name either so I dont know what to get people to call me so that i know there talking to me because ive made people mad because i didnt respond because i had tuned it out so im down to one person that speaks my name on a regular basis sorry for rambeling its a great piece though

I love Doctor Who. It's my guilty pleasure show (even though it rips my heart out)
