Christine’s Daily Writing Prompt: Crush – Jane Futcher


Throughout the month of September, Christine will be providing a daily writing prompt based on the title of a well-regarded book where the main character is a lesbian or a woman exploring her sexual identity. We know that this is not everyone’s cup of tea, but Christine has very carefully chosen titles that could be creatively inspiring to anyone.  You certainly don’t need to be a lesbian or even a woman to participate, nor does your response piece need to be written from a lesbian perspective.  These are designed to inspire you to write a poem, prose piece, or a piece of flash fiction in 30 minutes or less.

The only rule is that you use the book title as your piece title OR integrate all the words in the title into your piece somehow

If you would like to have your piece considered for publication on Brave and Reckless and/or Whisper and the Roar, email your prompt inspired pieces to Christineat

You can also participate on Facebook by tagging your writing with:

  • # the title of the daily theme
  • #SmittenBookChallenge
  • #braveandreckless66

or on Instagram by tagging your writing with:

You can also share your response pieces in the comments below the Daily Prompt.

  1. Summer crush
    And the beach

    Drifting into me accidentally Touch of hands
    Heartrate increased

    Waves pushing your body next to me
    Warm rush
    Smiles on our faces
    Lingering embrace
    Stolen moment
    Sea side fantasy

    Anticipation of that first kiss
    Awkward mumbling
    Too many glances
    Caught in your stare
    Further advances

    First date
    Making memories
    Hand holding
    Captured on the beach

    Moonlight walks under the stars
    Sharing hopes and dreams
    Meeting friends
    Introductions to family

    Seasons coming to an end
    Hopelessly falling
    Love at it’s peak
    Planning a future
    It all started way back when
    A summer time crush

    Where our love story began
