Christine’s Daily Writing Prompt: Beloved – Toni Morrison

10-10-2019

For October, I decided to embrace the Halloween season and use titles of short stories and books discussed in the enjoyable and informative new book Monster, She Wrote: The Women Who Pioneered Horror and Speculative Fiction as my Daily Writing Prompts.  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 me at her.red.pen.wordsmithing@gmail.com.

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

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

or on Instagram by tagging your writing with:

  • #the title of the daily theme
  • #MonsterSheWroteChallenge
  • @christabelle1966

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

  1. My Beloved

    She said, I was her heart’s desire
    sometimes
    I think
    she meant it.
    I think
    sometimes
    I felt it too.
    But now I feel
    empty
    of desire
    I feel
    only strangeness
    holding her heart in my hand.
    I feel it pulsating with life.
    I feel the blood flowing like tears,
    while she lies still,
    so still,
    empty.
    Emptied of desire,
    like me.
    Only wonder.
    Only I wonder
    what will happen next.
