More posts have gone up that I missed. I usually share them on my Facebook page unless I have a few at once—like now.
Ladies of Horror is a writing group I joined a few months ago. Each month Nina D’Arcangela sends participants a photo. We respond with a poem or short prose piece inspired by the photo she sent. She posts the writings on her blog, Spreading the Writer’s Word.
I always love writing from prompts. It helps me to break out of any ruts I’m settling in to. I get new ideas to play with. I learn to be disciplined and honor deadlines. I get feedback on my work. It’s also just a lot of fun.
I think every writer of any level benefits from prompt writing. So far I’ve written Baited Breath and Not Enough Cat Whiskers. My May offering will be a poem tie-in to my already published story The Heaven Grift. And now, let me catch you up on the Ladies of Horror posts I’ve missed sharing:
Bonded by Elizabeth H. Smith—a spooky little nugget that manages to tell a lifetime in a paragraph.
3… 2… 1 by Julianne Snow—another short piece that explores madness from within.
The Unheard Voice by Asena Lourenco—ten-year-old Asena has created a poem with a surprisingly mature voice tinged with darkness. Looking forward to see more from this new writer.
