Hello, Word Artists and Admirers! While October might seem a more appropriate time to consider things that go bump in the night, my Valentine's Day usually includes a monster movie or two. This year my husband and I decided to switch things up a bit. We spent Valentine’s weekend facing monsters together and playing Dungeons & Dragons. It’s been the first time I’ve played in a while, and one of the rare times my husband wasn’t running a game but enjoying it with me as a fellow player. I had a blast! Have you had the chance to do something fun recently (V-day related or not)?
In honor of my return to the gaming table, I am suggesting working with the idea of monsters, either a specific one or monsters in general for those who want a prompt to play with. But as always, you’re free to follow your muse and submit a piece with any theme that speaks to you. I’m taking prose and poetry, fiction and non-fiction. Just remember, one entry per person and please keep your prose pieces to 369 words or fewer.
For those interested in working with a prompt next week, Rosemary will ask you to re-read a favourite piece of writing and then write something inspired by it. Let the word wizardry commence!
