Coldly Calculating: Twenty Four Seven
A.L. Mabry will be your host each week as we probe the darker corners of your imagination. This series is meant to help feed your mystery/horror muse, so try to give us chills! The prompt is open to interpretation, but try to include the phrase somewhere in your piece.
This Week’s Prompt
All day, every day. What is your MC known for? Nonstop sexual prowess? Is he/she the protector of everyone, all the time? Give me a scene that really shines a light on who your character is, that one thing that is consistent about them no matter the day or time. And then throw a wrench into it. Need a different spin? Drop your MC into an establishment that never closes. Ever. I like it dark, don’t be afraid to push the envelope.
The rules are simple:
- Read the prompt and the history behind the phrase.
- Write a story 700 words or less answering the challenge.
- Share the URL to your story in the comments OR, if you don’t have your own blog, share your story in the comments. Either way, it will be seen.
- Add trigger warnings where necessary. Keep vulgarity to a minimum.
- Have FUN!
Until next time, scribe happy and stay sassy!
