This Week’s Prompt

Regardless of our religious beliefs, most of us know what the 10 commandments are and many can even recite them. If you need a refresher, you can find them here. At its core, it is a list of rules to govern daily life. For this week’s challenge, I want you to develop a list of unique commandments for your MC and a scene where they break at least one of them. I like it dark, don’t be afraid to push the envelope.

Coldly Calculating: Seven Year Itch

Welcome to Coldly Calculating: Writing by the Numbers.

I 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

 

 

Coldly Calculating (6)

We’ve all heard the phrase and some of us have seen the movie. Seven year itch refers to the supposed phenomena of wanting a new mate in the seventh year of marriage. I can’t verify this personally because I wanted a new husband in the very beginning of my first marriage. My second marriage hasn’t made it to that point yet but I think it’s safe to say I have had my fill of husbands. For this week’s challenge, I want you to work in a situation for your MC has got the girl (or guy) that they struggled to get. Put us post story, in the happily ever after. Is it? I like it dark, don’t be afraid to push the envelope.
