I was somewhat productive today! I managed to write and send a letter to a teen magazine about stuff I learned in college. (Seventeen Magazine…that means boys, boys, boys) I also found some cool free indie book interviewers and queried them for interviews.

I put out all this positive energy in the world, and now it’s time to get some results.

Keep positive and keep on writing.

Writing Prompt One

Hey guys!

Try this prompt:

Open with the first line of a song

Write prose in the middle

End with the last line (or as close to last as you can get) of another song.

Here’s what I’ve come up with:
Crawling in my skin, these wounds, they will not heal…It was that time again. They had come back for me. They were going to try to awaken that…that monster inside me. He knows they’re trying to release him and so he is thrashing about inside. You might be wondering who He is. He…is…this person, I invented, I created Him to protect me from people who were trying to break me. I made Him as a safety net, a protection as I watch my purple sky fly over me. He was good then, but then I started telling Him about the situation, who was in it and why those people were hurting me. He helped me, He saved me, He revolted against those people, He took over, and that’s when They found me. They wanted His power. At first, He was on my side and resisted, but there was one time after the beatings, and the drugging, the starvation, and the raping when they pulled Him out of me and He changed his mind. He wanted to be separate from me and they promised him his own body, as long as He could break free from me and lock me up for good. I won’t let Him, He’s my creation, Return to me salvation.

Opening Song: Crawling by Linkin Park
Middle Song: Whisper by Evanescence
End Songs: Tourniquet by Evanescence

Keep positive and keep on writing.
