“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”— Søren Kierkegaard

Well hello.

It’s been a while.

I’m sure you can work out what’s been happening over the last 18 months.

Anyway… I have some new content to share! Better late than never, right?

A few months ago, some friends and I set ourselves a joint writing challenge. We each had to write a short story, which we would then share together on one of virtual Saturday night gatherings.

To help get the creative juices flowing we each chose three prompts – an object, a place, and a feeling – which were then randomly assigned to other members of the group.

The prompts I gave:

  • A plastic plant pot shaped like a human head
  • The bottom of the garden, where the wild things grow
  • Angst

The prompts I received:

  • A house key
  • The Vatican
  • Awe

All three of our prompts had to be included in some capacity within the story, we also had to include a character that was based on, or named after, someone that we all knew – other than this we were free to write whatever we liked.

Some of the content is a bit weird / dark / NSFW for general reading, however, I have a few that I’ve got permission to share.

Up first: Belladonna – watch this space.

If you did anything similar over lockdown I’d love to hear about it – drop me a comment below 🙂
