Brave and Reckless Breath and Bone Writing Prompt Challenge

Given what a great response I got to the Moon Ate the Dark Writing Prompt Challenge, I am ready to announce my third writing prompt challenge.  I hope it will intrigue and inspire you

Writing Prompt: “I Am More Than Breath and Bones”

borrowed shamelessly from TrE at a cornered gurl— check out her writing– it’s amazing

  1. Using the writing prompt above, write a 100 to 800 word original, previously unpublished piece that integrates the writing prompt.  It can be poetry, prose, short fiction or even essay.  The prompt can be used as the title, you can use the phrase intact, or break it up however you want within the written piece.
  2. Pick out an image to go with your submission
  3. Write a brief biography
  4. Send the following to by midnight EST on Sunday, July 9, 2017:
    • Your original piece
    • suggested image
    • brief biography
    • link to where you post your writing (blog, Facebook page, Instagram, etc.)
  5. Submissions will be judged by me and at least one guest judge.  If you are interested in being a guest judge for this challenge, let me know!
  6. I will publish all submissions on Brave and Reckless as long as they are appropriate and you are welcome to reblog once they have been published. They will also get a plug on Brave and Reckless‘ Twitter and Facebook pages. It would be awesome if everyone who enters reblogs the winning submission to their own blog.

Please feel free to reblog and post this challenge invitation.

Looking forward to reading your work!


  1. Like the new writing prompt. I think its a great idea to allow other bloggers to write about anything using the specified writing prompt. On a side note, one of the requirements for the submission is a brief biography. When you ask that, are you asking about us in particular or where the inspiration came from?

  2. Reblogged this on a cornered gurl and commented:
    I almost forgot to reblog this. Writers, up for a challenge? My tagline is the prompt, one that you guys have seen for years now, “I am more than breath & bones.” This, if I must comment truthfully, should be a brilliant challenge. Many thanks to the host for even crossing over to my little spot in this blogosphere. Peace and blessings, good people. Give it a go!
