Daily Writing Prompt: White as Snow – Tanith Lee

For October, I decided to embrace the Halloween season and use titles of short stories and books discussed in the enjoyable and informative new book Monster, She Wrote: The Women Who Pioneered Horror and Speculative Fiction as my Daily Writing Prompts.  These are designed to inspire you to write a poem, prose piece, or a piece of flash fiction in 30 minutes or less.

The only rule is that you use the book title as your piece title OR integrate all the words in the title into your piece somehow

If you would like to have your piece considered for publication on Brave and Reckless and/or Whisper and the Roar, email your prompt inspired pieces to me at her.red.pen.wordsmithing@gmail.com.

You can also participate on Facebook by tagging your writing with:

  • #the title of the daily theme
  • #MonsterSheWroteChallenge
  • #braveandreckless66

or on Instagram by tagging your writing with:

  • #the title of the daily theme
  • #MonsterSheWroteChallenge
  • @christabelle1966

You can also share your response pieces in the comments below the Daily Prompt.

  1. A poem from Ivor

    A Final May Snow

    Anniversaries, they come, and they go
    Some time now, since you were as white as snow
    Anniversaries, my soul does not let them pass
    Some time now, I reminisce the last

    Anniversaries, none ever forgotten
    Some time now, since your everlasting smile was taken
    Anniversaries flowed over coral, of every color
    Some time now, since your last wave of valor

    Anniversaries, when love grew stronger
    Some time now, since the years became longer
    Anniversaries, across, love, suffering and pain
    Some time now, since our river flooded with rain
    Your troubles fell, with an Autumn leaf
    Forever enshrined, in our promises of belief
