Daily Writing Prompt: It’s a Wonderful Life

For December, I looked to the titles of songs, movies, and books for my daily writing prompts. Although I tried to provide an interesting variety of prompts, these turned out more Christmas heavy than I intended.  My apologies to those of other faiths and/or traditions.

These prompts are designed to inspire you to write a poem, prose piece, piece of flash fiction, or create a piece of art 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 in some way

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

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

  1. Tossed in a river, they say never the same twice
    We had to swim, each grasping for a shore
    Upon different banks we washed up
    Tired, worn out, somehow having made it
    In spite, the currents that wished to devour us
    Still spinning and twirling as if we’d never stroked
    Once in its dance. So I thought as I walked away
    It’s wonderful, a life, a second life, a chance to finally
    Hear the bell that rings for me.
