I have a confession to make: I am a life-long musical fan. From a very young age, I have been enchanted by such films at Singin’ In the Rain and Meet Me in St. Louis. I know that many of you may not share my affection and may not experience a feeling of magic when a character spontaneous starts singing and dancing across the silver screen. ‘No ONE does that in real life’ you may insist. All I can say is that you have never been at my house for dinner. ANYTHING can happen.
My January 2020 prompts are inspired by some of the greatest movie musicals of the last nine decades in all their politically incorrect technicolor glory. Even if you are not a movie musical fan, I hope that you find these prompts intriguing. They 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 musical title as your piece title OR integrate all the words in the title into your piece in some way. Extra credit will be awarded to those who pay tribute to these fabulous films.
I love sharing your responses to my prompts. If you would like to have your piece considered for publication on Brave and Reckless, please email your prompt-inspired pieces to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A short biography and a link where visitors can see more of your work is helpful and responses accompanied by a suggested image are much quicker for me post.
Wishing you a new year full of peace, laughter, joy, and creativity.
