MySixWriMo Day 11 (and sneak peek at Day 12)


Yesterday’s story came easily for me. A reward, I think, for pushing through. I would never have thought to write a story framed around Fridays if it hadn’t been for the prompt. But once I’d written it, I saw it was in me all the time.

But enough looking backward. Let’s get to today’s prompts.

From Robert Lee Brewer at Poetic Asides:

For today's prompt, I want you to write a poem (six) about an object (or objects). Though you don't have to confine yourself to straight up description, I do want you to focus on object and/or make it a central piece of your poem (six). One of the more famous poems of contemporary literature does this wonderfully in William Carlos Williams' "The Red Wheelbarrow."

And the prompt from The Writer’s Book of Matches (Writer’s Digest Books):

“Either you tell him or I will.”

Write your 6. Share it if you wish. As always, I’ll post mine in the comments.

Now for that sneak peek at Day 12.

I don’t know what the Brewer prompt will be, but here’s what I’m posting tomorrow from The Writer’s Book of Matches (Writer’s Digest Books):

A child finds a magic ring inside a box of cereal.

The Lie

“Either you tell him or I will,” Alice said, her eyes full of fear and bully.

David felt sweat bead his forehead. Dad would be angry when he saw the car; but David knew it would be far worse if he found out the truth.

For David it would just be sneaking out, an irresponsible lapse of judgment on an otherwise spotless record that had resulted in a dinged fender.

But for Alice, it would be sneaking out with that no good piece of shit Monty, letting him touch her like she was a common slut.

“I’ll tell him,” David said, because no good could come of fighting it.
