October 2: #OctPoWriMo #Writober and #NanoPrep


Today’s prompt is vulnerability. I really like Morgan’s artwork and music choice for today.

Forms: Haiku or Lannet. I don’t think I’ve heard of a Lannet before. I think I’ll give it a try. Fourteen lines, 10 syllables each, no end rhymes.


Reaching blindly into the dark abyss
where monsters lurk and may bite or devour
knowing fear and facing it openly
each toe dipped deeper into the unknown
raw and tender, like the bruised flesh of fruit

Skin eroding under the slightest touch
reveals the damage and imperfections
time’s cruelty left behind to fester
and grow, fungus in damp and shadow
to some ugly, others delicacy

The raw nerves open to thrill and excite
are also unprotected from distress
the peril of quiet contemplation
and diving into the murky waters


Today’s visual prompt is The Colour Out of Space by Ron Miller inspired by the story by H. P. Lovecraft.

micro-story He stared into the array of colorful light bursting from his well and believed he saw eyes staring back at him, swirling in the glow. He couldn’t look away, ever.

Read for inspiration and craft

Horror flash fiction At the End of the Song, a Ghost is Waiting by Cat Rambo

Horror online magazine Three-Lobed Burning Eye

Horror movie of the day Event Horizon

NaNo Prep

I enjoyed the webcast yesterday and the prompts helped me get some writing done. I recommend at least watching the very end. It’s inspiring. I didn’t get to my post about Plot and Structure yesterday. I’ll try to get it out today.
