Reaching blindly into the dark abyss
where monsters lurk and may bite or devour
knowing fear and facing it openly

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.
The poem is powerful and the micro-story is absolutely spot-on! I am very impressed!
