TW for talk of unaliving, mentions of trauma, and staying in a facility for mental health treatment. Honestly this whole post is likely one giant trigger, so proceed with gentleness if you choose to read.

UBC Day 11: It’ll Cure What Ails You
As I searched for the list of prompts I’ve been using for my April posts, I found a piece of free writing that I did a couple of years ago. I don’t know what I was originally going to do with it or what my prompt was, but it was pretty dark. I decided to write where I left off, which is after the line about the human condition. What human condition, I wonder? I have no idea. But I wanted to play with some themes that I normally wouldn’t dare.
Content warning: a doctor who shouldn’t be doctoring, medical horror, torture, and a bunch of inner monologuing about murder.

UBC Day 10: Competition Short Story the first
Last year, I found out about a story competition where the character that you wrote about, the the theme, and the genre were chosen for your group by the judges. Imagine my dismay when I found out that mine would be horror. I don’t read horror, don’t watch horror movies, and am a giant chicken. I don’t even know if I could tell you a lot of horror tropes.

UBC Day 7: Married to Magic
I decided to flip the script on this prompt. As usual, I got it from this website and wrote all I could in twenty minutes. I’ve only edited for spelling.
UBC day 6: Epistolary or bust?
I didn’t end up posting last night, so let this make up for it.
Also, trying to write these introductory posts without self-deprecation or negative talk is really hard. I’ll just say that I really struggled with this prompt from the website I’ve been getting these from, but I enjoyed it all the same!
UBC Day 5: There are Ten Things You Need to Know
Can you believe that I’m on day 5? I’m so happy about that! Today’s prompt has been taken from this website.

UBC Day 4: Imagine What You Will
In another episode of not reading the prompt clearly, I wrote this and then realized that maybe this wasn’t what was meant. Oh well!
Once again, I grabbed today’s prompt from this website. If you are interested, consider writing to this as well. I set the timer for twenty minutes and did my best.
Content warning for implied torture, imprisonment, and talk of death.

UBC Day 3: I’ve Got the Music in Me
