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.

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.

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!

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.

I’m still not great at staying on the targeted prompt, but I wanted to try this one out with a different twist.

Many of you may know that I am a voracious reader, and at some point during this thirty day challenge, I will tell the stories of what shaped my reading habits and gave me a pure and unadulterated passion for the written word. You may also know that my number one genre is romance. To that end, I find it hysterical that during my teenaged years, no one was finding their happily-ever-after in anything that I wrote. Since one of my many talents includes the ability to make fun of myself, let’s take a journey of what that body of written work included.
