I believe that we all have a certain darkness to our creative sides. I don’t care who you are, how happy you are or if you’ve never frowned or had a horrible thing happen to you ever, there is a darkness inside all of us. We just need to reach deep down and grab it.
Why do I bring this up?
My library has themes for the month where they showcase books. This month’s theme is March Madness. And no, not basketball. This madness, is dark, creepy, horrific, killer madness. And it has inspired me.
I challenge you to write at least one dark thing for the month of March. It can be anything. A poem, short story, advertisement, whatever! And it can be centered around whatever, a ghost tormenting a once loved one for killing them, a pack of zombies after a helpless group of people, a vampire preying on the innocent, or just a psychotic killer who loves to stab people.
It needs to be dark and scary. That’s all I want. The rest is up to you.
Reach deep inside and show me how dark you can go…
