The Photo Writing Prompt


The Inspiration:

The photo reminded me of a scene from the prologue of They All Died Smiling My publisher wouldn’t print it, so the only way to read it is either the redacted version of this scene here (to accommodate the 100-word limit) or by subscribing to receive free stories. You’ll get the whole prologue and some other goodies when you do that. You can se the form below or click

The Story: “Freedom on the Mountain” from the forbidden chapter of They All Died Smiling:

Genre: Paranormal

Word count: 100

The spectacular view of pink and golden rays of sunlight streaming through a hole in dark grey clouds lit her way like the Star of Bethlehem.

Alison cried, “Thank you, Jesus; I’m free!” as she leapt over the edge.

She hurtled toward the rocky ground. The whoosh of air tugged at her hair and eyelashes. She shouted and laughed her way down the nine-hundred-foot drop.

Her bones shattered before the echo of her triumphant shouts faded into memory. Like a sacrificial offering, her lifeblood dripped down the rocks and into the stream, tinting it crimson, diluting her essence.
