Dark Love Story: Sins of the Flesh

Happy Thursday book readers and writers!

This past month I participated in an Instagram writing challenge that a few of my insta-writers were putting together. The premise of this challenge was to write a dark love story, without the butterfly kisses, flowers, chocolates, and endless snuggling.

For me, writing dark tales is no challenge at all.

Even so, this was a far step from my WIP, which has its moments but is a far step away from what this challenge was asking for. Each day a prompt was given to incorporate into your story. It ran for 14 days and the challenge was to write 1,000 words a day.

I successfully completed the challenge and by George it was fun!

If you have been following my IG feed, I was posting excerpts from my tale every day to give a sneak peek as to what was happening. Now it is successfully up on Wattpad and I could not be happier with it. It still needs some editing, but it really gave my writing inspiration a boost.

I was kind of in a slump with my Dragon series, but writing something completely new and off the cusp was EXACTLY what I needed to get myself back into the swing of things.

The 2 lovely ladies who ran this prompt are the amazing C.A. Wright & Sandy Smith. Follow them on IG!

  1. Done and done. I was thoroughly impressed by how you were able to make me feel sympathy for a disgruntled, psychotic murderer. I know I have my own personal demons to battle – some of these demons nobody will ever know about, but it’s NOTHING in comparison to what your MC faces in that short story of yours. It just goes to show you can’t be quick to judge somebody for their faults, you have NO idea what they’re facing on a daily basis. Our minds have filters for most things where for others, those filters simply don’t exist and they don’t know how to stop.

    Anyway, it was a great read and I look forward to the next short (and your main WIP) when it’s ready.

    1. Thanks so much for reading! I appreciate it greatly! This was such a fun story to write and a complete turn away from my fantasy novel. Nice change of pace 🙂
