This week the writing prompt for red writing hood was the forbidden.
You have 450 words to write a fiction or creative non-fiction piece about the forbidden or the taboo.
Keep in mind that those things aren’t necessarily the same for different people in different cultures — just like the concept of freedom. Feel free to explore what’s hidden in the center of that forbidden rose…but be careful of the thorns.
It spoke to me in a volume of ways because right now in my life, I am definitely straddling the forbidden – or at the very least, the bad idea – and I walked into it willingly – knowing the thorns that lie ahead. I’m frustrated though, because I’m not allowed to write about it really – because you know – it’s forbidden.
So instead, I’ll pose a question to you guys, and you can guess at what I’m doing.
How many of you have dated co-workers? What was the end result?
