A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend. How you use the prompt is up to you. Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like. Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise. If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in Sammi’s Comment Section Click here to hear the author read his words:
Kill them all!
Males, females, cubs, they are savages, sub-human creatures.
We obey with glee, guns against sticks, we wipe out the entire settlement.
I see some day-old tracks, follow them into the hinterland.
On soft ground they are clearer.
One set large, wide-spaced, male.
Second set smaller, closer, female.
Third set erratic, small and scuffed, but consistently close to the female.
Suddenly I understand.
Not a cub.
A running, skipping, dancing child.
Holding mother’s hand.
I turn back, wiping away my tears.
We are the savages.
