Daily Writing Prompt #7.13 – No Pain, No Gain (9/2/13)
I skipped Sunday for the writing prompts, and I think I will continue to do that. I don’t want to get burned out over this blog, as I did with my old blog, Keen Tea Thyme. Well that and tea is very political. You wouldn’t think politics would play a role in the world’s favorite beverage but good lord, the politics that ensued!
Today’s writing prompt is posting late, and I apologize. I’ve been fighting a migraine all weekend and still had the pain today. I was off, thank you US Government, but with the horrid weather and barometric pressure I fear I may be out sick tomorrow (Tuesday) as well. I hope not!
In honor of my migraine, pick an ailment that stops you in your tracks and write a flash fiction piece about a character suffering from that ailment, without actually naming the pain. You can describe everything else about the pain (and use the word “pain”) but not what is actually wrong.
