Could not find my sketch of this but the original will do. Gotta love me some Goya

Blood slips from my fingers into a thick puddle against her chest. The blade twisted cracking ribs as it plummeted into her lung. A prayer to a god I don’t know. Forgive me….

“I feel I’m able to get rid of any demons lurking in my psyche through my writing, which leaves me free to create all of this and to enjoy our family life, stepping away from all the fictional traumas and the dramas. If I write about family in crisis, then I won’t have to live through it, I guess.”

– Jodi Picoult

This weekend Trifextra is asking for 33 of your own words that exorcise a demon.  One of your own, or one from your imagination.  Let it bleed on the page.

This week’s challenge is community-judged.

    • 0.0 Thank you for reading. I’m looking forward to checking out your words. I’ve read your name in comments a few times and I love fiction. It’s so much nicer than reality.

    • There is always more, the hidden story that lies just below the surface is the best part of this 33 word snippet. The fact that it feeds your imagination and brings you back for more, makes my day.
      Thank you

    • 🙂 the unanswered question is alway answered by the reader regardless of what moves the writer or artist for that matter.
      For me, the demon is clearly written in those few words. I’m not often as direct as I’ve chosen to be in this post. Life is more enjoyable when viewed as fiction.
      That it suggests alternatives makes me smile…
      Love your blog btw
