I have decided to put together a list of thirty prompts for April. The idea is to write 150-200 words a day for each prompt and to post it on this blog. At the end of the month, I’ll post the list of prompts if anyone is interested in trying.
I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to post every day. Wish me luck.
Prompt 1: Have you considered murder?
“Have you considered murder?”
Jude looked over at her sister, unsure how to respond. It had crossed her mind once or twice after a lengthy argument with him. She hadn’t really entertained the thought too much. “What do you mean have I considered murder?”
“Well, you keep complaining that he keeps stringing you along. You have two children between the two of you and he’s not committing any time soon.”
“That doesn’t mean I can murder him.”
Jude looked over at her two children asleep on the couch. “Because of Benny and Jane.”
“They’re still only babies really. They won’t remember.”
“Charlotte, I appreciate wanting to bring humour into the situation, but it’s not helping.”
“It can only help,” Charlotte said. “And I’m not kidding.”
Jude sat back in her chair, unsure how to respond to her sister. She couldn’t really consider it, could she?
“If you want to, call me. I have a plan.”
She watched Charlotte kiss the twins goodbye before she left with a wink and a wave.
