#The Writer’s Quote Challenge is a weekly event. Each Thursday, the hostess(es) Bernadette & Jacqueline will post a weekly prompt.
Either make up your own sayings or use a quote from a famous author that you find gives you inspiration.
This week is Jacqueline’s week and she has chosen:
“Storytelling is the oldest form of education.” Terry Tempest Williams
Great quote about terror Quoted by Stephen King.
“The 3 types of terror: The Gross-out: the sight of a severed head tumbling down a flight of stairs, it’s when the lights go out and something green and slimy splatters against your arm.
The Horror: the unnatural, spiders the size of bears, the dead waking up and walking around, it’s when the lights go out and something with claws grabs you by the arm.
And the last and worse one: Terror, when you come home and notice everything you own had been taken away and replaced by an exact substitute. It’s when the lights go out and you feel something behind you, you hear it, you feel its breath against your ear, but when you turn around, there’s nothing there…”
Here is my inspiration for a terror storytelling tanka poem
writing about terror
invokes a mind filled with fear
that changes when lights go out
a dying flame extinguished
