Write On Wednesdays - The Painful Truth

Another Write On Wednesday! This one I found quite exciting and quite challenging! A Masterclass with the talented Allison Tait from Life In A Pink Fibro.
Here's the brief;
Write Allison's prompt at the top of your page. Set your timer for 5 minutes and write the first words that come into your head after your writing prompt.  Stop when the buzzer rings! Do this exercise over and over if you wish. 
'I can't stress how important it is that we behead this fiend........
before it takes over your life....before it ruins everything.' She hung her head in acquiescence, not wanting to hear the blatant truth but knowing, knowing that if she didn't do something about it quickly, disaster was the only outcome possible.
Admitting it was hard, harder than anything she had ever done before. It was only through finally telling her most trusted confidant that she realised the implications of her mistake.
At first it had all seemed natural and beautiful, but slowly and surely the rot had set in, the disappointment and then the guilt. The all-consuming guilt.
Now seeing the shock written all over her closest friend's face when she had admitted her error of judgement, it was like a wake up call. She knew now what she had to do. It had to end.....and soon.
Write On Wednesdays


  1. This is great Lene, it really drew me in and made me want to know more!

  2. I wanted to know more too. I'm curious to know where this was going.
    Hope you enjoyed this week, I've found it really fun reading everyone's pieces.

  3. I like your addition of a title. It acts like a frame to shape our response. And I like the intrigue of a secret, illicit and toxic affair. It's got a lot of romantic genre mileage in it.

  4. You seem to enjoy this genre? I'd like to know why the rot set in??

    Thanks for playing along again, Lene. I feel like we are all starting to know each other a little better - one month in already!


  5. Hi Lene! Gosh I'm late getting around to everyone's submissions this week. It's all Telstra's fault! LOL Very nice! And I love the use of the word 'acquiescence'. Very nice!

  6. Yes, this piece left me wanting to know what had to end an why.

  7. This is great Lene!!!

    Hey just posted a thank-you on my blog and mentioned you. Pop over and have a look (and no strings attached with this one).

    Hope you're well, Jac xxx
