Before the month is over, I figured I should participate in Marcia’s October Writing Prompt at least once.

This month’s prompts are:

Candles or candlelight
The colors orange and black
The smell of cinnamon
A racing heart
A cry in the night

I decided to go with the first.

Flicker, flicker, warm and bright

warm golden pools

throwing back the dark night

soft glow

flame atop a wick taking flight

flicker, flicker, warm and bright



About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

    She thought she could hide this on her own blog, but I found it, anyway! Neener, neener, neener! 😀 Great one, Caitlin!
