This week’s Weekend Writing Prompt, a challenge hosted by Sammi Cox, considers the theme of fear. The prose challenge asks its participants to consider this word, along with the below picture, as they compose a pangram. As Sammi explains, this is a one-word sentence that contains all the letters of the alphabet at least once. So, here’s my sentence:
I feel them watching me through the quiet haze, their waxy eyes pinned to my back, as if they would just reach out, bring me to my knees and devour me, even as I scream.
Surprisingly, the letter that I struggled with most here was not “q”, “x” or “z”, but “j” – how very strange letters are when you really think about them. Thanks for reading, and thanks again to Sammi Cox for hosting this wonderful challenge.
