Rainy Days and Mondays Challenge!

This week, we bid farewell to Slow, Sated Sundays, rip off a calendar page, and welcome in Rainy Days and Mondays!

Whether it’s spring or fall for you, it’s a prime season for being all up in one’s feels- so let’s have some romantic prompts, some angsty themes, and maybe a dash of yummy pining.

We’ll start this week big with three options: a prompt, a quote, and a song.

Good luck, and happy writing/art-ing!

Prompt: Date gone wrong. Might be a first date, might be a weekly date night- but it goes very awry.

Quote: “The very essence of romance is uncertainty.” ― Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays

I want your love, and I want your revenge
You and me could write a bad romance
