I’m sitting here, listening to the autumn rain, dressed warm with slippers on my feet, and wondering what to write for the introduction of this week’s prompt. It was my turn to do the top 3 again, and where I always enjoy reading all the posts, I also wish I could feature all of them in the highlight below. But alas, I have to make a choice, right? This time I decided to highlight posts that actually followed the prompt.

Before I share my choices, I have something else I want to share: some of us are sharing our work on Medium too, and not all of those posts have first been published on our blogs. If you want to read everything we write, please follow us on Medium:

Top 3 for week 487 by Marie A. Rebelle

So here goes, the three posts I selected to highlight for last week’s prompt:

Public Nudity Live Blog by No Pants Endurance
There are amazing images in this post, all of them taken en route while either driving, or running. There are dunes and mountains and rails. So, what does this have to do with the ‘dark street’ prompt? I love how creative he was at the end of his post, where he concluded with his take on the prompt. Go look!

Back Against the Wall by May More
A fortune cookie plays an important part in this hot piece of fiction by May. Written in the first person, it gives the sense of urgency she was looking for, while we read about all the sexiness happening in that dark street!

Down The Dark Alley? Not Today! by The barefoot sub
I am very fond of barefoot’s writing, especially when she writes about feelings and boundaries and all she has learned in the past years. I frequently take something away from her posts, and in this one, I admired her strength, and it caused me some introspection.

Prompt

The prompt is set by Mrs Jones, and it’s her voice you here in the videos:

What is the real world? Is it the every day mundane details of work and colleagues and traffic or is it something else? By escaping these mundane details are we reconnecting with reality? Do we need to connect with and live out our fantasies to become properly human? Sometimes we feel that there is no choice but to accept that life is mundane and that mediocre is the best we can hope for but what if there is a better way? Are we brave enough to make a break for it?

(Please note: the video below takes a minute or so to load, but it is SO worth to see it! And otherwise you can click here to see a longer video.)
