Novel Dreamers – January 2019

Novel Dreamers is a monthly writing challenge created by Dagna Theatre. Each month several talented writers (and Shaun) are set a task to write about a specific idea with a 1500 word limit. At the end of the month there’s a poll and a winner (not Shaun) is chosen.

January’s Novel Dreamers challenge theme was Love. I’ve never written any kind of romance before, it’s not really in my wheelhouse, so I went for something a little different. Something that showed the darker side of love. I just needed a little bit of help from a wonderfully haunting track by Arcade Fire called My Body Is A Cage. Check out the song on Youtube here.
