Simple prompt today from a song title:
Write a story prompted by the song title Beyond The Blue Horizon
- This song was written in the golden age of the popular song, by Leo Robin, W. Franke Harling and Richard A. Whiting. If you want to write a 1940s period piece have a listen to this very evocative clip, for inspiration.
- You could use the full lyrics for inspiration or
- Ignore the ‘prior art’ and simply let the title take you off in any direction.

My take. . . an attempt at writing noir. Up at News from the Guild.
Here’s today’s story. As my intro explains, I cheated.
Voila. (Phew) . . .
Done for today! http://starvingactivist.wordpress.com/2013/05/15/story-a-day-15-dark-horizon/
I did use the prompt, and thought it would be an easy one, but it turned out to be a bit more complicated. Enjoyed playing around with it. It’s a bit nostalgic and forward-looking at the same time. Anyway, one more done at sarahcain78.com. Sarah
Funny, I decided not to use the prompt today, but then after writing my story I realised that it is kinda linked to the theme of the song!
Ha! I got inside your brain!
Lou Christie also did a version of it. Just beautiful….
Done it 🙂 That was an interesting prompt.
