Hey listeners, readers, and writers. It’s time for another Garage Fiction weekly prompt. We skipped a couple weeks – because sometimes life likes to kick you in the front of the pants – but are back for prompt #58. Prompt #58 was submitted by GF Member, Dave, and our submissions for the group are due Friday, April 7th.
Dave wants us to give a listen to When We Fell, by David Bazan.
(I know exactly what you’re thinking but Dave isn’t David. Our Dave assuming “David” to disguise his identity from the group for a little stealth-promotion…well…that’d be a bit like Kal-el putting on eye glasses, wouldn’t it?)
Dave (not David) has also selected a passage from John Milton’s Paradise Lost to share:
‘O Goodness infinite, goodness immense
That all this good of evil shall produce,
And evil turn to good; more wonderful,
Than that which by creation first brought forth
Light out of darkness! Full of doubt I stand,
Whether I should repent me now of sin
By me done, or occasioned; or rejoice’
(Gustav Doré, “Him the Almighty Power / Hurled headlong flaming from the ethereal sky”)
Yup, our Dave has brain workings. I’m sure we can all agree that no one named “David” has ever proven to be that sagacious (what? I know big words). Of course, that doesn’t apply to David Bazan. We like him.
Until next time; be deep, think things with your thinker, and smash those words onto the page. We’ll see you in the garage.
