The Daily Post Writing Prompt: The Pitchfork Murders

I received a writing prompt from WordPress’ “The Daily Post” a few moments ago.  The suggestion for a blog post is to explain what happens when your favorite painting, sculpture or the graffiti next door comes to life.

Instantly an image came to mind.  It was the man with the pitchfork in “American Gothic” by Grant Wood running around with his trusty pitchfork in his right hand on a murderous rampage.  Among the bodies hitting the floor is that of his lovely wife.

Yes, I know my idea is sick and twisted but what do you expect from someone who grew up watching Dark Shadows and reading some Stephen King novels?

Can’t wait to see what the Blogging University’s “Writing 101” prompt is for today. Hopefully it will lead to a more joy filled post.     😉
