β€’β€’> The fifteenth prompt for 2010 is a captivating one. The prompt is: SPELLBOUND… what is it that has you captive, awestruck, mesmerized, blown away, under it’s control — in the past or present… maybe it’s an actual ritual spell you feel you’re under, real or imagined… perhaps it’s a spell you would like to cast… is it white magic or black magic — or love magic, or… It should be very exciting to see what we each conjure up.

So focus your powers, and tell us in your words (poem, prose, flash fiction, etc.) the who, what, where, when, why or how regarding the fascination — including any visual image you might want to incorporate. So close your eyes, and let yourself go with whatever it is that moves you to write…

Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi! As always, welcome to the the Island!!! πŸ˜‰
