Hello, friends, welcome to week three of Wasted Words writing prompt. This week (and next week) we are tipping out Hair Brained hats to Women in Horror Month, #WiHM if hashtags get your motor running. This week we are paying homage to a classic female horror author, and next week we’ll be picking someone a little more contemporary.
First up to bat, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. Before the quote, I just want to say, I don’t know why more people don’t refer to her by her full name. Wollstonecraft seems like the most don’t-fuck-with-me middle names since Danger, but I digress. This week’s quote comes to us from none other than Frankenstein and that evil doctor who created him…Wait, I screwed that up. Editor, make me sound smart in post, yeah?
Beware, for I am fearless; and therefore powerful.
This is a bit of a cheat quote because we have an art print of it hanging in my room, but damn that’s a good line. Let’s see where you all take it.
