Dailies is a self-set writing challenge focusing on writing creatively each day for 30 days.

My basic guidelines are:

  • 300 word max
  • Each section is focused around the chosen theme
  • The sections do not have to be in chronological order
  • Have fun

Theme – Contract killer who is haunted by their first hit.

Note: thank you to John Fox for the theme idea – https://thejohnfox.com/2016/07/creative-writing-ideas-and-prompts/
