Prompt Seventy-Five- The Color of Hunger
I found this idea on creativewritingprompts.com. It's simple, but it's a free write. So you start and don't stop. No backtracking or editing. Just go with it and let your thoughts take you wherever they want. Here it is! Write about the color of hunger. Ready...Set...Go!
Hunger is every color because hunger is unending. Hunger is black because hunger hurts. Hunger isn't pink and fluffy and nice. It's black and gritty and dark and violent. Hunger is red because hunger kills. Hunger is a serial killer that doesn't care about what you look like. Hunger kills white people, black people, red, yellow, green, blue people. Hunger doesn't label or discriminate. Hunger has no bounds. Hunger is blue because hunger is sadness. Hungry people cry and scream and fill with emptiness. The emptiness is blue because the emptiness is the ocean, unending and deep. We can't define hunger with simple words or understand it with a simple solution. Hunger is gray because it isn't easy. There's no simple thing about hunger. So it stays in the grayness of the unknown. Hunger isn't green. Green is too happy. Green is too wholesome and full of life. Hunger is the opposite of green and yellow. Yellow gives life. Yellow is brightness and hope. But hunger doesn't have hope. Hunger doesn't possess the ability to hope. Hunger is the murderer of hope. Hunger kills spirits.
Hunger is every color because hunger doesn't label. Hunger will find your middle-class family. Hunger will find the rich and poor. Hunger doesn't care if you're male or female or black or white. Hunger is uncaring, evil, and hurtful. Hunger is red and black and gray and blue. Hunger is death and evil and sadness and unknown. It is never-ending. Make hunger yellow and green. Make it pink and fluffy. End it so hunger is understood.

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
