42 is the Right Answer, Day 39

light sToday’s creative writing prompt is:


Think of the seven deadly sins and write a devilishly good argument in favour of one of them. I mean, what’s so bad about, say, sloth or greed? And surely pride isn’t all bad? Or lust?

Try to inject some humour into an article in favour of one of the sins, making it sound reasonable – just for fun.

You can be as absurd as you like, as fictional or factual as you like. Try 400 words on just one from this list:

  • Pride
  • Avarice
  • Envy
  • Wrath
  • Lust
  • Gluttony
  • Sloth

You may like to personify the sin – turn it into a person – for effect? Or just have a rant about which sin has shown itself to be at large during lockdown?

Back to Basics – if you need to catch up,  it started  here (but we’re ending soon).

I intend posting prompts here each day (until May Day) at 5pm – alive at five (Dublin time)
