July 2021 Writing Prompts

Welcome to another month of writing prompts. The prompts below are ones I’ve used in the past for my own writing efforts, but to my knowledge have never been published. After nearly four years of posting writing prompts for all of you, it is getting harder to keep track of what I’ve posted and what I haven’t. So please forgive me if you see a duplicate prompt from time to time. Have a great month everyone! 😉 ~M xo

  1. A bottle of hope sat on the shelf
  2. Her kisses were all that he craved
  3. Pickle juice
  4. Enraptured by her beauty he could think of nothing else
  5. Hot cross buns
  6. His tummy rumbled and his feet grumbled
  7. Time stole his most prized possession
  8. He grew impatient as dawn slowly turned to dusk
  9. The spoiled soup had turned to goop
  10. The boy who read her
  11. Lollipop trees and sugar filled seas
  12. She tickled my senses
  13. Grabbed from behind
  14. The tunnel took me there
  15. Soft skin
  16. Misty mornings
  17. 1, 2… buckle my shoe
  18. Paupers and peppercorns
  19. Icy flames
  20. Beggars can’t be choosers
  21. Treading lightly
  22. The land of light
  23. Genuine discourse
  24. Tears hidden in the rain
  25. The honeymoon
  26. Lit with desire
  27. Felt and bobbles
  28. Ransacked
  29. Peanuts and popcorn
  30. Teenage drama
  31. Wishes and waterfalls

If you’re new to prompt writing, and don’t really understand how to use the prompts, please consider the following writing exercise.

Settle into your favorite place in the house with a hot drink to warm your waking bones.  Once you’ve warmed up a bit; grab your journal, a trusty pen, and a timer.  Then, set your timer for ten minutes and begin writing about one of the prompts.  Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, neatness, or anything like that; just write!  Write about anything and everything that comes to your mind, and don’t stop until the ten minutes are up.

I often find myself writing short stories or poems during those ten minutes, but you can write about anything you like.  And don’t be alarmed if what you’ve written doesn’t quite make sense.  The whole idea behind doing this exercise is to get your mind ready and working so that you can begin your day.  Just think of it as exercise for your brain, and once you’ve done your ten minutes of writing, you’ll feel more prepared to tackle the rest of your day.

As always, I will be writing and posting over on my other blog, which can be found here. So please come visit me if you get a chance, and hopefully I can keep up with all of you!

And one last thing before I forget!  I made a quick tutorial for those of you who have been having trouble trying to figure out how to Pingback your posts.  Please go here, if you’d like to view the tutorial.

Never let them go…

“There are a rare few who have the ability to heal our scars.  I find myself holding on tight whenever I’m lucky enough to find one.”  ~M

“Medicine”

You’re my bulletproof vest when it’s getting dangerous
Always make me feel blessed, you’re my guardian angel
You are, you are, you are
Yeah, you are, you are, you are

You put your body on mine when they’re taking aim
You’re the pin in my heart, it’s a hand grenade
You are, you are, you are
The cure for all my scars

I feel like you
Could save me now
When I’m suicidal
Don’t let me spiral

You make my heart beat faster than adrenaline
You kiss away the pain of all the hell I’m in
You’re gonna make me better than I’ve ever been
‘Cause you’re my medicine, you’re my medicine

You make my heart beat faster than adrenaline
You take the pain whenever I’m in hell again
I know you’ll make me better than I’ve ever been
‘Cause you’re my medicine, yeah, you’re my medicine

You always say we should move to LA (move to LA), yeah
I’ll buy you a plane and I’ll fly you away (fly you away)
You are my heroine, you’re my escape
Everything gonna be Gucci today

I feel like you
Could save me now
I know I hurt you
I don’t deserve you, no no

You make my heart beat faster than adrenaline
You kiss away the pain of all the hell I’m in
You’re gonna make me better than I’ve ever been
‘Cause you’re my medicine, you’re my medicine

You make my heart beat faster than adrenaline
You take the pain whenever I’m in hell again
I know you’ll make me better than I’ve ever been
‘Cause you’re my medicine, yeah, you’re my medicine

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
‘Cause you’re my medicine
Yeah, yeah, whoa oh

I love the way you look in that Balenciaga
One sip of you, I’m hooked, I wanna hit it harder
No drug could feel this good, now I’m addicted to you, ooh
(Yeah)

You make my heart beat faster than adrenaline
You kiss away the pain of all the hell I’m in
You’re gonna make me better than I’ve ever been
‘Cause you’re my medicine, you’re my medicine

You make my heart beat faster than adrenaline
You take the pain whenever I’m in hell again
I know you make me better than I’ve ever been
‘Cause you’re my medicine, yeah, you’re my medicine

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
‘Cause you’re my medicine
Yeah, yeah, whoa oh
