Hey everyone!  It’s been another great month and instead of picking a favorite post this month, I want to give a shout out to two people who have continued to participate in the prompts every single day without fail.  Here they are… Dorinda of Night Owl Poetry, and Dave of Prompted.  Congrats you two for inspiring the rest of us.  I’ll never understand how you both keep up with everything, but I absolutely love reading all that you post.  And thanks to everyone else who continues to wow me each and every month, all of you have been a delight to read.  ~M xo

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.  😉

Hey Everyone,

Hope all of you had a great month of writing.  Sorry I’ve kinda dropped off this month.  Been busy and completely unmotivated to write, which I noticed seems to be a similar trend with many other bloggers as well.

Anyway, May is a new month and with spring finally showing her face again, I think all of us will finally get back into the swing of things.  Thanks to all of you who participated.

Here are the top writing participants for April…

April Writing Prompts

This month I’ve been reading and watching mostly Sci-Fi, and so I decided to take the inspiration from all of that and use it towards this months prompts.  Also, my youngest two daughters had a hand in helping me with these, and so I must give credit to Brianna and Autumn Cook for their clever ideas.  Brianna is my punner and Autumn is my comedian.  Hope you enjoy the prompts they’ve helped me create for all of you.   ~M

  1. The explosive egg hunt
  2. Chewing chewbacco
  3. The stars stood on standby
  4. Spacing out in shadows doubt
  5. Jumping Jupiter can’t get stupider
  6. Time blossomed then shriveled
  7. It went off with a bang and a hiss
  8. Filaments of frustration
  9. Covered in constellations
  10. Hieroglyphic hineys
  11. Meet ya later by the flux capacitator

Also, for those of you who may never have tried this challenge before, here is what I suggest you try…

To begin, 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 listed below.  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.
