October Writing Prompt Participants

writer-360790_960_7202

Well, we had another great month of writing and the response was even greater than last month.  We had a few extra people join in on the fun this time around, and I want to congratulate, Dorinda Duclos, Grant Fenton, and Tessa Smeigh for completing every single prompt!  If you haven’t had the opportunity to read their work, please take a moment to visit their websites.

Like last month, I’ve included the links to all the participating prompt writers below.  I apologize ahead of time if I missed adding some of the links.  It’s getting harder to keep track now, with so many of you participating.  So, please let me know if I happened to miss any, and I’ll be happy to make the correction and add your link to the list.

You all did a great job and I feel so privileged to be part of a community of such amazing and wonderful writers!  I hope you’ll continue to write with me for the remainder of this year and into the next.  Much love to all of you!  ~M  xo

#MidnightMadness – 4/4/2017

clock-1521123__340

Every night at the dinner table, one of us poses a question for everyone to answer.  Tonight my daughter Autumn asked this one; she said,

“If you could go back in time, how far back would you go, and why?”

So now I’m asking you… my fellow blogger friends.  How would you answer this question?  For me, I don’t know if I’d go back at all since I’m not quite sure what I would hope to accomplish.   ~M

#MidnightMadness – 3/24/2017

mobile-phone-1990126_960_720

The phone call after the writer has just poured out all of their deep-seated emotions and posted them on their blog.

 

Caller- “Hey, are you ok?”

Writer- “Yeah, why?”

Caller- “Well, I just read your blog post.”

Writer- “And?”

Caller- “Well you sounded sort of depressed.”

Writer- “Yeah, so?”

Caller- “Well it just sort of worried me.”

Writer- “Why?”

Caller- “Well, because you sounded so sad.”

Writer- “Can I ask you a question?”

Caller- “Sure, ask away…”

Writer- “When’s the last time you released all of your inner angst and just let it go.”

Caller- “Oh me? I never do that.”

Writer- “And how do you feel keeping all of those emotions bottled up inside of you?”

Caller- “Well, not too good I suppose.”

Writer- “Well then, shouldn’t I be more worried about you at the moment than you are about me?”

Caller- “Hmmm, yes I suppose… probably.”

Writer- “Well then, I think you’ve answered your question. Godspeed my good friend. Hope you’ll be okay.”

Caller- “Oh yeah… right, hmmm….. goodbye.”
