Where does it come from?

November Writing Prompt Participants

autumn-2902510_1280

Wow!  I’m sitting here reading over the list below, and I’m simply amazed by how many of you participated in the prompts this month.  As I said last month, I’ve decided to choose a favorite blog post for each month.  I ended up jotting down about ten of them, all of which I really liked, so it was hard to choose.  But after reading this one tonight, called, “A Piece of Silver Sage” by Cosistories, it left me with such a good feeling inside, that I decided to chose it as my favorite.  So… well done Cosistories!  Thanks to all of you for another great month!  ~M xo

Trudging along…

Well, I know I haven’t been around for a while, but I’ve been working really hard to get through school.  Blogging has sort of had to take a backseat for the time being because of the amount of work I’ve had to do.  I’ve managed to stay at the top of my class since I started, and today I received the best news ever.  I ended up with a perfect score on my final exam and was told it was one of the best finals that my professor has ever received.  My exam consisted of five essays and ended up being eleven pages long, so to find out how well I did, caused the tears to flow straight away.  For a writer especially, I think we want to know that our writing is good and we crave encouraging feedback.  So for me, today is just the best day ever.  To know somebody thought so highly of my work just makes all the difference in the world to me.  Finding out about how well I’ve done, makes me feel like all the effort I’ve been putting forth is finally paying off.  There have been some days when I haven’t been sure, when I’ve doubted everything and have wanted to throw in the towel and call it quits.  So often, I feel like my time is spread so thin, I don’t have enough of me to go around, and I feel like I’ve had to let some people down because of it.  I hardly ever put myself first in anything I do, but I’ve had no other choice since I started school this year, and the guilt has been eating me up inside.  Feels like my family suffers because of it and I hate knowing that.  But I also know in my heart that there is a reason behind all of this madness.  I feel like this is leading me down a path that I need to continue to follow.  I’m not sure where this will eventually take me, but I’m really excited to find out.  And I’ve made myself a promise not to give up no matter how hard it gets.  I need to do this and discover exactly what it is that I’m eventually supposed to do.  And maybe in the process, I’ll actually figure out what I want to be when I grow up.  I think that’s a question most of us ask ourselves our whole lives.  It would be so great to finally have an answer for that.

July Writing Prompt Participants

It’s been another great month, and if I’m correct in my thinking, we’ve now gone a whole year doing these together.  So, pat yourself on the back if you been doing these every month since we started.  That’s a very long time to stick with something like this.  Hope you all enjoy this months new prompts which can be found here – August Writing Prompts.  Love you all… Have a great month!  ~M xo

August Writing Prompts

planner-3485976_960_720

Here are the new writing prompts for August.  I got bored one day while stuck at a store that carried paint, and got some of my ideas from their paint swatches.  Hopefully it will turn out to be a very colorful month!  Happy writing! ~M xo

And, if you’re new to the idea of writing with the help of prompts, here’s what I like to do with them…

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.

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 I see some of you are already having trouble figuring out how to do a pingback.  So, to notify me of your post, please copy and paste the URL I’ve listed below somewhere on your post and I’ll receive a notification from you.  Thanks!  https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2018/08/01/august-writing-prompts/
