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!  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

Wow!  I’m honestly wondering if we have a new record for the amount of prompted posts done this month.  Thank you to all of you who participated.  I truly believe that your writing gets better every month.  A lot of your stories have taken me by surprise, many of which I think should be turned into full-fledged novels eventually.

Here’s my favorite post of the month.  https://malandally.co.uk/2019/01/29/slipping-through-the-seams-there-was-no-turning-back/ Written by, When I think of something snappy.  Aka, Elder Shredder (Who also writes for Prompted).  There are some really great posts on his site and this story was just amazing to me.  So go take a look if you haven’t had a chance to read any of his work.  I think you’ll be amazed as well.  😉  ~M

January Writing Prompts

new-years-eve-3891889_1280

Happy New Year everyone!  It’s hard to believe another year is gone.  I decided to team up this month with Dorinda Duclos to create some awesome prompts for all of you.  She wrote half of them, so let’s see if any of you can figure out which one’s she wrote verses the one’s I wrote.  I think it was sort of funny how we both had similar ideas.  Please leave some feedback and let me know if you are enjoying the longer prompts.  If you’d like me to go back to writing the shorter ones, I’d be happy to oblige.  Enjoy!  ~M

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

January Writing Prompts

  1. A lifetime of laughter could have saved them all.
  2. As she walked to the end of the wooden boards, the stars spoke to her.
  3. Every inch of his body sensed her presence.
  4. A brilliant light shined from the other side of the lake.
  5. Milky white peaks charmed their senses.
  6. Beyond the forest glen, the realization struck her.
  7. She read aloud to the sounds of crashing waves.
  8. A distant shore was all that remained.
  9. Swept away with the wind, her hair looked a mess.
  10. The boat was empty, except for one lone fish.
  11. Prepared for battle, she made her presence known.
  12. The stone path through the woods lead her nowhere.
  13. The answer rested quietly inside the belly of the broomstick.
  14. The storm raged on without any hope of being saved.
  15. And as she walked away, she took it all with her.
  16. She was nothing but common until she donned the mask.
  17. Fate took a turn for the worse at the fork in the road.
  18. The pebbles devoured the succulents, one tasty morsel at a time.
  19. One last yank then a pull and the landing was clear.
  20. A braver attempt had never before been seen.
  21. The glittery gem held all the secrets of the past.
  22. It was a ludicrous request but one that drew his attention.
  23. Reflections in the water completed the circle.
  24. The universe just wasn’t big enough for both of them.
  25. The recording was all the proof they needed.
  26. Time was running out and his watch had stopped dead.
  27. She did exactly what she was told never to do.
  28. As they chatted away, he needed to find a way out.
  29. Slipping between the seams, there was no turning back.
  30. A simple reason was all she needed.
  31. And completely by mistake, the switch was made.

It’s been another great month, and I was really quite surprised to see just how many of you kept up with the prompts despite the busy holiday season.  My favorite post of the month was, A Mirror Image of Who he Once Was, by Dead Deer.  His post felt so relatable, and was very cleverly written.  I hope all of you will check it out!  Thanks to everyone who participated this month.  Have a very Happy New Year!  ~M xo

December Writing Prompts

  1. In between the clover and the dampened earth.
  2. A mirror image of who he once was.
  3. The truth sucked the life right out of his chest.
  4. Had the map really changed, or had he read it wrong to begin with?
  5. A blanket, soft and warm, with the faintest hint of her perfume.
  6. Deep down in the dungeon…
  7. Two halves of a dress, frayed and worn.
  8. Consumed by fear, he stood as still as the dark night above him.
  9. And as the moon exploded…
  10. She dressed, then wept as the music faded away.
  11. Destiny awaited, they had no other choice.
  12. Holding her gaze briefly from across the room, he knew…
  13. Transfixed by the lights, she never noticed he was there.
  14. A steady breeze guided them along.
  15. Keeping his hands in his pockets, he nervously played with his keys.
  16. And suddenly the door began to melt against the brass frame.
  17. Was it a glitch, or just his imagination?
  18. Droplets of sweat fell to his lap as the blade glistened.
  19. Venom poured from his eyes, poisoned tears.
  20. He drank the last drop, then plummeted into the sea.
  21. Decompression arrived quickly after the window blew out.
  22. Heavenly creatures featured boldly in her dreams.
  23. She reeked of sugary sweets, and her teeth gave away her disguise.
  24. Fishnet stockings were a real nice surprise.
  25. An eruption of presents was all that could be seen.
  26. A half-eaten muffin and a spoon, were all that remained.
  27. She snickered as she ran, until she noticed what was behind her.
  28. The last bell chimed and not even the crickets could be heard.
  29. The floating orb hovered over the painting above the hearth.
  30. Planter boxes of peculiar looking pansies, lined the odd shaped path.
  31. Entombed inside the jar of honey, the key could clearly be seen.

So, I’ve realized that a lot of you are having issues with pingbacks, and I’m very sorry if I have missed any of your lovely posts because of it.  I am trying my best to keep up with everybody, but I must say, it is getting harder and harder to do that.  Please message me at herwritinghaven@gmail.com if you continue to have issues, and I will do my best to walk you through the process.

And there’s another thing I’d like to mention this month about the prompts.  It seems that a lot of you are trying to keep up with the prompts by doing them in order on a daily basis.  But for this month, I’d really like it if you didn’t do them in order.  I want everyone to look through the list and pick and choose which ones they want to do, and please don’t feel like you have to do them all!  You’ll just feel defeated if you can’t keep up, and I don’t want anyone to feel that way.

Another thing that you might want to try this month, is to print the prompts out, cut them apart into thin strips of paper, and then fold them and place them in a jar.  It’s so much fun to do this.  You can then reach inside each day, and pull out a random prompt to write about.  I have a jar full of writing prompts that sits on my desk for this very purpose, and I find them to be very inspiring.

Whatever you end up deciding to do, all you really need is 10 minutes.  Here’s one of the best method’s I know of…

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.

Please just enjoy the writing process this month.  And never feel like you have to stick to a list of rules with my prompts.  These are for you my blogging friends, do with them as you please.  😉

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!

One last thing… don’t forget to pingback your posts!  ~M xo

I was so impressed by the response this month from all of you who participated.  I really enjoyed reading all of your lovely creations.  I was thrilled once again by Walt’s compilation, moved by the ever beautiful words of Dorinda, captivated by Michael’s fantasy fiction adventure, intrigued by the variety of stories from Cosistories, enlightened by The Bag Lady, laughing along with Sarah and her sweet sense of humor, resonating with June Ann’s words, and inspired by Playing with words.  I can’t wait to see what all of you come up with for June!  😉  ~M xoxo
