all written for fun,
before each day was done.
But now those words
have become quite few,
and time is needed
for my words to renew.
So I’m taking a break
to let my inspiration build;
I hope when I get back,
you’ll be quite thrilled.
Until that day,
stay encouraged and blessed,
and I’ll be back
after taking a rest.
In the meantime, go back
and see what you can find.
I promise to return someday
to tickle your mind.

I’ve devoted nearly five years of my aging brain to writing prompts here on WordPress, and I need a break. I hope any of you who need a bit of inspiration will go back and do some of the writing prompts from past years. I’m sure I will pop in here from time to time to post a random word or two. Until then, you can find me writing regularly on my other blog, www.herwritinghaven.com
See you there! ~M xo
Welcome to another month of story starters. Please use these prompts to inspire you to write about anything you like, whether a fictional or non-fictional story, poem, narrative, journal entry, etc. Just be creative! And be sure to leave me a link or a pingback so that I can find all of your lovely writings. Have a great month, everyone! ~M xo
Week 1 (April 1-7) – The tree responded to the touch of his hand.
Week 2 (April 8-14) – Time was precious and neither one forgot.
Week 3 (April 15-21) – The words painted a picture.
Week 4 (April 22-30) – Black, white and remnants of gray.
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.
