Hope everyone had a very Happy Halloween! Enjoy the prompts! ~M xo
Butterfly wings and bear paws
Second floor fiascos
Bought and sold
Too many tacos
Sounds of the city
Snap, crackle, crunch
In his defense
Fried ice cream
The realm of reason
Lost and lingering
A battle of wits
The futureless future
Diligent and debatable
Dog days of never
Wild and unwilling
A delicate decree
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.
I want to thank everyone who participated this month. I ended up with 5 pages of entry links, so I’d say it was another great turn out. Dorinda Duclos is still in the lead, along with Sarah C. and I’m excited to be able to share the new prompts with all of you tomorrow. ❤
“A poem’s meaning is often lost among a slew of unimaginative eyes, for the true intent and heart of the poet is rarely discernible. And those who have the rare opportunity to discover the meaning of the poet’s incredulous words, are often deeply moved and sometimes even changed, by those delicately written sentiments, which often resonate and intermingle within the heart of the reader himself.” ~M
As many of you have probably noticed, I often create writing prompts for myself and try to incorporate those prompts into my daily writing. So this month, I decided to create some writing prompts for all of you to use as well. I plan to try and use as many of these as I can myself. I will be posting the results of my writing efforts on my other blog. And for those of you who have not visited my new blog yet, here’s the link. Please tag me in your post if you decide to participate. I’d love to see what you’ve written. Have a very blessed September! ~M xoxo
Anyone interested in doing Larps – Live Action Role Play? Here’s a link to one that is going on in Poland. This would be the ultimate experience for a true Harry Potter fan, even though the event is not affiliated with J.K. Rowling, Scholastic Books, Bloomsbury Publishing, or Warner Bros. This looks like it could be more fun than going to Universal Studios. For more information and to sign up for updates, go here.
