January 2021 Writing Prompts

Happy New Year, everyone, and welcome to another month of writing prompts! As you’ll notice as you read through the prompts, I decided to do a bit of an aeronautical theme this month. Of course, not every prompt follows this theme, but if you’re familiar with aeronautics, I’m sure you’ll be able to pick out some of the ones that correlate. I figure we all need a chance to escape the past year and fly into the new one with lots of great inspiration. So here’s to all of you, and may this new year be filled with many blessings. Cheers! ~M xo

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.

On rejection…

We will always have days when we feel unaccepted. The world is full of a zillion ways to reject us. But that’s when you just have to be happy for who you are. Nothing else matters as long as you’re satisfied with yourself.

Love…

“Love is sometimes like a burst of molten lava; flowing outward in all directions, and then lingering in the cracks and crevices as it slowly begins to cool. But it’s a dispiriting sight when it loses its bright red luster, becoming instead, a hardened form of magma. There’s just no way to change it back to its original, radiant form.” ~M

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
