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.
“Having the potential to be good is not the same as actually being good, but a symphony is always good.” ~M
*I got to go to a symphony last night. The theme was a Scottish fantasy, which featured Brahms, Symphony No. 2 in D major. This picture was taken before everyone was actually there, but you can see still several musicians tuning their instruments. It was quite a lovely night and I was lucky enough to get free tickets to the event.
“We can’t control what others do and how they choose to live their lives, but we can focus on being the very best versions of ourselves. And who knows, our positive actions may just rub off on others. It doesn’t do any harm to at least try, and you might discover some unique things about yourself in the process.” ~M
“We must focus on the beauty of the dance, while we still have the chance. ~M
My quote today was inspired by the following quote. Such powerful words always cause me to reflect upon my own life and its meaning.
This existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds. To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance. A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky, rushing by, like a torrent down a steep mountain.
“My mind gets lost in a million lovely words each day because of such talented writers from all over the world. And I often wonder what each one would think, if they only knew how much my heart swells in adoration.” ~M
