July Writing Prompts

 

sparkler-677774_960_720

Here are the new writing prompts for July.  I hope you’ll enjoy these as much as I enjoyed coming up with them.  Have a great month of writing everyone!  ~M xo

And, if you’re new to the idea of writing with the help of prompts, here’s what I like to do with them…

To begin, 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 listed below.  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!  😉

#MidnightMadness – 5/7/2018

Every morning my girls and I come up with a new writing prompt, and then we proceed to write together for 10 minutes.  Brianna is my 16 yr old and Autumn is my 9 yr old.  Here’s our conversation from a few days ago…

Me – “How about we do the prompt, Aspirations of Autumn?”

Brianna – “Mom… that’s so one dimensional since we already know exactly what Autumn will do when she grows up.”

Me – “🙄😳🤐”

#MidnightMadness – 10/31/2017

Well, I wasn’t going to do another Midnight Madness tonight, but I began to think twice after reading to my daughter from her Bedtime Bible.

Normally this book isn’t too bad, aside from the very glossed over parts about what truly happened in certain stories.  I suppose they figure it’s a children’s book, so they have to keep it somewhat discreet.

However, after reading it tonight, I have finally come to realize just how ill advised this book really is.  And I began to wonder if this is the reason why so many Christians are often left confused on how they should treat other people.

Here’s one of the bits of advice given for today, on “How to Treat Friends…

“If your friend is sad, do not try to cheer him up, that will only make him feel worse.”

Do not try to cheer him up???  What?  I nearly took the book and threw it against the wall!  Thank goodness she wasn’t reading this piece of garbage by herself, and I’m fairly sure we can find a much better book to read next time.  Thankfully we have a whole set of Dr. Seuss!

#MidnightMadness – 10/30/2017

So there I was, reading aloud the features that come with the new iPhone X

“The super retina display dazzles the eyes and employs techniques to precisely follow the curves of the design all the way to the elegantly rounded corners.  The first OLED screen that rises to the standards.  Familiar gestures make navigation natural and intuitive. Instead of pressing a button, a single swipe takes you home from anywhere.  A larger and faster 12MP sensor. A new color filter with Deeper pixels, etc…”

And then my sweet and very innocent 16 yr. old daughter, who obviously picked up on the bolded words above, says to me…

“Mom, I feel like I’m listening to Fifty Shades of Phones.”  😉
