May Writing Prompt Participants

may2

I was so impressed by the response this month from all of you who participated.  I really enjoyed reading all of your lovely creations.  I was thrilled once again by Walt’s compilation, moved by the ever beautiful words of Dorinda, captivated by Michael’s fantasy fiction adventure, intrigued by the variety of stories from Cosistories, enlightened by The Bag Lady, laughing along with Sarah and her sweet sense of humor, resonating with June Ann’s words, and inspired by Playing with words.  I can’t wait to see what all of you come up with for June!  😉  ~M xoxo

January Writing Prompt Participants

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.  ❤

December Writing Prompt Participants

writing-828911__340

Happy New Year everyone!  December just seemed to whoosh right by and I’ve had a really hard time keeping up with everything.  Seems like the rest of you did too, especially by the way this month ended with very few people participating in the prompts.  However, Dorinda Duclos kept at it again, and managed to be the only one to complete every prompt this month.  I promise to try a bit harder to do more of these this month.  We’ll see how far I get!  😉  Good luck to the rest of you!  The new prompts for January can be found here:  January Writing Prompts.

November Writing Prompt Participants

I can hardly believe it’s December!  Where did November go?  Hmmm…. that could make a good poem.  Don’t you think?  Perhaps that’ll be what I write about today.  I never know where my ideas will come from, and I’m sure most of you don’t either.

It was incredible to see such a great response this month from all of you.  I made it my job to not attempt a single one of these prompts, and chose instead to work on some other projects that I needed to get finished.  Mainly my book!  Which is coming together quite nicely and will hopefully be ready to publish in the coming months.

Congratulations to Dorinda and Michael, you were the top two participants this month, having been the only ones to complete every prompt.  That is unless I missed a few links,  Tessa was certainly very close as well.  I had a bit of a hard time keeping track, as some of you weren’t linking the posts correctly.  So this month, if you’d like to participate, please have the link on your post go directly to the prompts page.  If it just goes to my main page, I won’t receive notice of it.  Michael and Grant, I’m speaking to both of you!  Lol… 😉

Really hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I’m looking forward to Christmas myself, and all the wonderful things that come along with that.  I get to see all of my girls here for Christmas this year and I couldn’t ask for a better present.  If you haven’t been to the December prompts page, here’s the link.  Hope you all have a really great month of writing!  ~M xo

November Writing Prompts #NaNoWriMo

writing-828911__340

Well, we’re finally into November!  Can you believe it?  And since many of you are taking part in NaNoWriMo this month, including myself, I wanted to give you an idea on how you can use these prompts to help during your novel writing endeavors.

First of all, I’d like you to think about your morning routine.  What gets you moving in the morning?  What wakes you up and gets your mind motivated to write?  If you happen to struggle with motivation like so many of us do, here’s a simple thing that can help inspire you to write each and every day.  I do this with my daughters every morning, and it really helps to spark the flow of creativity.

Begin by settling 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 that novel which is just begging to be written!

And just to let you all know, I will still try to write a few poems this month, but will mostly be focusing on writing my novel.  If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit my new blog where I’m now posting all of my poetry, then please stop by for a visit one of these days and have a look!  Here’s where I can be found… Her Writing Haven.

Good luck everyone… and let the writing begin!  ~M xo

#MidnightMadness – 3/24/2017

mobile-phone-1990126_960_720

The phone call after the writer has just poured out all of their deep-seated emotions and posted them on their blog.

 

Caller- “Hey, are you ok?”

Writer- “Yeah, why?”

Caller- “Well, I just read your blog post.”

Writer- “And?”

Caller- “Well you sounded sort of depressed.”

Writer- “Yeah, so?”

Caller- “Well it just sort of worried me.”

Writer- “Why?”

Caller- “Well, because you sounded so sad.”

Writer- “Can I ask you a question?”

Caller- “Sure, ask away…”

Writer- “When’s the last time you released all of your inner angst and just let it go.”

Caller- “Oh me? I never do that.”

Writer- “And how do you feel keeping all of those emotions bottled up inside of you?”

Caller- “Well, not too good I suppose.”

Writer- “Well then, shouldn’t I be more worried about you at the moment than you are about me?”

Caller- “Hmmm, yes I suppose… probably.”

Writer- “Well then, I think you’ve answered your question. Godspeed my good friend. Hope you’ll be okay.”

Caller- “Oh yeah… right, hmmm….. goodbye.”

He said, “Cool.” Cool with a period at the end…

So my 19 yr old daughter just came running to me and said, “Mom!  He said, “Cool.” Cool with a period at the end!  She is a writer like me, hence the problem with just a period at the end of Cool and not an exclamation point like there should have been.  Now she strongly believes that her boyfriend is going to break up with her tonight, for lack of the exclamation point in his response to her text.  Oh the woes of life these days…  It really doesn’t get any better than this!  I’m sorry but I can’t stop laughing…  🙂  Does this make me a bad parent?
