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

Well, we had another great month of writing and the response was even greater than last month.  We had a few extra people join in on the fun this time around, and I want to congratulate, Dorinda Duclos, Grant Fenton, and Tessa Smeigh for completing every single prompt!  If you haven’t had the opportunity to read their work, please take a moment to visit their websites.

Like last month, I’ve included the links to all the participating prompt writers below.  I apologize ahead of time if I missed adding some of the links.  It’s getting harder to keep track now, with so many of you participating.  So, please let me know if I happened to miss any, and I’ll be happy to make the correction and add your link to the list.

You all did a great job and I feel so privileged to be part of a community of such amazing and wonderful writers!  I hope you’ll continue to write with me for the remainder of this year and into the next.  Much love to all of you!  ~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 – 10/11/2017

I was busy writing in my office tonight, when my little Auti charged through the door and announced that she had a huge surprise for me.  She proceeded to drag me out of my office, through the living room, and then stopped me right in front of my bedroom door.  I was told to shut my eyes, and was then led into my bedroom where our family computer resides.  I was finally told to open my eyes and have a peek.  This is what was on the computer screen, written just for me…

Dear mommy I love you and I want to say you’re the best I love you and you love me every day is the best with you and I think you think the same thing I hope you’re doing well so I love you hopefully you enjoyed reading this as I loved writing this have a wonderful night from: autumn ;-D

This was just the sweetest note I could ever receive!  I think perhaps we need to work on her punctuation a bit, but there was no way I was going to point that out when her big blue eyes were staring up at me, looking for approval.  She’s currently in my bedroom again, writing poetry and yelling for me to come and take a look.  So I mustn’t keep her waiting!  Sounds like it’s a Christmas poem this time!  Lol… 😉
