SORRY FOR MY ABSENCE

I apologize for not posting of late, but I have been ill. At the moment I seem to have a case of insomnia and have had 3 hours of sleep in the last three days. I’m exhausted, lol. I do have some great things planned for the blog; in April I plan on participating in the A-Z blog challenge. Over 1,000 bloggers have already signed up, and it sounds like great fun. if you want to check it out, the address is; http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/. I really hope you all will enjoy the prompts during the month of April…only 17 days to go.

A reminder about writing with prompts…you can write anything that comes into your mind. Don’t over think it. Also, don’t take time to correct your writing during your set time. Another idea that I often use is to utilize a character from one of my books and write the prompt around her/him, describing what it is like to them.

Ok, enough about everything else. Here is today’s prompt: write about insomnia. Lack of sleep can make some people do crazy things. Happy writing.

STORMY WEATHER

TORNADO DAMAGE IN HARRISBURG, IL 2/29/2012

As many of you know severe storms wreaked havoc on the Midwest and South on 2/29/2012. The above picture is from an E-4 tornado that devastated Harrisburg, IL, which is about 60 miles from where I live. One young woman lost her life in this particular tornado. I ask that you pray for those that were affected by these severe “Acts of God”. If you don’t believe in prayer, then please keep this and other communities in your thoughts and wish them well as they rebuild their lives.
Today’s prompt is to write about a storm. It can be any kind of storm; a tornado, a hurricane, an earthquake, a snowstorm, anything you wish to write about. You can even be the storm itself if you wish.
Remember you can write non-fiction, fiction, poetry, or anything that pops into your mind. The important thing is that you just keep writing for your established amount of time. Happy writing.

FIRST PROMPT

HAPPY LEAP YEAR 2012

Happy Leap Day 2012. I’ve decided that our first writing prompt today should have something to with Leap Day. Today, I am giving you two choices to write about since Leap Year only happens every four years.

Write about someone you know or imagine a person that is born on leap day and the effect(s) it has on their life. Do they only celebrate their birthday every four years? Do they not care about the leap day at all?

Do you have a favorite leap year memory from past years? Remember to include your six senses in your writing. Let us feel what you felt at the time.

Please feel free to share your posts and or any ideas this prompt created for you. Happy writing everyone.

WELCOME TO WRITING PROMPTS EVERY DAY

Hello and welcome to WRITING PROMPTS EVERY DAY.  I have been a writer for most of my life, starting when I was about 9 years old. I love the feeling I get when I create a new story, article, chapter, poem, actually anything. It creates a rush to my senses as I hope it does yours.

I love starting off my writing day with a prompt; something to get the creative juices flowing. The key to writing with a prompt is to just let go. Read the prompt, set a time limit for yourself. I suggest 15 to 20 minutes. Next just start writing. Write whatever comes into your mind, even if it doesn’t make sense to you at the time. I like to also use my “senses”, sight, smell, taste, feel, hearing, when writing from a prompt. Whatever you create in that time frame is okay, do not judge yourself. Also, I forgot to mention that your writing can take any form you wish it to take. It can be non-fiction, fiction, poetry…anything you feel as you write. Happy writing today

I hope that you will enjoy my prompts and pass this site along to your fellow writers and friends. Also feel free to post what you have written, or any suggestions you may have for me and the blog. Happy writing to you all.
