Friends

 

A writing prompt for today…

Friends.

Where would we be without them? In the last couple of weeks I’ve observed three generations of situations where true friends have supported others in need . . . I’m sure there must be a story in that :)

Decisions

Today’s writing prompt:

Which road?

Sometimes there is no right or wrong! But the decisions can be agonizing :(

Hope the prompt inspires a great story or poem.

 

Windy Weather

A writing prompt for today:

It’s an ill wind . . .

Yes, it’s windy here and has been for several days :(

I can hear it now whistling around the corner of the house.

Writing prompts

 

My apologies for the lack of writing prompts over the past weeks…I’ve had a break and will now endeavour to provide them at regular intervals again :)

Prompt for today:

I think I’m beginning to understand.

I hope it inspires some great poems and stories :)

Along came a spider…

Thank you everyone, for all the kind comments and emails about my stories on the ABC 500 project site. I really appreciate it and am hoping I can do a lot more writing in 2015. If you haven’t seen them, the links are below:

Today’s writing prompt:

She slid her toes into the leg of her jeans and out ran a . . . spider!

Yes…it happened this morning :(

Okay, it was only the tiniest of spiders and didn’t cause any harm but I thought it would be a great writing prompt.

Imagine a HUGE hairy spider with big eyes and an evil grin . . .

And, remember after drying your jeans on a hot summer day . . . give them a good shake before putting them on :) Just in case!

As the year draws to a close…

I hope the blog title makes for an inspiring prompt :)

The end of my 2014 has slipped in a couple more hiccups . . . this year is determined to go out with a loud crash and bang!

Thank you to everyone for all the kind messages and emails. They help . . . they really do! And my thoughts are with all who are also experiencing tough times.

As my years draw to a close I have been catching up with submissions and correspondence and will be posting more competition results in a few days.

And I have also written a couple of stories, something I haven’t done for quite a while. You can read them on the ABC Open project:
