Prompts #8 – Take Me to the Moon

Every day, The Daily Post posts a prompt on their website – a situation or little idea you can use as inspiration to write. Although I didn’t like their explaination, yesterday’s prompt was take me to the moon. This is my interpretation.

“Do not swear by the moon, for she changes constantly. Then your love would also change.”
– William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Over time, the moon has been a mystery to mankind and a source of wonder and imagination. Very often she plays an important part in religions. Today I have for you a selection of quotes, poems and artwork inspired by the moon.

Prompts #6 – No Cliffhangers

Every day, The Daily Post posts a prompt on their website – a situation or little idea you can use as inspiration to write. Yesterday’s prompt was no cliffhangers, and this is my interpretation.

No Cliffhangers
Write a post about the topic of your choice, in whatever style you want, but make sure to end it with “…and all was well with the world.”

Once upon a time there was a young woman. She liked her life very much. She had a nice job, she had a few very good friends, she loved her parents and she had the best of housemates: her cat Jojo. Her name was Susie.

Prompts #5 – Favourite Song

Today’s blog is based on a prompt, as are most daily blogs of mine, but today I turned to Reddit for a prompt, beause I didn’t like The Daily Post’s one. Today’s prompt is Favourite Song and this is mine.

Favourite Song
Write a story based on your favourite song. Other people have to guess which song it is.

the king

I pull up my knees up to my chest and lean against the wooden door. It is still dark out, and as long as it is dark, I am safe.
I am good with dark. Always have been. I pull it around me like a jacket, and everytime I put it on it fits better, becomes more and more a part of me and less and less something I can just take off and leave behind. If I would ever want to.

Prompts #3 – Handwritten

Every day, The Daily Post posts a prompt on their website – a situation or little idea you can use as inspiration to write. Today’s prompt is handwritten, and this is my interpretation.

Handwritten
When was the last time you wrote something by hand? What was it?

If you want me to be precise, the last time I wrote something by hand was yesterday evening, when I wrote down a few things in my agenda that I needed to remember. If you want me to take the word ‘write’ more poetically, the last time I wrote something was two weeks ago, when I wrote a letter to a friend I hadn’t seen in a very, very long time. (To be honest, I haven’t had the courage yet to actually send the letter, but still. I wrote it.) If you want to know the last time I wrote a LOT, that was when I made my final exams, May this year.

Prompts #2 – Worlds Colliding

Every day, The Daily Post posts a prompt on their website – a situation or little idea you can use as inspiration to write. Today’s prompt is worlds colliding, and this is my interpretation.

Skyfall is where we start
A thousand miles and poles apart
Where worlds collide and days are dark

The first that came to my mind when I saw “worlds colliding” were these lines from Adele’s Skyfall. Which has nothing to do with The Daily Posts’ explanation of worlds colliding, which is why I didn’t include that explanation in this post.

Prompts #1 – The Young and the Rested

Every day, The Daily Post posts a prompt on their website – a situation or little idea you can use as inspiration to write. Today’s prompt is the young and the rested, and this is my interpretation.

The Young and the Rested
When was the last time you felt truly rejuvenated and energized? What made you feel that way?

Over time, I have found out that I don’t like doing nothing. I know, it sounds weird. And of course, I do like doing nothing, but it doesn’t really make me feel good. It doesn’t make me feel rested. It doesn’t make me feel energized. It just makes me feel bad about myself, it makes me feel like I haven’t achieved anything. Like I have just wasted another hour/day/week of my precious time on this earth.
