I looked up at the night sky and thought of the stories he used to tell about the stars, the constellations, and it seemed sad that I couldn’t remember a single one of them. There’s a string of stars called Orion’s Belt, and I think Orion is known as a hunter, but I’m not sure of what. It’s funny to think that, because in a way I’m a hunter too, only I hunt people.
Keeping it simple today because I have a lot to do this week. That and I procrastinated yesterday instead of working on something more complex. I do think I was clever in using page 101 with my book backdrop of 101 Fairy Tales. (Pat myself on the back for that one!) I'm intrigued by my starter sentence. I think it will lead to an interesting story. The goal is to write it this week. When I do, I'll share it in the comments! Feel free to share yours in the comments as well! Happy Writing!
What is my story, you ask? Well you may not believe it, but I was young once. So full of life. I stand here a ruined skeleton of what I once was. Once, I was full of love and happiness. Once, I held so much joy within my walls that I nearly burst.
I'm going to try something new today. Why? Because some days we all feel a little (or a lot) uninspired. On those days it's hard to keep writing. What usually helps me is a writing prompt. Here's hoping that you can come here and find inspiration to get you out of your writing funk.
I just so happened to snap this picture on a drive yesterday. As usual, I was thinking about how much I love where I live. Then I had a thought. What if someone had never, ever seen a mountain before? Not even in a picture.
So here is the prompt for today: Imagine you (or a make-believe person) have never seen mountains before. Ever. You wake up one day and see this. Write as much as you can in 10 minutes! Ready, set, go!
