So how did the prompt go? Did it help you get started writing? As writers, we can come up with some pretty great reasons to NOT write and one of those is we don't know WHAT to write about. Using a prompt is a good way of putting that excuse to bed. Now let's get writing:
Write about a childhood incident that is still alive to you today. It might be something humorous, terrifying or life changing. Put yourself there and tell us all about it.
It was the biggest pumpkin in the patch, and it seemed to be moving.
And now for the question of the week:
Do you have a favorite time or place to write? Where? When? Why?
My most productive time to write is first thing in the morning, before "life" creeps in. That means before I get dressed, before I eat anything, and definitely before I answer the phone. And I have to make sure I do NOT check my e-mails. Once I do that, I've lost the momentum for writing.
The place is my bed. I grab my laptop, prop my pillows behind me and start writing. It is where my writing takes off and it is a safe, comfortable place. Often, Sally (my miniature bull terrier) is laying under the blankets beside me; Eli (our rescue dog) is laying on the pillow beside me and Mary (our other rescue) is laying on a pillow on the floor beside the bed. They are all sleeping and I'm writing. What could be better?
So tell me what is your when? where? and why? for writing.
