"As I walked through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place where was a Den, and I laid me down in that place to sleep: and as I slept, I dreamed a dream."

Cynthia threw the last mug that the cupboard held. She had much to be angry about.

"YOU SON-OF-A-BANANA BOAT CAPTAIN!" she screeched on the top of her voice. "How the hell could you?"

Her rant continued for what seemed like five minutes, when in actuality it was more like ten.

J.P. had no response to her tirade; he didn't move a muscle. He was totally unconscious.

"If you think that you're just going to lay there bleeding, you have another guess coming!" Cynthia wound down. "GET UP!"

J.P. started to stir...

Who Needs Speed?

Life goes by in a hurry.
What do we miss in the process?
Write about something you really notice when you finally slow down.

Begin at the End

Start with a story ending – your own, a famous one, one you’ve read recently. Then wave your magic wand pen, and change it. What could have happened? No rules, no limits. After all, every ending is a new beginning. What happens now…and how does it “end?”

In Need? Indeed!

Friends walk with you.
If they are still there at the end of your journey, they are friends indeed!
Write a vignette from that timeline.

Fairy Tale Ending

For today, pick one of your favorite (or least favorite) Fairy Tales and re-write it.  Maybe you will change the characters and the story line.  Perhaps the characters will be the same but the story willl have a completely different twist.  Whichever direction you go here... have fun with this one!

It floats. It flies. It soars. It sings. Emily Dickinson called it the feathered thing.

For many of us, today is all about hope. And whether or not this day holds any meaning for you, we can all use a little glimmer of it.

If you hope to write today: Write about a hopeful day. Or a day devoid of hope. Or the hope of days to come. Hope you enjoy writing.

Sweet Dreams

It’s your computer. It contains all of your programs and your files. It knows where you go surfing. But, you have left your computer on and walked away from it. It has gone into the sleep mode. What is it dreaming about? Will it sleep surf? Where will it go and what will it do with all of your information? How will you wake it up and restore normalcy to your online world?
