Writers like to talk about writing. They like to write about writing too. Most of the time it's worthwhile. In my writing group we often employed a feature where someone would "share" something about a writer, or an excerpt of writing that resonated with them. This "share' could be anything, even a bio of a writer or a favorite poem. It all helps to keep folks thinking critically.
So it was with similar interest that I somewhat reluctantly clicked a link that offered a daily writing prompt. Even if I didn't write for 10 minutes a day based on the suggested prompt, I figured it's be a good thing.
I'm always interested in writing prompts. I collect them on occasion.
So far I've written about accordions and been asked to consider what people say when they are uncomfortable. Today the prompt is to simply write a scene about goggles. Don't think I need to do that, although I will tell you the last time I tried on a pair of goggles I discovered something rather important for me who would snorkel or scuba dive. That revelation is the fact that facial hair, especially a mustache really affects the seal you get. The more the facial hair, the weaker the seal the more water leaks into your mask.
Onward: I suspect each delivered writing prompt will elicit a scene or instance in my mind. Those that actually get developed will depend on how intense or significant my reaction will be. I plan to let a few of these jumpstarts sit a bit as well. Sometimes the initial reaction is not the best one; sometimes it is. What remains solid is that al prompts elicit something and it's time well spent.
