I’m a big fan of using music for writerly inspiration, and so I thought I’d try that here, with you.
To evoke your own inspiration, listen to the song here, then write the pictures that appear in your mind. You don’t need to craft an entire paragraph, although of course you can. Rather, let the images spill from you, write impressions, poetry, vignettes, whatever pops into your head.
Maybe a story will emerge.
No rules today, except two: let yourself go and do it in 10 minutes.
UPDATED: Hey, it’s been exactly three months since I kicked PROMPTuesdays off! So…as I promised in April, it’s time for a giveaway, like I said here:
SO, at the end of three months, I will put those that have been be-prompted the most consistently (3 times and more) into a hat or Tinkerbell box and have Toots or Booger (probably Toots, Booger’s fingers are not to be trusted) and pull a name to receive something totally cool and awesome
And that’s all true, except for the “be-prompted the most consistently” part. What the bungholio does that mean anyway? “Be-prompted?” Is that even a word? (Something which typically does not deter the Momma from using it.) Also, it’s used in the passive tense. YUCK. Still. I’ll automatically enter you in the giveaway for leaving your PROMPT or comment today. If you didn’t do the PROMPT, you can still leave a comment to enter. The prize? How about either a mix CD or a $20 Amazon gift certificate? Your choice. AND I’ll even throw in not getting my feelings hurt if you don’t pick the mix CD.
