PROMPTuesday #67: Two for One

I’m going for two prompts today because I can’t make up my mind. Truth told? Ambivalence follows me in many aspects of my life…and it’s hard for me to settle on just one thing…always (and THAT’S the one constant). So to honor rather than decry my wobbling, I’m bequeathing double prompts. Choose one or do both. (Both would be super cool.)


The first:

A small church brings in a new pastor. He’s fresh out of ministry school and is determined to lead this church to salvation. As he reviews old records, he finds that this little town holds a secret that they don’t want known. What is the secret?


The second:

What is iconic you? Do you have a signature “something” that defines you? Describe it and write why it encapsulates you so well.


Please post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.


And also — First time to PROMPTuesday? Welcome! Read a bit about this weekly writing exercise here.

(Note: The first prompt came to me from somewhere, someone long ago. I can’t recall its origins, but it’s way too good to let slip into nothingness.)

    Hello Family Blogger,

    My name is Sandra Perez Brucker I am a teacher at a new Charter School called Xara Garden School in the Allied Gardens area. I have come across your blog and I it seems like your readers would enjoy learning about our school as an alternative educational environment. It would be wonderful if you could inform your readers about our school so we can have some more exposure to the San Diego community.
    Here is some information about our school:

    The schools of the Xara will bring together the best new ideas in:

    developmental and positive psychology

    neuroscience and brain-based learning

    inquiry-, project- and problem-based learning

    multi-disciplinary, integrated curriculum

    environmental sciences and sustainability

    place-based learning and ecoliteracy

    servant-leadership and service-learning

    multi-lingual, international education

    design, and the physical and digital arts

    Here, it all starts in a garden.

    For more information visit our website:

    We would love to share more about our school with you. If you have any question please feel free to email me at

    I hope that you can inform your readers about our school.
    Thank you for your time!


  2. […] hope I didn’t upset the scales of propriety too much this week with my answers. If I did, well, fuck it. Not to be rude to Debbie or any of her […]
