Writer's Workshop Prompts:
I posted all of the prompts this week because I can't decide which one to write about. Hmm...
1.) You’re so vain. You probably think this post is about you…don’t you?
This one could be fun if it wasn't for the fact that I've decided to be very careful about what stories I tell from now on for this very reason. I don't want people thinking I'm talking about them. I don't want to misrepresent myself or anyone else, so I guess this one's out.
2.) Tell us about your trip!
This is the prompt I should pick because I just got back from an amazing trip to my precious Valley of the Sun (it was cold again--boo) where I attended a writer's conference. FABULOUS. I had the best time there, loved EVERYTHING about it, and learned SO MUCH. Yes I did. Of course I didn't take a camera because I'm lame like that, but I did get a copy of "These is my Words" signed by author Nancy Turner, got two books in the "Far World Series" signed by author J. Scott Savage and got my copy of "Wings" signed by Aprilynne Pike. Fun. These three authors also taught me a great deal during their presentations (Nancy Turner was my favorite) along with a fascinating class about learning to use the subconscious mind taught by counselor, Helen Bair. I'll share more about that after I finish reading her book (also a signed copy) LOVE.
3.) A difficult conversation.
I've had many difficult conversations in my life. I shudder now just thinking about them, but I'm thinking I'd better refrain from sharing anything that I might regret in the morning (even if they would make great stories). I will tell you though, that one of the most difficult conversations I have had is when my brother-in-law called to tell me that my father-in-law had died. "Dad's dead." He told me.
I now know why we are told to sit down before receiving news like this because I literally fell to the ground.
4.) Can you almost stop time with your words? Write about the fastest ride you ever had, but describe only a few seconds of it…as though it was happening in slow motion.(writingfix.com)
I don't think I can write about this one at all. I hate fast rides. HATE THEM. When forced on one, the entire ride feels like slow motion to me. Slow, TORTUROUS, motion that will never, ever end. Yuck.
5.) Who blind-sided you? Write about a time someone caught you totally off guard.(writingfix.com)
For this one, refer to my answer to prompt 3. So not fun.
So what do you think I should write on?
Oh wait, it looks like I'm done.
