Don't Even Get Me Started...
February 19, 2019 at 11:59pm

Big Hearts
February 12, 2019 at 11:59pm
PROMPT Since we’re so near Valentine’s Day, what does “to have a big heart” mean to you? The obvious meaning or something more perhaps? A big heart can simply mean just that: a large, blood-pumping organ -- either large because of working in a large body or the not-so-good option of having an enlarged heart, which is a health problem. Or it can mean having a great capacity for loving, caring, and giving. It can also mean an assortment of cho... [Read more]
Memories Of Good And Evil
February 11, 2019 at 11:48pm
PROMPT Prompt: After visiting the museum at Auschwitz, journalist Sigrid Rausing writes: “Afterward, I wanted to burn my clothes. Shower and wash my hair and brush my teeth and throw away my shoes. I wanted to get rid of every trace of Auschwitz, as though I had never been there.” {x-link:https://www.theparisreview.org/blog/2019/02/05/the-museum-at-auschwitz/}https://www.theparisreview.org/blog/2019/02/05/the-museum-at-auschwitz/{/x-link} Can you relate to Sigrid...

When Those Lyrics Hit Home
February 3, 2019 at 11:55pm
PROMPT How do you develop your characters typically? In Writer's Digest Cassandra Lipp suggests an interesting approach. She suggests to research for your protagonist by listening to poetry or music on youtube as a source to help develop your character? These poetic verses or notes could inspire your character in ways you hadn't thought about. What do you think? This is very true. A poem or song can shed light on a lot of things, and one of thos...

King & Lennon Combo
January 30, 2019 at 11:59pm
PROMPT Life is what happens when you have dreams and are busy making plans. What do you think this means? This is what you get when you cross the wise words of Martin Luther King with the wise words of John Lennon. Your plans, in this case, aren't necessarily other plans. Please check out: Written By For: (Art by ) Welcome 2 my neighborhood in Blog City where I live On The Corner of ... [Read more]
A Love Note
January 29, 2019 at 11:41pm
PROMPT What is a “loveless life” for you? Which kinds of love? Can anyone live loveless? When I read the prompt, this song came to mind: {embed:https://youtu.be/Tdx6lLvvRyg} I believe it would be an indescribably miserable existence to live without any kind of love at all, and I can't imagine it. In fact, I don't believe that there IS such a thing as living a loveless life because God loves us even if we don't realize it. Yet, ... [Read more]
Spiritual Trilogy
January 24, 2019 at 11:58pm
PROMPT If you could only use music to describe yourself to someone, what song would it be and why? If you can add the youtube link so we can hear it too. This song here is my prayer: To see Jesus more clearly...To love Him more dearly...To follow Him more nearly...Day By Day. This, to me, is the key to living a quality life! In the play and movie, Godspell, Jesus and His disciples were energized and left life brighter wherever they went. They liv... [Read more]
About Dem Bones...
January 23, 2019 at 11:54pm
PROMPT "To succeed in life you need three things: a wish bone, a back bone and a funny bone." Reba McEntire Do you agree? A wish bone = the ability to dream big dreams. A back bone = standing up for yourself as well as standing for something so you won't fall for anything. A funny bone = a good sense of humor -- something you need to get you through life. Reba gets no disagreement from me. Written By For: (Ar... [Read more]
When It Comes To Retorts, I'm Not Too Shabby (Part One)
January 21, 2019 at 11:47pm
PROMPT A retort is a sharp or wittily biting reply to an aggressive remark. Is there such a thing as the art of retort, and are you good at it? Are there any instances of it that you can recall either in your life or those that you have witnessed? When it comes to retorts, I'm not too shabby. I'm going to make this Part One, and you can go to and will find out more about my retorts as well as the retorts of a few others. I'm go... [Read more]
If I'd Planned Better...
January 19, 2019 at 11:58pm
PROMPT Have you set a writing plan for 2019? If not why not? Do you feel planning makes you more productive or less productive? ...I would have had more time to elaborate on this. Seriously, I'm really working on getting caught up and being more regular about planning. 2019 is as good of a time as any for this...

Four Guiding Principles
January 17, 2019 at 11:49pm
PROMPT "My guiding principles in life are to be honest, genuine, thoughtful and caring." Prince William Do you agree with Prince William? If England's Rose (The Queen Of Hearts) is getting to watch over her sons from the other side of Eternity (and I believe she is), she would be so proud of both of them, as they both strive to be honest, genuine, thoughtful, and caring. Of course, I agree with Prince William as those are the guiding princi... [Read more]
An Avid & Eclectic Reader
January 15, 2019 at 11:26pm
PROMPT “I had read with equal voracity the ‘good books’ in the library and the ‘low-class material’ in pulp fiction. What was it that influenced me in my writing, then? I’m sorry. It was the pulp fiction.” Isaac Asimov, from I, Asimov If pulp fiction influenced Asimov the most, did any unusual or unexpected event, experience, or type of reading also influence your writing? And are your reading choices eclectic or specific? My reading choi... [Read more]
The Prompts That Surround Us
January 14, 2019 at 11:41pm
PROMPT “Anytime you get two people in a room, who disagree about anything, the time the day, there is a scene to be written. That’s what I look for.” Aaron Sorkin Does a situation like what Aaron Sorkin describes upset you or do you take it as a chance to write it in a scene or a story? For that matter, can you think of similar negative situations you have used or plan to use in your writing? The way I look at things, life is full of stories wait... [Read more]
The Barn Will Go On Living...
January 11, 2019 at 11:03pm
PROMPT John Gardner's The Art of Fiction has an interesting third person limited POV exercise. Let's give it a try- "Try describing a barn from the point of view of a man who just learned that his son has died. Don't tell us anything about the son or even that his son has died...just describe the barn as he sees it." Have fun. I won't be tearing the barn down now. Earlier today, I was making plans to tear it down, as it was ju... [Read more]

January 10, 2019 at 11:51pm
PROMPT "If you're not having a good time, find something else that gives you joy." Do you agree with this? If you're looking for a good time {x-link:https://babybearbubbles.blogspot.com/2019/01/good-times.html}GO HERE{/x-link} Written By For: (Art by ) Welcome 2 my neighborhood in Blog City where I live On The Corner of HODGE and PODGE Go {x-link:http://tinyurl.com/y...

An Enhancer Of Thoughts
January 8, 2019 at 11:54pm
PROMPT “I am still committed to the idea that the ability to think for one’s self depends upon one’s mastery of the language.” Joan Didion, Slouching Toward Bethlehem: Essays What are your thoughts on this subject? I believe that we were born with the ability to think for ourselves (that is, form opinions about things) even before we master the language. Therefore, mastering the language isn't what causes us to be able to think for oursel... [Read more]
An Instruction Sheet For Entering & Traveling Through 2019
December 31, 2018 at 8:58pm
PROMPT What do you want to bring more of into your life in 2019? Maybe love, joy, abundance, and what else? What in your life is no longer serving you and needs to be released? Could it be anger, stress, perfectionism, guilt? I believe that my plans (which include my desires) for 2019 could best fit under the umbrella of the well-known bit of wisdom: Let Go & Let God!!! Each morning I wake up thinking about what I'd like to be doing wi... [Read more]
I'm hanging Onto Christmas!!!
December 26, 2018 at 11:57pm
PROMPT What was special about your Christmas? It's Official!!! I made the decision to celebrate Christmas everyday for more than a year, and I begin to put things into motion on Christmas day. You can find the details here: I think it's a very good decision. Stick with me and see how it goes!!! There will be more details about this over time, but I've already loaded up this and a page in another blog with a lot of exciting way... [Read more]

PROMPT Are there any elements of December or the holiday season that are hard or difficult for you? How do you handle them? The elements that can be challenging at this time of year are weather elements. I simply stay in to keep from slipping on the ice and breaking my bones.

I Cried Like A Baby
December 19, 2018 at 11:50pm
PROMPT "It is the sweet, simple things of life which are real after all." Laura Ingalls Wilder Do you agree with this? Babies have at least two reactions to waking up. Most of the time, babies seem to wake up happy and eager to begin the day. I'll never forget that time when I got to keep my goddaughter, Michelle, for a whole week when she was three months old. She was always so eager to start the day and would pat my face and tweak my ... [Read more]
December 18, 2018 at 11:59pm
PROMPT In figuring out--beforehand--what other people will do, how often do you get it right? Does your sixth sense or gut feeling help or does it confuse you? I don't always (as in 100%) get it right. However, there is a surprising amount of times that I do. I definitely have a strong sixth sense, and that often comes in handy. Written By For: (Art by ) Welcome 2 my neighborhood in Blog City where I live ... [Read more]
In A Nutshell...
December 17, 2018 at 11:48pm
PROMPT The meaning of life for some people can be the privilege of existence or to feel one’s worth or to own a dog or a myriad of other things. What is the meaning of life for you or, if you don't want to talk about yourself, someone you know or a character you’ve created? In a nutshell... The meaning of life to me is that my life is a gift from God and something to be celebrated and used well. There are a lot of little things I'd like to... [Read more]
"Do or Do Not, There is no try." (You Don't Say...)
December 13, 2018 at 11:55pm
PROMPT "Do or Do Not, There is no try." Yoda-Star Wars Write your views on this. Actually, I disagree with this because you can really try to do something; discover that you're unable to do it; and, then go off in another direction. In other words, some things just aren't meant to be done no matter how hard you try. Written By For: (Art by ) Welcome 2 my neighborhood in Blog City where I live ... [Read more]
