I thought I'd have another hit at poetry for today's prompt and just as a disclaimer, the poem does not reflect my personal view or approach to life but I want to explore different perspectives of the world and living. I am trying all sorts of ways to approach my writing and lifestyle and this … Continue reading Day 8 of My Writing Challenge: Balance.
Today's prompt is a little bit more informal, my creative juices aren't flowing at the minute but I did want to do this prompt before I completely hit a wall, so here is my preachy entry, enjoooy. Enid Blyton's The Famous Five, Stranger Things' group of outcasts, Scooby-doo and the Mystery Gang, the friends helping … Continue reading Day 7 of My Writing Challenge: Together.
When I saw this prompt I was a bit shocked, seemed a little far-fetched and cliche, but I suppose that only depends on how you approach it. I'm going to make mine short and sweet to avoid it turning gross. I like to take a naturalistic approach to my work. In many of my stories … Continue reading Day 6 of My Writing Challenge: Perfection.
I'm very excited about today's prompt because I get to write about food. I've never actually written food into any of my stories really but I love reading food preparation and imagery in Japanese novels and watching it in anime. I don't know why but it is just my favourite thing, it makes me SO … Continue reading Day 5 of My Writing Challenge: Yum.
This prompt was a bit of a difficult one for me as I was struggling to write as it was and then talking about the sun which I haven't taken advantage of in a while completely trumped me. But, I thought I might as well try and post it a day late anyway. So here … Continue reading Day 4 of My Writing Challenge: Sun.
Today's prompt is Heart and I am supposed to be writing from the perspective of an animal which I am not quite doing but I thought it was okay to bend the rules a bit. This is my first real attempt of poetry and I am scared, embarrassed and excited about it so go easy … Continue reading Day 3 of My Writing Challenge: Heart.
This came from a memory of me and my best friend and it came out a little weirder and less effective than I had hoped, but I suppose that's the way to learn by accepting your better and worse pieces. So here is today's story for the prompt: Youth. 2. The warm day was losing … Continue reading Day 2 of My Writing Challenge: Youth.
To apply a little structure or consistency to my life I have decided to do a thirty day writing plan/challenge. If you have come from my Instagram then you will have seen the template that I am using. If you have not, here it is and feel free to also join in on developing your … Continue reading Day 1 of My Writing Challenge: Fool.
So after almost a year since reading the first two parts of 1Q84, which I thoroughly enjoyed (see my Goodreads review for what I actually thought), I thought I would go back to Murakami and finally finish the series as I was absolutely pumped to see the narrative unravel and reveal the ending. Unfortunately, the … Continue reading My final thoughts on 1Q84.
