I am inspired, yet also repelled, by our homework today: Prompts. I’ve got to admit, I’m one of those who seeks inspiration; I put on my writing hat, my grammar gloves and ten-dollar-word boots and I trek across the interwebs, searching for prompt lists and advent fic calendars. I herd them all into my files so I can gaze at them with pride. I may even print some and pin them to my wall as a sort of monument-to-be. And then I forget about them.
Why? I don’t know. It certainly doesn’t give me any pleasure to be reminded that I haven’t written anything in three years (*sob*). What’s more, I’m ever on the lookout for more prompts. This 365 WordPress Prompts ebook? Yeah, downloaded it. Masochism? A little bit.
In any case, today’s prompt is titled ‘The Great Divide’ (see original prompt here). As soon as i saw the title, I had an ‘Aha!’ moment out of nowhere:
You’re a long-lived supernatural being watching the Grand Canyon be formed. What are your thoughts, your feelings?
Just barely associated with the original prompt, I still quite like it because it seems like it has a lot of potential. There’s a part two to this assignment tomorrow, so we’ll see what happens.
In other news, I’m slowly working my way through other Blogging101 assignments, maybe finding a new theme (again), working on blogrolls and linkage and all that to make a happy bouncy blog.
Hope everyone’s having a good day. If you’re not, tell me about it, or leave me a link to your prompt. That’d be fun, right?
