When I was six years old, my parents decided to move from Newcastle to Kirkby Lonsdale, meaning I had to change schools once again. I had already done that several times and as a result, always found it difficult to make friends. I ended up going to a school on the outskirts of Kirkby, called … Continue reading Writing Prompt 11: Write about long-distance friends who meet for the first time in 15 years.
This writing prompt "triggered" me slightly. By the way, I love the fact that we live in a time where people are referred to as being "triggered" when something bothers them and even more so that there are Youtube compilations of this. Anyway, I was triggered. The first thing I thought about was how I … Continue reading Writing Prompt 10: Write about people you should never underestimate.
She looks directly ahead, glazed and drowning eyes fixed on the green light. The night's air is cold and wet, she only wears a sundress, but her skin is hot and her pace is steady. The wind blows the rain so that it pelts upon her face, yet her focus on the light remains and … Continue reading Writing Prompt 9: Convey a mood as your character walks down the street. Don’t tell us how he or she feels.
I have stopped kidding myself now that it is a "30 Day Writing Challenge", so let's just call it "30 Writing Prompts Challenge". Four months in and I am on (day) eight. Laughable I know. Anyway! For this challenge, I went on my favourite songs of all time playlist and put it on shuffle, the … Continue reading 30 Writing Prompts Challenge – Prompt 8: Put your playlist on shuffle, write something using the first phrase of that song.
CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES COME ON! F-I-N-A-L-L-Y! This prompt was torture. I had too many ideas and not enough at the same time. My poor confused and muddled mind. After reading through this, I realised that as nice as the story was supposed to be, it could actually be interpreted in a really, really dark way... … Continue reading Day 7 of the 30 Day Writing Challenge
I have been watching quite a few horror films at the moment so I wanted to write something that I could end with "and they lived happily ever after." I approached this writing prompt differently to usual, I let myself write and write and didn't go back to edit. Sometimes you just need to let … Continue reading Day 6 of the 30 Day Writing Challenge
Write a story that takes place over 24 hours in one room. Once again, it has taken me ages to put a post up. I am beginning to think I should have chosen worse writing prompts for this challenge because it is certainly not 30 days! It takes me about 30 days to put one … Continue reading Day 5 Of the 30 Day Writing Challenge
I don't know why, but I found this one so difficult. I had lots of ideas and I wrote four different versions. I didn't like a single one of them, but since it has taken me over a week to post Day 4, I figured I should kiss my silly pride goodbye and go for … Continue reading Day 4 of the 30 Day Writing Challenge
I found this hard today. Staring at a screen isn't fun with a headache and this turned out to be one of those things where you get an idea in your head, but you just can't get it out. I guess this has ended up being a poem. It is about what some girls go … Continue reading Day 3 of the 30 Day Writing Challenge
Write about the last time you cried... It was only last week. I started to write a short story about something that happened to me when I was a teenager. It was the first time I had written anything about it since around the time that it happened. It was a bit intense. It is … Continue reading Day 2 of the 30 Day Writing Challenge
