A New Perspective

The Writing 101 prompt that I am using as inspiration today is an interesting one. It involves writing a scene based on a provided paragraph. The twist is to write it from three different points of view. Old Woman: It’s a fine day. The sun warms my back and the clicking of my knitting needles…

An Autumnal Afternoon

Today I am taking inspiration from another Writing 101 prompt. The prompt suggests taking a trip to a public location and reporting on what is seen there, without using any adverbs. It’s not really convenient for me to go out anywhere now (it’s dark here already…) so I’m going to do this as a work…

The Notes That You Speak

Today’s post is inspired by a combination of a prompt from Blogging 101 and another prompt from Writing 101. The former is to write to a post designed for your ideal reader, with the twist of including a new element; something that you’ve not previously used when blogging. The second is to write for 15…
