On writing prompts and a text exchange (blog marathon post 4)
Every day of this blog marathon, there is a writing prompt given which you can follow if you like. Usually I do not like it! That leaves me with no option but to think of something interesting to write (as I hate to do filler posts) or to ask my good friends for suggestions.
I asked Satish to tell me what to write about. He suggested something really hilarious (and a bit scandalous if you're slightly prudish :p ) which had happened to him. But I felt he would say it better than me and I could persuade him to do so in a guest post. (Mental note to myself: Hound him/pound him/ground him/ impound him till he writes. heh heh heh. He is blissfully unaware of my intentions. :-) See what all I do just to get a funny post across to you. You do appreciate, don't you? Thank you! :-))
Then I texted a dear friend and asked him for a writing prompt.
" Lethargy, procrastination, laziness" he texted back.(Did I mention he has a sense of humour? :) )
"That was PROMPT " I replied but of course he side-stepped the wit and just as I hit 'send', I had another text from him.
"Which is stronger? Inspiration or desperation? Do good fences make good neighbours?" read his text.
"Which is stronger depends on 1.Which side of the fence you are 2.How hot the neighbour is 3.How strong her husband/boyfriend is! :D LOL " was my instant reply.
I could picture him smiling as he read my text just as I can picture you now, smiling as you read this post :-)
Sometimes right prompts are not write-prompts, wrong prompts are right prompts and prompt prompts are a lot of fun :-)
Don't you agree? :)
