Weekly Writing Prompt (#37)

encouragement

First I am sorry that this is a day late. Yesterday was a long day at work and I was burnt out by the time I got home. Thankfully I have tonight mostly free, so I am able to at least do this post.

  1. What does religion or faith mean to you? Do you have a religion? What are your views and feelings towards spirituality? Either tell a story, write a poem or simply start writing down ideas and see where it leads.
  2. You are watching a  fantasy or sci-fi movie or television. This show has supernatural or non-humans living among humans. When the show ends a conversation is started with your love interest about the reactions of the humans to the non-human or super-humans. It turns out your love interest is not normal. What happens next?
  3. Do you have a birthday tradition? Is there something you do every year on your birthday or some one else’s? If there is tell the story behind the tradition, including times that the tradition stuck out and made memories?
  4. What is something you do daily or almost daily? What simple and ordinary task do you do regularly? Once you have it in your head write a poem about it. First just write it out simply, then go back and add details along with poetic wording.
  5. Are you on Social Media? Use your profile or different profiles to write character description(s). If you have multiple accounts or profiles create a character or each one.

Weekly Writing Prompt (#36)

encouragement

  1. Write 3 two sentence story. Pick three genres (I am going to do Romantic, Comedy, and Horror). After you have your 3 genres write the story out and dwindle it down to two sentences that tell the important and complete story.
  2. Pick a favorite word either to say or one that you love its meaning. Use it to start a story or poem. Have that word be the beginning of the story and the focus of the story or the poem.
  3. You grew up hearing about lucky people just waking up in their dream lives. Then one day you wake up in a different life. Only it’s not your dream, but a stranger’s. What do you do? Who is the stranger?
  4. Tell a story about time travel but try to come up with a new idea or way of doing it. If you have seen or read an aspect of something you are writing try to change that aspect. This will be hard, but even slight changes may lead to a more interesting story.
  5. What does race mean to you? Express your answer the best way you see fit, whether that is a poem, story, or monologue.

 

Weekly Writing Prompts (#34)

 

encouragement

 

  1. Write a short story from the point of view of a butt-head or someone you do not like. Try to make the narrator as unlikable as possible. To compensate for the nasty narration give your readers good writing, an interesting story, and great characters.
  2. You just made a wish that you would be treated like royalty and that wish came true. What happens next? What do you do? How does it change you?
  3. Time Freezes. Everything and everyone stops except for you. Now, you must find out why.
  4. Write a poem about your creative process. What do you do? How are you creative? What does it feel like? What thoughts go through your head?
  5. What does your spouse or dream spouse think of you? If they were alone with their friends what would they be saying about you?

I hope you are inspired by these prompts. Perhaps a muse will now visit you and you will be able to let the creative juices flow. If you are inspired or if these prompts do help you, please, let me know.

Weekly Writing Prompt (#33)

  1. For years your spouse or best friend has been struggling with what everyone thinks is multiple personalities (Dissociative Identity Disorder). You have never seen an episode, but she/ he talks about it with you. One day you come home/ go over her/ his house and they are having an episode. The strange thing is that you see a different soul in her body and can see her soul napping on the couch. She/ he is not struggling with Dissociative Identity Disorder but is actually sort of a medium except the ghosts possess her/him instead of talking to them.
  2. What type of week did you just have? Was it great? Was it long? Can you write a poem about it? If you can you should try. Focus on the emotions and images that you remember from this last week.
  3. You meet a dog on the street and he follows you home. He is friendly and the perfect pet. He becomes part of your family. Write a character description about this awesome dog.

  1. Write a poem about relief. What does it feel like? How does it come? When does it happen?

An Early DreamWard Bound

success

Now that I have spent most of my day off from work being distracted by the internet and random stuff I think I can sit down and write about my week. I just have to remember what I did this week and what made it a journey towards my dreams.

I did write more than normal and Sunday I spent the day reading about God. Besides that I don’t think anything that interesting happened in my life this week.

I have read more about God and am trying to figure out what would be the best path for me. That seems to be the most important thing in my life now. It is good that I actually ordered my goals right this time. This goal is my number one goal both on paper and actions.

I feel my relationships growing, although I am pretty sure I didn’t say I love you everyday. I still am focusing in on the important relationships in my life and I hope the people in my life can tell.

I have worked on my book for 3 hours since making the 30 hours in 30 days goal. It’s not as far as I feel like I should be, but it is something. In those 3 hours I have also gotten farther than I thought I would.

I just rearranged my last two goals, because I am realizing that my acting and writing career/ passion trumps my physical goals. I do have a plan or experiment to boost my health and fitness, but acting and writing take up a bigger aspect of my thought life. Especially, lately I have been thinking of projects that would help me boost my audience base, income, or both.

One thing that I am working on is getting my visual art or sell-able stuff up on eBay. I also want to make more masks and post those on eBay, also. However, the masks will be after I get my paintings up on eBay. This is mostly because I already have paintings I can sell, while I only actually own one of my masks and it is not for sale.

I guess that’s all I have to say today about my journey. I’m simply taking small steps and coming up with ideas at this point. One day I will be able to run towards my dreams and take giant leaps of faith, but today I am only able to put one foot in front of the other.

The steps I took towards my dreams are as follows:

A Whispered Promise

A Pondering Poem

The Week of Ideas to Live DreamWard Bound

success

 

It seems like this week I came up with so many different ways that I could help boost my DreamWard Bound journey.

One you may have seen or read. It was a monologue from a character in my book. I did it in hopes that if more people know about the characters while I work on the book, when it is finished more people will be interested in reading it. At one point I will even share a portion of a chapter.

I am also thinking about turning DreamWard Bound posts into a book. I think my journey is interesting and I like the poetry and stories that help tell my journey. I am not in a place where there is an end to that book yet. I still will have to wait on something happening. Yet, when it does I want to be ready and have that boost me towards my end goals and dreams.

Another book idea or writing project I have is turning my 3 month challenge of no television into a book. I’m not sure if it will be just a kindle size or if it will be long enough for a real book. I am just starting on that journey and study. So far I have journaled my thoughts and study notes. I think I’m interesting enough for people to read that journey. At least I am interesting to me.

On another note I am starting to find myself picking apart the different aspects of the music I listen to. If this continues I may start a new hobby (creating music). I always need more hobbies and things to do. It would be another way for people to hear about me. However, it is not part of my end goal and I have never really been a musical person, so I am trying to just let that be. I already am stretched thin with my time.

I am working on my goals with the time I do have as I am thinking of new ways to boost me towards my end goals. I haven’t watched televisions, except when I was over a friend’s house for dinner. I believe I have said I love some one every day. I am pretty sure I’ve said it to multiple people. I am at least conscious of my health, but have been lacking on actually eating healthier and working out on days I can’t go to BJJ. Editing is also going slow, but I do plan to edit a bunch today. I have writing my monologue for this week and after I write four, I will pick one to perform and post on YouTube.

To end this post I will leave you with my list of things I posted this week, like I normally do.

Kitty’s Monologue

A Beauty and A Beast
