What's with room number 4? Is room #4 the answer to something or a question? Do we have to care what's behind the door? Does it matter?
I've no idea, same as I've no idea why this week's writing prompt wanted to be shades of gray or somewhat silvery, depending on your viewpoint.
Last week's prompt led two writers to veer toward the same topic very independently of one another and I'm wondering what this week's prompt will do. I think we'll be surprised. (Surprise me?)
So are you ready to take the challenge this week and write? I hope you are.
See you in the comments section.
Words and Wishes, Prompts Fulfilled
Last week's box for wishes led to pretty words, sad words. There's something about that word wish, isn't there?
A couple of years ago I had been sneaking through her house while she was outside with mum and found a really old and mysterious looking wooden chest in her bedroom. It seemed to have once been painted but the coating had long flaked away and the silver ornaments were all dull and grey.
I couldn’t lift the lid back then, but…
*Not that anybody asked me, but I don’t much like the word wish. It’s a too-little word that asked to do too much.
Full of envy-laden sighs
I wish I wrote like Shakespeare
I wish that I could fly
I wish to be a mermaid
And I wish to be an elf
I wish to be a warrior
And I wish to be myself
And wish instead of do
I need to give up wishing
And create my world anew
So from today I practise
And build experience and skill
Today I give up wishing
And instead of wish, I will.
a shell, an arch, a curve, a point
a story of what’s passed
looking to the future
Stay well, take care of yourself, and write if writing helps with both of those, okay?
