My little experiment in giving writers a safe to place to post their writing is almost a year old … this is week 49 out of 52 and I asked my four most faithful writing friends who participate to have the opportunity of creating their own prompt for the final four weeks before hitting the One Year Anniversary.
Up first is my friend Shelly aka @Wildthing404 on Twitter … below is her posting of Prompt 49 on her website:
As being chosen to go first to kick off the celebration of the one-year anniversary of “Writing Outside the Lines”, I just want to say a little bit.
When Annie suggested starting this, I gave her my full support. I thought it would be a great thing to do even though I felt that I was a horrible writer. I have to tell you, I was terrified to submit that first piece.
I found as I went along though, that I felt more at ease. As I relaxed, so did my writing. Slowly it got a little better. I know when one is good and when one is merely ok. I’m learning as I go and I’m okay with that.
None of this would have been possible, had I not had the constant support of Annie. Through it all, she was there, right beside me, not pushing, not once! But cheering me all the way! She has always encouraged me to stretch further than I thought I could.
Without that, I doubt I would be here today writing this. I would have given up ages ago. But because of the time Annie gave unselfishly to me, I am here today leading out with the first prompt!
So Happy One-Year Anniversary WOL! I raise my glass to my fellow Writing Rebels & say “Here’s to the next year! May we be as prolific as we were this first year! CHEERS!”
Now on to the prompt, as an Aquarian, I am a weirdo. So the above quote by Hunter S. Thompson has always been kind of like my motto. Are you weird? How so? Do you have a motto? What is it & why? Or does the turtle inspire you? She is quite gorgeous … smiling at you. The name of the photo is: “I’m Ready For My Close Up Mr. DeMille”. Her name is Yolanda and she was going to lay eggs. Now I hope I’ve given you inspiration to write whatever moves you! Aren’t you glad I don’t give prompts every week????
Thank you Shelly for giving us a wonderful prompt to kick off the Final 4!
