25 Days of Xmas. And prompts

So I've decided to publish the list of prompts that I will be following for the next 25 days. That way you can pick what day you might like to read my ramblings (do forgive my god-awful writing, however I am publishing it all un-edited) so there's that to consider.

So here it is. The List!

  1. You're digging in your garden and find a fist-sized nugget of gold.
  2. Write about something ugly - war, fear, hate, cruelty - but find the beauty (silver lining) in it.
  3. The asteroid was hurtling straight for...
  4. A kid comes out of the bathroom with toilet paper dangling from his or her waistband.

  7. Write a poem about a first romantic (dare I say: sexual) experiene or encounter. (Oh Jeez!)
  8. He turned the key in the lock and opened the door. To his horror he saw...
  9. Silvery flakes drifted down, glittering in the bright light of the harvest moon. The blackbird...
  10. The detective saw his opportunity. He grabbed the waitress's arm and said....
  11. There are three children sitting on a log near a stream. One of them looks up at the sky and says...
  12. There is a magic talisman that allows its keeper to read minds. It's falls into the hands of a young politian...
  13. And you thought dragons didn't exist...
  14. Write about nature. Include the following words, hard drive, stapler, phone, car, billboard.
  15. The doctor put his hand on her arm and said gently, "You or the baby will survive. Not both. I'm sorry."
  16. The nation is controlled by...
  17. You walk into your house and it's completely different - furniture, decor, all changed. And nobody's home...
  18. Write about one (or both) of your parents. Start with 'I was born...'
  19. The most beautiful smile I ever saw...
  20. I believe that animals exist to...
  21. A twinkling eye can mean many things. The one that is twinkling at me right now...
  22. Good versus evil. Does it truly exist? What are the gray areas? Do good people do bad things?
  23. My body...
  24. Have you ever been just about to drift off to sleep only to be roused because you spontaneously remembered an embarrassing moment from your past?
  25. Get a package of one of your favourite canned or boxed foods and look at the ingredients. Use every ingredient in your writing session.


PHEW! There are a few toughies in there...and I'm not going to go back on my word or my challenge but there are some that I can see inspiring very personal pieces of writing that I will share with you all. It's just a matter of time I guess. Wish me luck!

Do everything so it's beautiful like you :) JP xx
