Reblog: 2017 Anti-Resolutions (prompt)

Back to some writing practise then, before the New Year sets in [and time pressing as always lately!]

Today's Author

Write_Now_Plane

At Today’s Author, our first goal is to get you (and us) to write. Write Now is our own collection of prompts to help you do that. With Write Now we’re not talking about writing, or trying to teach anyone how to write. Write Now is all about putting pen to paper.

Today’s Prompt:

We’ve kicked off each of the last several years with a fun writing prompt. Because it’s all about looking forward, it seems like a good way to start off the new year here at Today’s Author.

This prompt is simple in concept:

Your 10 Anti-Resolutions:

  1. List ten things you resolve NOT to do in the upcoming year.
  2. Be as creative as possible.

And we’re serious about #2.

This is not as creative as possible: “I will not write any status updates in ALL CAPS.”

This is: “I will NOT introduce leitmotif into my home, by composing…

Happy Leap Day! Happy Leap Year … make a leap here! There is no time like the present – whatever the day, it’s a leap thing all year apparently…

Happy Leap Day!

If I’d had better energy and not distracted with theme changing I might have got this Leap thing off the ground better, made an event page and submitted a listing. But, right from the beginning the Leapster was a free-flying flit about just making a leap sometime, somehow… ‘Your leap, your way…’

My Leap, my way.. coming soon:

  • a Leap proposal…
  • my 2020 vision (not a plan, just a glimpse ahead…)
  • round-up post of leaps along the way (thanks SarahC et al for joining the fun 🙂
  • ‘make-a-leap’ mini-challenges so far so…

It’s never too late to join in, 2020 is a long way off and it’s Leap Year for a…

Take me to… the next big thing

(Note to self, I thought I’d lost the random prompt generator, or that it had been discontinued, but you can find it at The Daily Post homepage!)

Prompt! The next big thing in technical innovation I must really have is…

… the home holo-deck! So, while standing at my desktop, I can slip into work, do my shift, slip home after in the blink of an eye. I’d not need to change my clothes before slipping back out to eat a nice meal and enjoy a couple of hours socialisation. All without going anywhere and spending no real money on fares or food. Much less of my day would be wasted for travelling! I’d be back in time for a quick blog and still manage to get an early night and plenty of sleep.

I could spend my vacation in Hawaii (or anywhere else in the world / universe) without growing a huge carbon footprint to get there – and still be able to sleep every night in my own comfy bed without troubling my neighbour to dog-sit while I’m ‘away’.

Wouldn’t that be nice? I really must have one!

Just one more thing – a widget you plug into your neural network that captures every thought that should count as poetry or writing! The number of times, lost in thought, something is processing away, generating a lovely long string of something that really should have been written down but is forgotten by the time you arrive at some writing time.

Wouldn’t it be nice to access all that mislaid meandering and make something potentially great with it! (It wouldn’t be the next BIG thing, probably a grain of rice size nano-worm you drop in your ear and away it goes…)
