Today’s daily prompt amuses me. Do I find prompts useful, absolutely!
Prompts are perfect for when I don’t want to sit for hours wondering what I’ll write about. Not to mention that a lot of writing prompts are opinionated. That’s perfect because I have opinions about everything! (Like how proud I am about that young mom on the bus home from work, not the fact that she was on the bus, but that she wasn’t afraid to whip out her breast to feed her baby. Most women are too scared of what people will think, so they just let the poor kid cry the whole way.)
I love writing prompts, they are to me, like keys to unlock a specific part of the mind. Without prompts I would feel lost in the hallways of my mind, unsure of which door to enter (aka. know what to write about).
Also, I find them useful in discovering what other people think about the same subjects. I am always fascinated by the different things that can come out of a single prompt. I LUVS IT!!
Of course you can’t forget the fact that some, like this one, allow you to ramble on and on. Sometimes I do that, I ramble. I did that at work today, I can’t help it! Sous Chef told me to hush..I couldn’t…I tried really hard, and when it still didn’t work I stuck a label over my mouth. The kitchen was nice and quiet for about five minutes. I then ripped of the label and proceeded to ramble, much to the enjoyment – of me! 🙂
