365 Writing Prompt: Silver Screen

Take a quote from your favorite movie– there’s a title of your post. Now, write!

“I have often walked down the street before!”

“Sheila what are you doing here?”

She heard someone call her name, she turned around there was her friend Dorothy huffing and puffing to catch her breath.

Why it’s you Dorothy , I can ask you the same question?

Well Sheila this street reminds me of the good old days when I used to walk everyday to go to the university, they were such marvelous days. I remember Mr. Baird asked you the name of your school and you were so proud to tell him the name. Did you continue your studies, what are you doing now?

I had my teaching degree, I’m back teaching in a different school, this one is a day school, I can go home and do other things.

What happened to the other school, did you not like it?

I left that one, I had other duties besides teaching, it was a boarding school, they expected me to be present in the dining hall when the kids were eating. Frankly I felt it was a total waste of my time.

Dorothy what are you doing?I went to law school to study, I completed it,  now I’m practicing law.

That’s exciting, oh Dorothy I’m sorry I have to leave now, I promised my cousin I’ll go with her to watch a movie. It was great meeting you, all the best to you.Bye!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this story. I’m always impressed at how you can create stories from these prompts. They are as if seeds that you could, if you wished, create into larger stories. Perhaps a book is in your future? 🙂

    All good wishes,


    • Dear Robert,
      Perhaps if you can kindly suggest a prompt,
      I might be able to write one sooner rather than later.
      You have read so many books, poetry, stories, I can use your help.
      Now no pressure it just struck me this moment.

      • Dear Ranu,

        I’m thinking of how your story may benefit others, uplift others, inspire others. Perhaps your story, which includes your hardships, but also, and especially, your joys, is the place to start. This could be like a biography. It might trace your story, from birth, through all of your wonderful experiences with your father, your travels, and into your exploration and study of Tagore, Iqbal, and others. It could be your life-story, from beginning to the present.

        These are just a few ideas.

        All good wishes,
