365 Writing Prompts: Island of misfit posts

We all have something we’d like to write about, but that doesn’t really “fit” our blog. Write it anyway.

Ramadan Mubarak to everyone. Today is the sixth day of fasting. Here in St John’s it is easier to fast because so far the days are much cooler than  in  places, i.e. Dhaka Bangladesh, Karachi Pakistan.

I woke up at 2:02 a.m it meant I have to get up wash and eat something, food this early wasn’t appealing to me, however I knew I must eat or else I’d have to wait until it’s 9:02 pm to eat or drink anything.

I went to the kitchen got my usual two Jacob’s crackers, took out a slice of cheese, put them on a plate and microwaved it for twenty seconds. Next I poured some milk in my mug and heated it. I was ready to eat.

It took me less than ten minutes to eat my early breakfast.

Next I said my prayers before the morning prayer. At 3:03 I said my morning prayer, read a part of the Qur’an and went back to bed.

Although I intended to sleep till 8:am I could not and had to get up at 6:30 am. Since I left my bed, I’ve done a few things like wrote a five sentence fiction, added another paragraph of comment to my previous comment on the course blog.

Now I’m writing the 365 writing prompt. I’m writing something that doesn’t really “fit” my blog, I’m writing it anyway because the title of the prompt is ,”Island Of Misfit Posts.”

Before I conclude I must add, the fasting this day will be over at 9:02 pm in my neck of the woods. I hope Readers I did not bore you to tears! 🙂

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this post with us. Best of luck in your Ramadan fasting.

    All good wishes,


  2. It is interesting for me to learn about Ramadan. Fasting is not something I ever do unless for medical procedures. I think I would find it quite difficult. Thanks for sharing your experience of it 🙂

  3. My dearest sister,

    Thanks for sharing this :).

    Yes fasting has turned out to be very difficult especially in Karachi this year. The weather became unusually hot with 44 degree C, and there was no electricity most of the most. The news is that 800 people have died in the last three days – including children, women and old people trapped in the heat in their homes. It is heard that the city is now facing a crisis in handling not only the sick but even the dead – funeral services as well as mortuaries are failing to cope with the number of bodies.

    It is not heard that the ruling elite cancelled their lavish Iftar parties. May God grant them humanity and bestow peace on the souls of the departed ones.
