Write about the subject you usually blog about as if you were a music critic.
I do write blog posts on a variety of topics. Somehow I find the prompts given are directed towards my skills or my favorites. Sometimes it’s about Music, where I grew up , my family, cooking, my likes and dislikes.
One of the recent ones was where I lived at age twelve. I enjoyed writing it , it brought back so many pleasant memories.
The part about my taste in music thrilled me I had the opportunity of writing who my favorite singers are was marvellous.
Sometimes we were told to write poetry and were assured we’d get extra points for it, although poetry is not my thing, I did give it a try, Whether those extra points were given to me I’m not aware, maybe it’s a way of tempting us.
The subject of cooking and eating does come up once in a while as a prompt, I love writing about my favorite food.
When I think of Art, I imagine drawing, I’m not good at it, of course if I think I’m not good at something, I refuse to spend time on it.
Writing prompts to me is an useful exercise and can be sneaky. Take for example, the one I did yesterday about the last song I heard.I had to pick the third line and make it my post. This required a lot of pondering on my part. I tested a few,the third line was not helping me to write anything.I did write something,I felt as if the topic was taking me where I did not want to go.
It was a question of ,’Should I skip it or attempt it?’ Then the thought why not I pick a song from a language I know and translate it. To my surprise what I came up with was amazing. I ended up writing about the dearest person in the world. Although I had to exercise my brain,mind whatever you call it, the result was heartening for me. I was able to write about my Dad.The satisfaction I got from it was tremendous.
The prompts can be a little sneaky as well.There are prompts where I wrote about myself,my likes,dislikes the whole bit. It seemed at times I was writing my autobiography unconsciously. This is the part I’d call sneaky.
To sum up I must say,I enjoy writing the prompts.If I had to think of what to write, I wouldn’t write one every day.The fact I get help is truly remarkable,sneaky or not.
