Daily Prompt – Tight Corner

Have you ever managed to paint yourself into the proverbial corner because of your words? What did you do while waiting for them “to dry”?

I often have a problem of my mouth saying things that get me into trouble… especially when I overreact to certain things, and fly off the handle… on to then find out the real story, and I’m left with egg on my face, and then forced to apologise, which I usually find quite hard to do..

Daily Prompt – Secret Santa

You get to choose one gift — no price restrictions — for any person you want. The caveat? You have to give it anonymously. What gift would you give, and to whom?

This is quite a hard decision to make – every person knows a lot of people, and there are a lot of people whom are genuinely in need, not to mention the countless others who are living in poverty around the world.

Daily Prompt – To Be Resolved

How did you do on last year’s New Year’s resolutions? Do you anticipate there would be any leftover items to be carried over to next year?

I don’t even remember what my New Year’s Resolutions were… I wonder if I wrote a blog post about it??

Daily Prompt – Cause, Meet Effect

You can singlehandedly create a causal relation between two things that are currently unconnected — a word and an emotion, a song and an extreme weather event, wearing a certain color and winning the lottery. What cause would you link to what effect, and why?

Let’s create a connection between exercise and cake. Yes, cake. And when I say connection, I mean a positive connection, rather than a negative one.

Daily Prompt – Another Trio

Write about any topic you wish, but make sure your post features a bookcase, something cracked, and a song you love.

Casey put down the box in the hallway, straddling the top of it to push the two flaps on top together, and then using the heavy-duty packing tape, taped the top of the box shut. She carefully sat there on top of the box, let out a giant sigh as she looked around her, observing all the other piles of belongings that still needed to be packed.

Daily Prompt – Getting Seasonal

Do you miss the holiday season when it’s months away? When you’re in the midst of holiday madness, do you enjoy it, or can’t wait for it to be over?

This recent holiday season, I really couldn’t be bothered. I was so completely disorganised, it was embarrassing.

Daily Prompt – In Due Time

What’s your next, most pressing deadline? Are you excited, stressed, or ambivalent about it? What’s the first thing you’d like to do once you’re done with it?

OMFG let’s talk about deadlines… I’ve got a backlog of approximately 20 posts that I need to actually finish writing to finally finish my daily-post challenge for 2014… then I need to find a good weekly writing challenge that I can focus on for the next twelve months to develop my creative writing and start actually doing some real writing, instead of spending all my time on these daily prompts. I’ve done it for 12 months, and I’m done.

It’s proven that I just do not have the time to dedicate to daily writing, and instead, I end up with a giant backlog, that I have to spend excess time on in order to try and catch up on.

I’m looking forward to clearing this backlog, but I’m more excited about really being able to sink my ‘teeth’ into some creative writing. I’ve realised that I’ve got a strong connection to it, and I really want to pursue it further.

I also think that it will allow me to write a lot more other posts from week-to-week – about anything that happens to pop into my mind. I’ve got a couple of posts that I wanted to write a little while ago, but never got around to it… 2015 will be the year I change that.

Daily Prompt – The Object of my Dejection

Tell us about the object of your dejection — something you made, a masterpiece unfinished, or some sort of project that failed to meet your expectations. What did you learn from the experience? How would you do things differently next time?

Easy… my other blog…

Daily Prompt – Unsung Heroes

We all have our semi-secret, less-known personal favorites — a great B-side, an early work by an artist that later became famous, an obscure (but delicious) family recipe. Share one of your unsung heroes with us — how did you discover it? Why has it stayed off everyone’s radar?

I can’t actually say that I have any – if anything, I do love a good B-side, but it’s not very often that my favourite artists will release any B-sides. Although, I do like it when they do an album of B-sides as a retrospective – artists like the Sugababes and Kylie Minogue have both released some great B-side albums. There’s even been a few Britney Spears B-sides that I’ve grown to like almost more than the rest of her work, but even then, those are far and few between.
