Happy Saturday all you lovely people out there. Can you believe that it’s already Halloween? At least for me, this year has sped by. But what better time to write a story. And “Let’s Listen & Write” is a wonderful prompt to use anytime.
It is brilliant to get you started with any writing or blogging project you have. So please get your pens, pencils or keyboards out and join us in a little writing adventure. This is a stream of consciousness writing prompt so grammar does not matter. You just write what comes to your mind. Nothing matters that makes “good” writing. This prompt is just to have fun and enjoy a growing story. Of course, you are free to use it as the seed to a bigger work. So please, if you feel like it, let your inner storyteller write through you and share his or her story with us. Oh, feel free to use it any day of the week, not only on a Saturday 🙂 . Here is the prompt:
I invite you to listen to your inner storyteller. Find a comfortable place with your writing pad, your laptop or with whatever you like to write. Light a candle or joss stick or simply open the window. Lean back in your seat and close your eyes. Imagine yourself in a beautiful glade. There is an old oak tree, and you slowly walk over, taking in the sounds and smells of the forest and river. Please sit down, and lean against the trunk of the oak. Then wait until your storyteller appears on the other side of the tree and starts telling you about…
Today is the day, I thought.
I had never strayed from the right path. Always being nice. Always setting a good example. They laughed at me. They spat at me. They used me as they pleased.
But today was the day. I knew it deep inside. As the moon rose I put on the black hooded cape and grabbed the scythe…
That’s what my inner storyteller shared with me. Please, feel free to join this little writing experiment and share your stories or links to your stories in the comments.
You can do it!
