9:00 AM Friday morning, February 22nd, 2008, on the U.S. west coast, is quickly approaching — so… here I am with a new Prompt!
This week’s, and the twenty third Writer’s Island prompt is: “Second Chance”.
As always, I don’t want to unduly influence you regarding how you approach this week’s prompt. Just ask yourself, what if you had a “Second Chance” — then please just tell us what that might mean to you. Stir our emotions!
•> This week I’m going to try something a bit different. This week there will be a second prompt. Every Friday here in the U.S., and perhaps world wide, the brand new movies open in the theaters. So I’m going to experiment with an extra prompt for a few weeks, one inspired by a current new movie. I’m calling this source of inspiration, the WI ‘Matinee Muse’.
We turn to the movie Vantage Point for our first ever ‘Matinee Muse’ prompt — and the prompt it inspires is: “Perspective”. See if that sparks anything for you. If we Islanders find the ‘Matinee Muse’ prompts enjoyable — they could become a regular weekly offering. <•
Feel free to use either, or both, of this week’s prompts — or use neither if you so choose. Whatever moves your soul this week is what we all want to read.
So, create your poem, prose, short story, essay, commentary, or whatever — and post it on your blog. Feel free to include recordings of you reading your work — and any photo, artwork, or graphic representation you feel is relevant.
When you have finished your piece, please return here to this post and place your link to your work as a comment — and as you know, just the link, not the piece.
Please realize there is no need to rush, this post will be open to receive your links for the entire week, leading up to the next prompt.
May this, and every week, find your muse in a friendly mood! We can’t wait to see what you write…
