9:00 AM Friday morning, April 4th 2008, on the U.S. West Coast, is quickly approaching — so… here I am with a new Prompt! This week’s, and the twenty ninth Writer’s Island prompt comes to us from one of our fine Islanders, Marilyn Maciel — and it is: “Lost Highway”. Thank you Marilyn! Anyone else have a prompt idea?
That two word phrase conjures so many images for me, but I don’t want to sway your take on this week’s prompt. On what journey does “Lost Highway” send your imagination? Please share with us where this prompt leads you!
••> This week we turn to the new movie release, Leatherheads, as the source of our seventh Matinee Muse prompt — “Rivals”. See if you can tackle this one.
The Matinee Muse prompts are now a regular weekly offering. So please enjoy! <••
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 your muse, this week and every week, never leave you lost, but rather, steer you to write your best — to write your heart! We can’t wait to see what you have for us…
