9:00 AM Friday morning, May 30th 2008, on the U.S. West Coast, is quickly approaching — so… here I am with a new Prompt! This week’s, and the thirty-seventh Writer’s Island prompt is: “Extravagant”.
That word paints some powerful and engaging images for me. Does “Extravagant“ take your imagination to grand and wondrous places or things — perhaps an extravaganza? Maybe it makes you reflect on a darker meaning, such as unnecessary excess? Share with us what you envision.
This week we turn to a bittersweet, but true story, Savage Grace,
for our seventeenth and eighteenth Matinee Muse prompts.
The first: “Class”.
What does this conjure for you – societal stratus, or maybe an elegant demeanor?
Perhaps it brings to mind an academic gathering or subject.
The second is a phrase: “Fall From Grace”.
What tragic, or sad image or circumstance — or series of choices or events
does this stir in your soul?
Maybe it revisits a woeful devastating personal experience or memory.
Feel free to use any one, or all, of this week’s prompts — or use your own, 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, lavish you with inspiration to write your very best — write from your heart! We can’t wait to see what you have for us…
