REMINDER: in the months of July, August, and September, there will be a new prompt post only once a month here on Writer’s Island, posted the first Friday of each month — not every week. Prompts monthly, not weekly this Summer.
9:00 AM Friday morning, June 20th 2008, on the U.S. West Coast, is quickly approaching — so… here I am with a new Prompt! This week’s, and the fortieth Writer’s Island prompt is: “Questionable“.
No doubt, this word would appear wide open for interpretation. What is it you’ve had your doubts about, or stirred your uncertainty? Where does “Questionable“ take your imagination? Share with us what you envision.
We turn to a bittersweet, but inspiring movie, Brick Lane,
for our twenty third and twenty fourth Matinee Muse prompts.
The first is: “Coercion”.
Have you ever felt pressured, or pushed, against your will
toward someone or something?
The second is: “Awakening”.
Does this spark a vision of self-discovery or revelation —
or perhaps you envision a stirring of memory, or return from dormancy/death?
The Matinee Muse prompts are now a regular weekly offering, so please enjoy!
Remember — this, and every week, click the poster to learn about the movie.
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, leave no doubt that you will write your very best — write from your heart! We can’t wait to see what you create.
