So Sorry

I haven't been posting prompts here as much as I'd like, and I apologize for being late once again with Monday's Theme. I have had this toothache from hell and haven't been on the computer much. But, here is Monday's Theme, better late than never.


What brings you pleasure? What things to you find decadent that you indulge in occasionally? Or write about anything else that is related to Pleasure.

Happy Writing!

Sunday Prompt

I have been a bad blogger this week and did not do the Monday Theme or Saturday Free For All. So, with my apologies, I offer the prompt for this week that is simply:


Write your story, poem, essay or other work and then leave a comment and link back to your post.

Happy Writing!

Lost in Time

Wow, this week flew by before I even knew it and I didn't post once on this blog. I am so sorry dear readers, I just lost track of the days. I will be posting a prompt tonight or tomorrow morning, so come back later.

Have a great weekend!

Saturday Free For All #5

Okay, I'm a day late with the Saturday Free For All, but better late than never. Today our prompt is the above picture which is by tamdavash416, and I found it at photobucket.

I really like all of tamdavash416's work and I'll probably use more of it in later prompts.

Anyway, craft your story, poem or essay around this image, then comment with your link so we can all check it out!

Have a great day!

Monday's Theme #5

I'm a bit late with Monday's Theme this week, but I've been busy writing. Thank Goddess, had a battle with writer's block last week, but I'm back in the saddle again. So, the theme for this week is:


In our society of consumerism we often forget to be thankful for the blessings that we have as it seems we never have enough. Stop and think about what you are thankful for. What have you been blessed with in this life? Write a poem, story, or essay about Gratitude and leave your link in a comment.

Have a great week!

Saturday Free For All #4

Today, I'm going to post one of my favorite poems and pick some words out of it for you to use in your piece...

by Maya Angelou

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies
I'm not cute or built to suit a model's fashion size
But when I start to tell them
They think I'm telling lies.
I say
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips
The stride of my steps
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please
And to a man
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees
Then they swarm around me
A hive of honey bees.
I say
It's the fire in my eyes
And the flash of my teeth
The swing of my waist
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say
It's in the arch of my back
The sun of my smile
The ride of my breasts
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say
It's in the click of my heels
The bend of my hair
The palm of my hand
The need for my care.
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
That's me.

Okay, I'm going to pick six words, and you choose any three to write your piece around, or if you like use all six.

Pretty, fashion, woman, mystery, smile, and proud.

K, don't forget to comment and leave your link!

Saturday Free For All #3

This is my photo prompt for today. I'm not sure why I picked this one, it just kind of grabbed my attention. I have no idea where I found it, it was just on my computer, so if this is your image, please let me know so I can give you proper credit.

Happy writing!


Oh, and thank you Paisley who found where this picture came from...

Feeding Pets of the Homeless


I know I'm late posting today's prompt, and I will get to it sometime today. You'll have to forgive me, my youngest was in the ER all last night with an allergic reaction to something, so I'm very tired. After a nap, I'll post the prompt.

I hope everyone is having a good weekend!

A Random Prompt

I'm in a much better mood today than I have been. Still not at 100%, but better. So, I decided to offer a random prompt:

What cheers you up? When you're feeling down, what do you do to pull yourself out of the rut? Write about it, in poetry, a short story, essay, whatever you please. Then please leave your link in a comment. Thanks!

I know there's a lot of prompts every week, so I was hesitant to post this one, but decided to anyway.
