Sunday January 5, 2020 Writing Prompt

Inspiration Call: * Timed Writing *

Choose a set time to write, 5 −7 minutes serves well. Set a timer, watch the clock. Stop writing when the time is up, even in the middle of a sentence. In timed writing, you write for a short, prescribed period of time. The purpose of timed writing is to prime the creative pump: shortening writing time makes sure you have more to say than time to say it. The frustration of stopping creates the impetus to write more. You become more interested in the ideas and thoughts you want to put down and less self-conscious about the times it’s taking to write. This exercise also helps develop confidence and establishes creative tension.

  1. Imagination is such a playful partner. Can you for a moment conjure such a sight where a little man with a funny hat sits so mysteriously upon his pachyderm? What could he, indeed, be thinking and what sort of adventures have they led?

    Pachyderm Parade

    What a ponderous plight
    perched upon a pachyderm
    are you perhaps
    patrolling for purple parrots?

    Pardon me
    but they are a persnickerous pack
    as they lack any sort of polite
    parading past your pachyderm
    clearly lacking permission or tact.

  2. Panic

    Panic attacks over come me
    always happen when I turn on the news
    in case I hear our dear leader
    constant chaos around us


  3. Tiger burning bright

    tiger running from the flames
    running for his life
    chased by the chaos
    unleashed by the humans

    who continue to destroy
    the entire world
    for the profits of the rich

    the tiger runs away
    deeper into the wilderness
    trying to avoid
    the reach of humanity

    but to no avail
    as the world burns
    tiger burning bright


  4. Cthullu angels of love

    two cherubs
    angels of love
    dispatched to earth

    by the secret god
    that controls the world

    the hidden god
    the ancient god Cthulhu
    who was here

    before Jehovah
    before Allah
    before Zeus
    and the other ancient gods

    the cherubs
    spread out
    searching for true love
    a gift from humanity

    from the much feared
    and misunderstood
    Cthulhu, the evil God
    of the ancient world


  5. Trump’s Fence

    Trump’s fence is being build along the border
    Responding to the national emergency
    Undocumented evil alien hordes
    millions of brown people marching across the desert wasteland
    Preparing to rape, pillage, and kill decent Christians

    Fences and walls have never worked
    Even the Great Wall and Hadrian’s wall
    Not enough to keep the barbarians at bay
    Certainty a huge waste of money and resources
    Enough though perhaps to satisfy his rabid white base
