Friday Writings #32: The Right Song at the Right Time

 Hello, Word Artists and Admirers! Like a lot of folks, my family has been enjoying the Netflix series Stranger Things. Without giving too much away, part of the plot revolves around the power of a good song, specifically Kate Bush’s Running Up that Hill. That song has had a big resurgence in popularity since being featured in the series, including placing on the pop charts again. I can see why. It was hard for me not to be moved with how much this song brought to a pretty major scene. Though that's part of the magic of the right song hitting at just the right time.

For those of you who want a prompt to work with, I suggest taking a line from a song that moves you on some level and using that to inspire your words (please do mention which song was the inspiration in your post). I’m open to poetry and prose, fiction and non-fiction. One post per person and please keep all prose to 369 words or fewer.

Next week, Rosemary will ask us to respond to the phrase ‘Dream big’.

Friday Writings #31: Genuine Ink

Greetings, my dear poets and storytellers. I hope you are doing well. I’m feeling a wee bit tired, so this post will be short. For today’s prompt, if you wish to use it, I would like you to write poetry or prose inspired by the following lines: “be genuine / in life and ink / rebel against hypocrisy” (feel free to use the actual words, if you like):

As always, if the prompt doesn’t motivate your muse, share a piece of your choosing. Your contribution can be new or old, short or longish (prose pieces should be 369 words or fewer), fiction or nonfiction… Share the direct link to your post. One link per participant, please. Take a moment (or 3) to visit other writers. Share your honest thoughts about their words.

for next week, Rommy will invite us to write a piece inspired by a song lyric. Please, include the title of the song you picked in your post.
