Tuesday’s Inspiration #1- Valentine’s Day

With Valentine’s being just around the corner, I thought we’d start Tuesday’s Inspiration with a nice little theme- love. Now I know a lot of people absolutely detest Valentine’s Day, and I can understand that, so this prompt is not just surrounding Valentine’s, simply love in general. This week’s prompt is also inspired by an article I read a few weeks ago, where small children were made to describe what they think love is (you can read the article here).
I loved the sweet simplicity of the children, yet how innovative and deep their ideas were. And so I ask you to answer this question for me-
What is love?
What comes to mind when you think of love.? Write a short story or a poem showing what you believe love is, whereas it’s hope, pain, sorrow or sadness. Whether you’re spending Valentine’s with your husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or a room full of scruffy yet adorable stray cats, I think this is a great activity to write about. So much has been written about love, but what’s your take on it? Make it original, make it yours!
Happy writing!

New Feature- Tuesday’s Inspiration

Hi guys, I’d just like to pop in with another announcement for you all. Recently, I’ve been thinking of different ways I could make this blog a little better and also let it be helpful for other writers out there instead of just showcasing my own work all the time. Firstly, I’ve introduced the Feedback page, and now I’m introducing something brand new- Tuesday’s Inspiration. What is this magical thing I hear you ask?

Inspiration. Because what writer doesn’t need a bit of a spark on a Tuesday afternoon?

Tuesday to me has always been a day overshadowed by the rest. Monday is the daunting, dull start to the week that trudges slowly by and Wednesday is our half-way point to Friday which we stampede towards without looking back. With all that rush Tuesday is often overlooked, and passes without much memory. So what better way to make your Tuesday’s meaningful and worthwhile than by spending them writing?

So from now on, each week I’ll post a little bit of inspiration for you all, be it a song I think is good to write to, a picture or a simple text prompt. Prompts have been my friend for a long time, helping me get my mind working on something new, and I hope these little bits of inspiration can help you writers splash your talent onto page.

Make sure to stop by next Tuesday when the first post will be put up, and I hope you enjoy them all! If you have any suggestions for prompts or songs you want posted, fill a form in the Feedback page and I’ll make sure to get back to you. Have a go at them, and make sure to comment or link your work to me; I love reading stuff from the talents of the web. Happy writing, all!
