The Prompt: Week 19


Welcome to Week 19 of The Prompt!

First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who linked up for Week 18. I was absolutely thrilled to see people join in again, it really is lovely to see people come back each week, and to welcome new linkers, inspired to write by The Prompt.

I loved reading about your surprises. Unsurprisingly perhaps, several of us wrote about one of life’s last true surprises: are you having a boy or a girl! Opinion was divided on whether we want this to be a surprise or not :)

The idea of The Prompt is to focus on the writing (not that images are banned, but they should not be central!). It is an opportunity to flex our writing muscles a little. Perhaps try something a little different, leave our comfort zone.

To take a ‘prompt’ and write something: a few lines, a few paragraphs, an essay, an anecdote, a story, a poem, a comic strip; anything! For me it’s all about communicating and enjoying the power, inspiration, humour and wonder of words.

The prompt may take the form of a word, a phrase, a topic, a headline, a quote, an emotion or a scenario…

The Prompt for this week is an quote and it is:

Calvin: You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don’t help. Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes


I hope that you are inspired and that you will come back on Friday to link up your post! New posts inspired by The Prompt, or an old one that could have been (!) are equally welcome :)

Each Sunday I will publish The Prompt for that week. The linky will then open the following Friday morning and will stay open until the Thursday after, allowing plenty of time to be inspired and link up!

    1. Not at all! I came across the cartoon at Uni in the early nineties, they are simply brilliant, definitely worth checking out :)
