The Prompt: Week 23


Welcome to Week 23 of The Prompt!

First of all, a huge thank you to everyone who linked up for Week 22. 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 views on rules. Quite a number of us feel that while certain rules must be kept, we need to provide a safe framework for making mistakes too.

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.

These writing prompts 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 a quote and it is:

Why not go out on a limb? That’s where the fruit is. Mark Twain


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 :)

Please note that there will be no Prompt this coming Friday (20 June) as I will be at BritMums and I’m taking a day off! So, you have two weeks to get your thinking caps on this time, and the linky will open on Friday 27 June!

You can learn more about The Prompt here.


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!
