prompt 185 A Bit of a Daydreamer

November 28, 2013

First of all, happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it!

This prompt has no theme, no structure, no direction or form. Let’s go wild! Let’s dance on our gears and spin our wheels. Let’s daydream.

I love to daydream. It often produces thoughts that are astonishingly clear. I’ve actually solved a few problems by daydreaming. My muse loves a bit of it, too, so I hope yours does also.

Ready? I’d like you to sit in silence for a moment, and let your mind slip into daydream mode. Or look out the window, if silence isn’t possible. Or let your focus flutter about the room where you are sitting (or through that window), and then wait for your eye to settle on something. Catch that first thought that floats by. In all likelihood, that’s what your muse wants to write about. Go with it: free-write, and tidy-up later, if needed. Take that object out for lunch or take that thought on a journey. Let your pen exhaust your muse.

Have fun, and I hope that you and your muse enjoy the conversation! I can’t wait to read all of your creations.

    Hi Misky! Love the prompt. I am sorry I missed the last two weeks, life is demanding right now. I am going to give this a try.

      Hi Pamela! Not to worry. The prompts don’t disappear, so you can always use one later, if you wish. Happy Thanksgiving to you.

    Hi, Misky!!

    I’m sharing this with PA today too but this is one that I’ve literally been daydreaming about for a few weeks.

    Feel free to share any insights about it with me, if it pleases you.

    Thank you for the prompting!!

    Hi, everyone! Here is a link to my flight of fancy:

    Thank you for the wonderful prompt!

    P.S. I love the picture – living inside a clock would be fun if it weren’t for the constant and “mysterious” ticking noise within 🙂

    I always have fun, but this one may be a form too far!

      I love the latest tweaks made to the last stanza. Nicely done. 🙂

    Sort of a recap, but that’s how it works sometimes.

    What a great prompt. I wrote four poems with it before I could decide which one to post! 😀
