Red Lettering

Stories will not be written easily. A story without a heart is dead, and the only place it will get a heart is from the author.

Writing Prompt: 10/28/2016

Origin: “Riversong,” by the Von Trapp Children, “The von Trapp Children Volume II” (Lyrics below)

Feeling inspired? Write something from this prompt! Actually, I’m aware that this video might be a tad difficult to write one thing from, so I’m posting this particular writing prompt more as a general inspiration. But if you do write something, I would love to see it! You can leave a response in the comments, or move the prompt to your blog, and leave a link in the comments! 

Lyrics: 

Shule aroon [“walk, my love”] away to waters by the sea;
It’s a churning yearning river!

You can cast your burdens there upon the glass;
Just a skip of a polished pebble.

Dreamers, lovers, listen sweetly:
Let the waters wash away your tears.

Poets, teachers, listen keenly:
Wonder not, your course is led by God.

Sing and dance!
Do a reel to the tune of a babbling tale.
Do you heal to the tune of a babbling tale?

Let your heart be glad.
Let the song of the river take you away!
Let the song of the river take 
you away!

Don’t let the sun set on hearts of stone.
Turn to the river of life.

Wisdom and nature are true to God.
Be it river or tree set you free!
Go with a heart full of grace.

Come now, sing and dance.
Do a reel to the tune of a babbling tale.
Do you heal to the tune of a babbling tale?

Let your heart be glad.
Let the song of the river take you away!

Dance to the tune; sing to the moon;
aye shule aroon; oh, shule aroon.
Let the river take you!

Fourth writing prompt in a row. This is record, even for me. :p Apologies, dear readers. Life tends to get in the way of things. I will have this blog running at full-speed again eventually; I hope to get a chance to work on in December, after NaNoWriMo is over. For those of you other writers doing NaNo, how goes it with you?

Now, for those of you concerned and sharp-eyed readers who have noticed that this is the third writing prompt in a row, be not concerned! This blog has not been entirely taken over by writing prompts, and I hope to soon be back to the previously known posting schedule. It turns out that leaving a blog alone for almost half a year makes it slightly harder to slip back into a normal posting rhythm, but we are getting there, and I greatly thank you for your patience during the time of silence and, now, slow reawakening.

Origin“Stepping Through,” by BPKelsey. Note that I do not know this artist, nor this artist’s other work. If you do look the artist up, look out for nasty beasts that you may find out there.

If you’re feeling inspired, write something about this picture!

You can put it here in the comments, or post it on your own blog and leave a link in the comments. I can’t wait to see what you talented writers come up with!

I know, it’s amazing, isn’t it? I’m finally posting another writing prompt!

I’ve seen this picture several times, and I really love it. I can’t wait to see what you brilliant people do with it! This is, A Centaur in Disguise, by Michelle Toro. I don’t know the artist, nor her other work, so beware if you decide to look her up. 

If you’d like to write something from this prompt (and you want to share it. Because I suppose you could always lock it up in a dusty folder and forget about it), you can comment on this blog post with what you wrote, or post it on your own blog and leave a link in the comments! Either way, I would love to read it (how can you have an uninteresting story with a picture like that?).

Please, though, keep whatever you write from this prompt pretty clean. My younger brothers and sisters read this blog and have a great time looking through what you awesome people write – I don’t want to have to delete anything. Violence is okay, a little blood is okay, but please, no foul language or “mature” content.
