Blade #writephoto

A month away from Sue’s #writephoto prompt. I don’t know how I managed to stop myself from participating!

But, service is more or less back to normal, and here is my take!

A little silly humour…


“I’m going to do it.”
“What?”
“I’m taking the plunge… or the cut, so to speak.”
“Speak sense, you silly man!”
“I’m getting rid of it. Every single strand. Chop. That’s it. Frizz, be gone!”
“So you’re finally cutting that mop off?”
“Yup. Ten years I’ve been cultivating this – this mess. And for what? So the students could laugh at me, and make fun of my style? Honestly, I thought I looked rather becoming…”
“Er, no dear. It was never becoming. Definitely a defining feature of yours though. I’ll be glad of the clear plughole after you’ve showered though. You never quite got the hang of cleaning the plug, did you?”
“Whatever.”
“But, erm, why do you have that old sword of yours in your hands? You weren’t thinking of using that for your chop, were you?”
“Well, yeah… It feels appropriate. It was a sacrificial sword, you know. And I feel like I’m sacrificing my hair for some respect from the pupils.”
“Yeah, well, as long as you remember that’s a plastic replica you’ve got there…”

Write about THE LAUNCH!

And…
Lift off!
The launch went perfectly.
Or so everyone thought.
Peter shuffled backwards, and into the crowd, allowing his shuffle turn into a sprint as soon as he was able.
Looking down at the bag in his hand once he stopped, he gulped.
Shame he’d forgotten to load the toilet paper!

The Launch, because in literally a couple of days a certain lady named Ms De Black is launching her debut novel in her Eden East Trilogy, Keepers! A YA Fiction piece that promises to please fans of JK Rowling, Genevieve Cogman Trudy Canaan and the like!

She has been literally run off her feet with the organisation involved in writing and publishing a book, as well as penning writers help book, and workbook, and working, and being a fantastic mum, and being the Super Boss of the ABBA’s!!!!

So, no wonder she forgot to fill the body of the prompt post first thing this morning lol! Still, a timely reminder meant that no one went without their weekly #Writespiration fix!

Anyhow, I’ve downloaded my copy…. And you? Stop procrastinating…

A Writers Prayer #ThrowbackThursday

Browsing through my reader, as I do every morning, I came across this post by Lucy Mitchell, aka. Blonde Write More. (Have you been to her blog? If you haven’t, get your ass over there, she is tooo funny!)

Well, today she was talking about the Writer’s Prayer, and what you could be saying to Him Up There in your nightly prayers.

Inspiration hit me and this was the prayer I left in her comments, inspired by the Lords Prayer. (It’s ingrained in my head, despite being Sikh, not Christian, as I went to a Heart of England Church school so we recited this every day in assembly…!)

The Writer’s Prayer

Our Father, My art is writing
I want literary fame
Let inspiration come
And this first draft be done
In my head, as well as on paper
Let me reach, today, my daily word count
And forgive my grammar mistakes
Spellcheck and Grammarly will correct them
And Beta readers will guide me
And correct my direction
For their opinion is important
They will be buyers
And also my editors
AMEN
🙇🏽

Tower – #writephoto

Sue’s #WritePhoto prompt this week:

“So, whaddya think, babe?”

Ken gestured towards an old ruin, a single tower standing amongst some dilapidated arches and crumbling steps.

Barbie sucked in her breath… and exhaled fast, taking several fast gulps of air before she remembered what her Yoga teacher had taught her about calming herself, and slowed down the intakes of breath, counting to ten before turning to her boyfriend.

“Exactly where have you brought me? I thought we were surprising each other by acting out our fantasies, not nightmares!” She looked around, turning her nose up at the mud and grass all around.

“But I thought you wanted to be a princess?” Ken was puzzled. He had racked his brains to surprise her. “See… there’s a tower, and look!” He rummaged in the holdall he had slung across his torso. “Here’s your hair!”

Barbie recoiled in horror as he pulled out a wig that consisted of six-foot-long synthetic blonde hair, displaying it proudly.

“What? You expect me to wear that??”

“Well, it’s not me that wanted to be Rapunzel, is it?” Ken stared at the retreating figure of his girlfriend. “Babe? Babe! Come back! I even got you a tiara!”
