JanO 31

jan31 So we reach the end of another JanO with more things to think about. Today write about things “you would like to perform” and things “you will always remember about last year.” If you’re a blogger or an essayist or a memoirist, these could be interesting prompts for some true tales and reflections. If you’re a fiction writer, maybe these will generate conversations among some of our characters. Either way, give it a shot.

It’s been fun sending these to you again this year. Mark your calendar for Jan. 1, 2020.

And happy writing!

JanO 30

jan30We find a grumbly face, a bunch of beans, that studded chalice plus an octopus and a rearing snake. Is the face grumbly because there is only one more day of JanO prompts this year? Not likely. But this combination might be your impetus to come up with an interesting alphabet tale for kids.

JanO 29

jan29It’s pretty frigid here in the north. We’re snow covered and setting new LOW temperatures for daily highs all over. Sounds like writing weather to us.

So here’s another idea for the futurist — or fantasy — writers among us. What can you write about things “that went too far” and things “you wish could replace oil to create power”? Maybe this could be a basis for some world building.

JanO 28

jan28OK, if we start with the house and go clockwise, we also see a face looking a little sad and a little puzzled, a cloud passing in front of a rainbow, and an arrow point to a parachutists drifting under a billowing parachute. Can you turn these into a little story today?

JanO 27

jan27 Here’s one for futurist or steam punk or contemporary imaginations. Spend a few words on things “you hope will never be done by robots” (maybe it ties in with your Siri ideas) and things “that should have their own festivals.” What are the odds for Robot Days?

JanO 26

jan26We’ve reached the last Saturday in January. Only a few more days to a daily writing habit. Or  few more days to start one.

And for today’s prompts we have more things to think about. Write about things “you would like to ask Siri,” and things “you don’t like to do but have to.” Don’t those fit together well? But don’t think only about the mundane. Think big! Or really, really tiny.

JanO 25

jan25 It’s in the cards again. Things that “you would like to use crowdfunding to raise money for” and things “you would like to take back.” At first glance, these seem contradictory. But you might be able to imagine a way they could work together. Or maybe you’d just like to write two short pieces. After all, the month is nearly over and maybe you missed a day or two earlier. Think about it.
