Are you writing every day? Or taking a photograph? Or doing one creative act that stimulates your mind outside of the routine?
20 Lines a Day is about feeding that creative part of you, to keep you writing, even a little, every day.
Whether it’s a prompt, or an image that moves you, write it down and share it with us. It does not have to be a finished work — not at all. The point is to keep writing.
I’ll share an image today. What will you share?
Taken about two weeks ago…..it’s been a long road….but the bumps aren’t quite as bad…
How much…..I mean everyday how much interactive crap from unwanted people do we need to put up with… It seems now days everyone is searching for perfection from others in the way they view their life. There is no compromise left what so ever. I for one am not perfect nor will I ever be perfect so to those of you looking for perfection or others to deal with your own version of perfection GOOD LUCK. I am single and to tell the truth probably will be for a while. Thanks for letting me go…wow I already feel better
Thinking out loud
Staring at clouds
Weather’s sunny and clear
Of this transparent sphere
Racing out of control
Whichever way to go
Into the future my thinking will travel
Thoughts of the past start to unravel
Looking straight-faced to radiating blue
As always beaming the truth
I jump to a noise
As it all crashes down
One second in time
There is no sound
In case you might have an interest in this, I offer the Daily Post Challenge. Just go to dailypost.wordpress.com.
There you will find daily prompts for writers and weekly prompts for photographers. There’s a new writing prompt every day, and I’ve been using it to stir the creativity. I find it a good source.
I’m sure some of you are already aware of it and are even using it, but just in case it could benefit others, here it is. Go for it.
And be sure to share what you’ve written. That’s what community is all about.
… so quietly that you don’t even realize it. There was no alarm. No bell. Not even a ringing in your ears. Nothing lets you know that the moment that just got by you was the one that you should have reached for and held onto. That it won’t come back again, even if you beg. That you are left in a permanent state of watching her walk away.
That’s okay, you tell yourself. There will be another one.
You silently hope. You wish it to be true. You hope that life will be kind and you will keep on getting chances just like the one that kissed your cheek, then turned away.
The truth is, we never know, do we?
I am blessed by this community and by the gifts you share of yourself every day. Coming here always makes me smile, and I know I’m not the only one that feels that way.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Just took a peek at the stats, and while this is something I usually never do, it feels like a milestone and I thought I would share it with you.
Happy 50,000+ visitors to 20 Lines. I thought I’d let you know.
Cheers, and happy everything,
the window I see , it shows it all
all the seasons right thru fall
the clouds I see can predict my future
shapes ever-changing as they get fewer
the dark of night it seeps on in
sun peaking in, it makes me grin
reflections show , but always look assumed
looking directly out , all seem well-groomed
my eyes pop open and my windows gone
I roll out of bed with a gigantic yawn
rubbing my eyes I can almost weep
can’t wait till tonight so I can sleep
I was walking out the front door and noticed the Mr. Lincoln rose was particularly beautiful. I used my cell phone to snap a pic. The water droplets didn’t come through as crisp as I would have liked…you can see the sheen of the droplets. This rose is a fragrant reminder of my mom’s love of roses. First generated in 1964, the rose was transplanted from my folk’s house after their deaths and the sale of their home.
Just one more day to go
Yes February will soon be but a memory
We have broken so many records with our snow
I know I show you pretty pictures but trust me it has been dreary.
As the rains fall hard in our yard today
Birds are eating what I have offered them with added fury
Then I watch as they rush back to their fray
I bet when the sun comes back they too will be in their glory
February has been a lot like winters of past
The snow just kept dumping on us blast after blast
Snowfall records have even been surpassed
I am really amazed with all this snow and ice I did not end up wearing a CAST!
Thank you March for coming along hurry please
I will turn a year older wiser as well I am sure
I am actually looking forward to flowers covered with bees
I guess as I reflect upon these words if it was always spring I would be bored.
JUST ONE MORE DAY TO GO!
