Good morning and welcome to my new feature, Monthly Writing Prompt! One of my blogging plans is to focus more on everything that has to do with writing. Therefore, I thought it would be quite a good challenge to start a monthly writing feature. I’m actually pretty excited about this!
It’s very simple, really. Every month I will share one sentence (created by me, of course) and you’ll write a paragraph starting with the prompt I’ve provided. I will add mine in this post, and you can share yours by commenting below.
Are you ready? Let’s go!
This month’s writing prompt is…
Dear diary, I can’t believe it’s been fifteen years since I wrote on these pages.
And here’s my paragraph.
Dear diary, I can’t believe it’s been fifteen years since I wrote on these pages. I was a stupid kid, was I? Always causing trouble, getting into fights and binge-drinking… No wonder she took after me. I have no idea why I’ve found you in her room, you were cleverly hidden inside a shoe box behind all of her stuff. The stuff that I can’t bring myself to clear out now that she’s gone. Did she do what she did because of me? To show me what a lousy-ass father I was? Well, who could blame her? I wish she would have told me how much she hated me, instead of doing what my pathetic young self did back then… Maybe she’d still be here now.
What do you think? Let me know how you feel about my prompt and feel free to leave yours in the comments below!
