A source of anxiety

#342: Write about a noise — or even a silence — that won’t go away. (We’ll let you interpret this in different ways…)

A noise… a silence… I’ve currently got a calling. I’m being called to the land of nod and my cosy warm bed. Does that count?

As is probably the same for many other people, this time of year has become increasingly hectic. It doesn’t help that I’ve got a poorly wrist, making everything I do take that little bit longer. And not forgetting my work Mac having an absolute meltdown today. Hopefully I’ll get some time during my lunch break tomorrow to write the prompt, as writing through sleepy eyes is not the one!

The power of touch

#339: Textures are everywhere: The rough edges of a stone wall. The smooth innocence of a baby’s cheek. The sense of touch brings back memories for us. What texture is particularly evocative to you?

Soft bedding and pyjamas 😀 It always evokes cosy times such as past birthdays and Christmases. Eight more working days to go… Not that I’m counting at all haha.

The golden hour

#300: 6:00AM: the best hour of the day, or too close to your 3:00AM bedtime?

I wouldn’t quite say that 6am is the best hour of the day – it’s when I have to get up for work and, at least lately, I’m quite reluctant to get out of my cosy bed! I can’t remember the last time I went to bed even remotely close to 3am… must have been back in my uni days no doubt. I don’t think I could function going to bed at 3am and then back up three hours later – sounds like a major headache!

If I had to chose the best hour of the day, on a weekday it would hands-down have to be 7pm, when I’m home in the warm. Whereas, on the weekend, that’s a toughie as there are quite a few best hours…

* 65 more prompts to go until 2014 is officially over!!! How has it gone so fast?!


#250: What’s the one luxury you can’t live without?

I wouldn’t say that I own many luxurious items, what with still trying to “break the industry”. That said, however, I believe that one persons luxury is another persons norm. So, the first thing that came to mind was my bed – even though it’s insanely old and I need a new one, I still consider it to be the cosiest luxury I own and really couldn’t live without. I often tend to forgot how fortunate I am to even have one when millions of people around the world have to share a floor, for example, with ten siblings. Plus what I saw on Friday still haunts me and really makes me appreciate the things and people I do have in my life.


#223: Is political correctness a useful concept, or does it stifle honest discussion?

I’m going to keep this short as I’ve had an absolutely mental day, with another one directly ahead of me and in all honesty, am just looking forward to my bed!

Political correctness is… actually do you know what, I am way too tired to be tackling such a big subject. A case of “wrong prompt, wrong time”!
