Standing here on the rooftop of her apartment building, she could see the view for miles around her.

She stretched her arms towards the sky, connecting with the nature and disciplined her body and mind to obey her will.

An hour spend doing yoga every day worked wonders for releasing all the stress in her life and she felt rejuvenated after each session.

Time to write—Money [Creative Writing Prompt]

I need money!

We all do.

But is money the most important thing in life?

Despite what most people think, I think that money is of secondary importance.

To be realistic and practical, we have to admit that there are a very few thing in life which come for free.

Being born and dying needs money.

Getting education and job needs us to spend money.

Marriage, home and family…. all of these need money to some extent.

It is true that we can make do with little and don’t need to spend loads of it to achieve the desired results in life.

So it is decided that we do need it, but it it should never become our only aim in life. Give it as much importance as we give to other essentials, like food, sleep etc. Do not think that if you have enough money, you will live the perfect life or that you will always be happy. Having money never guarantees good health, long life or eternal bliss. Be realistic and find things that you can do to make your life happy, without all of the emphasis being on money!

The prompt;

Write a story about the word above – Money.

If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your post in the comments below and I’ll share it next week. Please be sure to link back to my blog so your readers know where you got the prompt!

Dream vacation

Going abroad and visiting foreign countries is always exciting. Some people do it for a living. Others for adventure. I am always excited to travel and look forward to seeing new places and eating the local cuisine there. But this narrative is not about a trip we took to a foreign country. It is about a vacation that I want to take with my husband. It is still in planning stage but I felt that with so many prompts, pointing towards this direction, I should write about this dream vacation. We have been planning to visit England some day, with visits to Scotland and Ireland thrown into it. It is an ambitious plan and would be quite expansive but there a lot of places we want to visit in Great Britain. We want to explore London first of all. My husband has been there when he was just a kid, but I have just passed through London in transit. Then there are a few cousins living there who are always inviting us so we plan to visit them as well. Going to Scotland is on the list because of its amazing natural beauty and the historical places.

In response to the following prompts;

Narrative

FOWC;

Abroad

Word of the day challenge;

Stream of Consciousness Saturday May 17-2019

Quickly, I have to complete this post and attend to other pending stuff. I am traveling early next week and have yet to organize my packing and other stuff. Writing blog post may be suspended for a couple of days, or I may reblog some of my older posts. Post dating a couple of post is a good idea too, but then I will have to find time to write them. It is something I have yet to figure out that we have the same amount of time in both situations but when we are rushed, we don’t seem to get things done properly or on time. And when there is no rush, we have even time to spare after completing our tasks.

I guess it’s where theory of relativity comes in!

The prompt;

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “adverb.” Start your post with any adverb and just run with it. Have fun!

Esoteric information

I can understand your quizzical expression

This is an esoteric discussion for a privilege few

Not everyone’s cup of tea, intended for a select group

The discussion of the patterns of inherited genes

Can give a spin to any one’s imagination

But sometimes these technical details are hard to understand

So if this information is too much of an overload

You are invited to step outside into the fresh air

And enjoy the scenic gardens instead of stuffy lounge

Enter the real world and leave the discussion of the virtual one behind

 

In response to the following prompts;

Your daily word prompt;

Esoteric

FOWC;

Quizzical

RDP;

Patterns

Word of the day challenge;

Virtual

Not just my verse, your two, two too; Ode to the writer of the words ( Continued)

A Guy Called Bloke’s Start

I am quite the writer you know, it has to be said,
My imagination runs wild, loose and amok,
Creating literary havoc within my head,
Luckily, however, I haven’t experienced writer’s block!

Fandango’s Addition

Each morning I think about topics on which to post
But what stirs my imagination by far the most
As I try to conjure up what it is I want to write
Is using the daily prompts while keeping my writing tight.

Leigha Robbins Addition

Sometimes the words leave me to struggle

But that’s when I take the words and juggle

To fit them into their proper place

Where they do more than take up space

 

Sandy’s Addition

The words they come, the words they go

At times MIA, a total no show

In the end, it’s all worthwhile

When flowing freely, one big smile

Angie of King Ben’s Grandma‘s Addition

More words do I read, than write, by far
Writers are my heros, like rock stars
Through all my troubles, pain and strife
Words have comforted me, saved my life

Grandma passes the baton to Beckie of Beckie’s Mental Mess

Writing is artistry without a brush but with a pen,

You start with a beginning and surprise yourself with the end,

Word prompts, picture prompts, sentence prompts work on our imagination,

Where ever our minds take us, we end up with some kind of creation.

 

Beckie passed the challenge on to Tales From The Mind of Kristian

 

Here is Kristian’s addition:

These virtual worlds that we create in our heads

The possibilities, endless with more patterns to find

The plots, esoteric or quizzical with many varied threads.

Show the deepest, darkest recesses of the creative mind.

 

So I am going to pass the baton to Sadje of Keep it Alive

And here is my two bits;

I write for the love of writing and the need to say something

Crafting ideas and giving them expression on my space

Sometimes it is an effortless flow straight from my mind

Then there are days when nothing comes, it is all in a bind

I will pass this to Di of Pensitivity 101, a prolific writer.

Tale Weaver #223–Search May 16/19

I have a belief.

That people belonging to the Zodiac sign, Libra cannot find something which is under their noses.

This is a …. fact. Verified by the many people belonging to this sign. I have family members and close friends who are Libras and they ALL exhibit this remarkable quality.

If you tell them where something is, they won’t find it. If you give detailed instructions as how to find it, they won’t. Even if you draw a map and give it to them, they …… won’t find it.

It not that they are any less intelligent then others, or they are shortsighted. Nopes!

They just can’t find lost, misplaced or even things which are right in front of their noses, literally!

I have met many people from this Sun Sign and they all are like that. Some even admit to it. Other won’t but if you put it to test, I will be proved right.

So they will search for something for ages, which is laying there right in front of them.

Interesting, isn’t it.

In response to;

MLMM-Tale Weaver #223-Search

The prompt;

We all spend times in our lives searching for something be it, love, the way home, the past, the list goes on.

The task this week is to weave a tale in which ‘search’ features. Go where the prompt takes you and have fun.

I always want to frighten them more.

(Shirley Jackson, We Have Always Lived In The Castle 38)

The castle is open to the public on every Monday. People queue up, pay an entrance fee and are given a guided tour by one of the oldest employ of the family, their trusted butler. Special places of interest are the towers, especially the north tower which is the highest. It faces the woods at the back of the estate and the view from there is quite gloomy. But there is a story attached to this which is a major tourist attraction. The butler tells the tale of the suicide of one of the daughters of the family long ago, embellishing it with gory details. He has introduced a villain in the story, of his own making and has also added other details to make it more believable.When asked why he would make an already tragic story more so, he would say brazenly “I always want to frighten them more

Blogging—- I did it ; 1000 posts!

Eight months!

It took me eight months and a few days to get to this milestone.

Just wanted to share this bit of good news with you all. So if I was like Fandango, I would post an analysis of my posts. How many on which genre or topic. But I am;

A. Too lazy

B. Short on time

So let’s just say that apart from a few reblogs, I have written that many post.

They include poems, short stories and dedicated blog posts. I am happy with most of them. If they all are not good, they have helped me to write better. And that is what counts.

I want to write stuff that makes my readers think, make them smile or just something silly to suit the prompt. The aim of my blog is still;

” To address the issues women over fifty are facing “

But along the way I am learning to write, I am getting better at expressing myself and I hope I am making fewer mistakes in my grammar and spellings.(The fact that WordPress took away the spellcheck has made me a bit conscious about it!)

So thank you, everyone for reading what I write. You are kind enough to encourage me, give me useful advice and like what I post. I would never have written this much if you weren’t reading it!

Twittering Tales #136 – 14 May 2019

Photo by NRD at Unsplash

The fridge door was open and the room was lit by its faint light. He reached in and grabbed a drumstick and was about to take a bite when there was a loud crash. He turned around and was rooted to the spot in fright. The cat was staring at him, it’s eye like green flint.
