July Writing Prompts, Day 1 – An Appetite for Affection

And here I go.  I have been meaning to try these monthly prompt sets from Putting My Feet in the Dirt (https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/).  And July’s prompts are here: https://puttingmyfeetinthedirt.com/2019/07/01/july-2019-writing-prompts/  So, “Settle into your favorite place in the house with a hot drink to warm your waking bones. Once you’ve warmed up a bit; grab your journal, a trusty pen, and a timer. Then, set your timer for ten minutes and begin writing about one of the prompts. Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, neatness, or anything like that; just write! Write about anything and everything that comes to your mind, and don’t stop until the ten minutes are up.”

I’ve decided that my challenge will be to bravely complete these 10 minutes in my blog, posting for all to see.  Yikes!

And today, July 1 (can you believe it?), the prompt is “An appetite for affection”.

They have an appetite for affection.  Cuddles in the morning, followed by scratches in the afternoon, all leading to snuggles in bed at night.  Of course, all on their own terms.  Don’t cuddle us too much, or scratch us where we don’t want you to.  As for snuggles at night, well, it really depends on how much we need your body warmth.  And don’t forget, there are naps to take, breakfast and upper to eat, little pieces of paper to play with.  It’s a busy life for a kitten.

Well, I did write for 10 minutes, but I confess I did not play quite by the rules – story of my life.  I put down my idea, but then went back and spent some time rewriting and editing it.   I also think I should work on letting myself expand my ideas and thoughts beyond a paragraph or two.  I am much more used to writing a sentence or two to go with a photograph.   So, of course, I will end with one of the photos that sparked my idea.  Jasper:  an appetite for affection on his own terms.

  1. Nice! Good list of prompts that I saw over there. I may do this, but just for myself, or maybe post at a later date. Sounds fun. 🙂

  2. I hope you stick with it. Freewriting can produce some real gems!

  3. I’m so glad you’re doing these! Just have fun with them, and don’t worry about going out of order or missing a day once and awhile. Just be inspired to write your heart out. 😉
