I've been thinking a lot about what kind of prompt to use today. I try out one idea and then another. None seem to quite fit my mood at the moment.
I've been left with more questions than answers about what to write.
It hit me like a bomb. The answer to my question! It's questions!
I have so many questions in life. I'm sure you do, too.
The main question I have at this exact moment is: why did Unsplash give me an image of a cigar and a Jack Daniels whiskey glass when I searched for "bomb" to use as my next image?
Also, when I was searching for a lead image, why did it give me a dog raising it's paw?
I will never know the answer to that one.
I often think of random questions. Such as: Why is bedroom spelled as one word but living room is spelled as two?
Of course there are the big questions: Why are we here? What is our purpose? What does God look like? Is God even real?
Then there are the little questions: What am I going to wear today? Why is my shirt on backward? Where did I get that bruise?
There are nagging questions: Will I ever be good enough? Will I ever have enough? What happens when I get too old? What is the Market doing? Will BCH Lambo?
I also have many questions about finances: should I use a bot? What are dapps? Are the crypto mining games worth it? When should I sell? Should I buy more?
Of course I always have parenting questions: Did I do well by my kids? Are they capable? Do they love me? Was I too strict? Too much like my own parents? Not enough like my own parents? Did I screw them up?
I have questions as a daughter: Are my parents too old to live on their own? Does my mom have Alzheimer's? Does PaPa take care of his heart? Should I go visit them? If I go visit them should I fly (I'll be stuck there until the return flight) or drive (it takes longer but I can leave any time I want)?
I have mundane questions as a wife: When is he coming home from work today? What will I cook? Will he bring home any funny stories? Will he be in a good mood? Will he be too tired?
I have questions about my animals: Are they healthy? Are their under eyelids pink enough? Is their coat falling out? Do they need more copper? How is my little JuJuB? Do I need to clean inside her ears? Will Joy still be alive when I come outside today? What am I going to do with all this milk?
I'm sure you have many questions of your own. Some may be burning questions. The kind you continue to ask. The kind you MUST know the answer to.
Some questions are silly.
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
What is chucking wood?
Some are rhetorical.
What is the sound of one hand clapping?
Some are crucial.
Did I already salt the food I'm cooking?
Some deal with a potential future.
When will I be able to retire?
Some are about the past.
How did I screw that up so thoroughly?
And there is the best question of all, especially for writers.
This week, I'd like you to consider the nature of questions. What are some questions you have? Do you have answers? Every wonder what the first question the first person ever asked?
How do you find answers to your questions?
You can go deep or dark or deep and dark. You can go silly and funny. You can answer the questions or leave them for readers to answer. You can write fact or fiction. You can write a poem or an essay. You can set a timer or write for hours. Whatever you like, as long as you follow the 5 rules.
There is no deadline. This is the internet. These prompts will be here forever. You can write about them forever.
Sometimes a with it thought stays with me even after I write about it. Sometimes I may need to write about it again. And again. This is allowed! Even a year from now.
Note: This prompt series has taken off beyond all of my wildest imaginings. I'm gratified it is so popular. I'm so happy I've been able to encourage and motivate writers to write.
I do try to read each and every article. But. I do have a lot of work to do outside of read. cash. I may not be able to get to your article. This is not because I am uninterested. Rather it is because I am only one me and I just may not have time in a 24 hour period.
Another note: be generous with your tips to each other. If you take the time to read what a person has taken the time to write, give an honest thumb and leave a comment. It may have taken them hours to write. Or just moments. It doesn't matter. They deserve at least a penny. More pennies would be better.
I promise you, you will get back what you put into this platform.
