Yesterday was -17° F. Today freezing rain is predicted. I do not know about you, but it is too cold and miserable to try to pursue anything fresh and novel. Especially on a Monday. Cabin fever anyone?
So, I am going to repeat a post I did on a now defunct blog. but it will be new for this one.
Writing prompts are a good way to break out of a writer’s block, they can also kick start new ideas and they can provide a fun way to relax with that cup of coffee or tea. One of my favorite prompts, of the ones I’ve managed to collect over the years, asked the writer to create a limerick. While I did not adhere strictly to the form, I think I came very close. Besides, I had a lot of fun working on it and that is what is most important.
A young lass, who worked as a tutor,
Was matched up by friends with a suitor.
His manner were lacking,
She sent him packing,
“I’d rather make love to a computer.”
