As I've been going through my old posts to label the prompts I've come across a few that I wanted to make use of again. So I'm getting started today with my favorite one: the random CD prompt.
Here's how it works: grab a CD at random and pick a track, or flip through the play list on your iPod (or whatever) to find a random track, and then use the very first line of your song as the first line of your poetry or prose. Then just go wherever it takes you (and let us know which song you used!).
Oh, before I forget again, I wanted to mention one last Christmas gift I received. My parents got me a gift certificate for MEC and Kat and I went on Saturday to use it on these snowshoes. She picked up a pair for herself and we can't wait to get back up to the mountains for fun like this:
Alright, now you can go write.
Night swimming deserves a quiet night
In mid-summer with stars shining bright,
A lake rippling with lazy strokes,
And a breeze that carries campfire smoke.
Life in the city can get crowded;
It's easy for sight to get clouded.
But in the silence of the country
There is room to be, room to see.
Thoughts grow still and breath begins to slow,
When you have nowhere you need to go.
So find the time to go night swimming,And see life without all the trimmings.
