Stop all the Clocks

Today’s prompt is the perfect excuse for me to catapult myself back to blogging. Sadly, I have been ignoring this project of mine for no apparent reason. I cannot explain my sudden sabbatical from writing; I just got a little distracted I guess. Each day, I went over the emails for daily prompts and ignored them with an inexplicable indifference, giving half-baked arguments to myself that I did not have much to contribute towards the topic. I am sorry to say that albeit briefly, I missed the point that the motive was to find a way to relate to these prompts and express myself.

Today, there is no room for unconvincing defenses. This prompt is a godsend as there is no reason to be restricted to any thought or an idea; instead it is time to plunge back into my blog and let my fingers do a freestyle dance over my keyboard. I do often go through phases when words just abandon me. Thankfully sooner or later, something happens which prod them to rekindle their friendship with me.

Having said all that, I do admit that it is very annoying to write when one eye of mine is firmly set on the clock. I like to leave my love for deadlines at work. But at least I am back on the blog and I am feeling happy. I wish that this marks my re entry into my blogging phase because I have a blast during that time. Actually at this moment, a wish to halt time would be more practical. But as Marquez said, wisdom comes to us when it can no longer do any good!

  2. I’m so glad this prompt got you writing again! Since this worked well for you, you might like to take it a step further by using a prompt box: cut a sheet of paper into small slips, write a word or phrase on each slip – “pine cones,” “kilts,” “suitcase” – fold the slips, and place them in a vessel that you can pull the prompts from for your ten minute writes. I like to keep a box full of prompts so that when my words are stuck I can pull a slip of paper from the prompt box, read what it says (ice cream, prairies, morning light), set a timer, and write whatever pops into my head for ten minutes. Have fun 🙂
