Last Week's Writing Prompt
I've got a sixth sense for partiesI've got a sixth sense for parties.
oh be my guest, they said it was an open house.
What's shaking your bones; don't we all want one bash?
Which would be the equivalent, of our sane existence?
Oh so appellant you would come, in search of this substance.
Can't you hear I need this, need you, continuously insistent.
Can't you hear the phones? Don't blame me for your hot flash.
You've left empty tones; don't want to wet those eyelashes.
I'm not throwing stones, just come out of your window
Praised by the flashes. Phones and cameras all eyes open.
This is a celebration for you! It's going to be such a trill.
Electrified by the words from your mouth
You provoke in wonder this selcouth case.
Your body taking attention away from your face
Your body's compelling my eyes away from your face
I'm calling you out, all of our friends, let's feast
Feast on this beast, aiming from release.
Directions all the way south but the basements full
The vibrations are shaking us the right way.
Primal SenseYou know that feeling you get, that feeling that someone or something's watching you but there's no one there? Or maybe you're in a crowd when it hits you, and you happen to turn and find the person staring? Or maybe it's the feeling that something's not quite right? All people are born with it, that sixth sense. It's been with mankind since ancient times, back when humans were easy prey and predators stalked every shadow. Children generally have a stronger sense than adults; a survival mechanism against unseen danger during a time when nighttime was the most dangerous time. Next time you're out at night, and you get that feeling that you're being watched, or something's not right listen to that sixth sense it just might save you
The Devils' WorkFrom the balcony you stared at the ground before you
The sky was so calmly clear and blue
Your longing to fly burst out and grew
Overcome by a thrill you never before knew
Your mind you now could no longer call yours
Your heart gave in to the invisible force
She stood by the window, smiling with glee
Experiencing an indescribable ecstasy
She saw the sights of impossible gaiety
But planted so deep, etched in her memory
The tricks of the tribe can come in joy
Danger hidden behind faces of rejoice
His temper surged as he yelled to his wife
Her haughtiness gave the flame a new life
In jealousy and anger, these pests thrive
His hand wrapped around a butcher knife
An emotion so strong he cannot understand
Within time too short for he to comprehend
The thrill, the passion, the inhuman ecstasy
Are telltale signs of the malevolent body
Sixth sense denied, rebranded as fantasy
In the name of logic and scientific study
Not recognising and noticing the devils' work
Provides them a place to stay an
Sixth Sense"Don't get put off, Lils, if you don't get any right." I shuffled the deck of Lily's zener cards and lay five out in front of her. "Concentrate on it, and just say what comes to your mind." She looked at the first card and whispered, "Star." I turned it over. It was a star.
I've known Lily for most of my life, but we've only been going out 2 years. I've seen most of her boyfriends that she's had over the years and when they ask her out she always looks at them for a while and then answers them. She's psychic. I've always known, and never cared.
I know everyone has this potential to be psychic if they practice. It's just Lily has always had the power, without trying. Whenever I have something to tell her, she knows. Some people just say that's because we've best friends forever and she knows me well, but she can tell with everyone. When the teacher gives us homework, she knows. When Amy's pet fish died, she knew.
"D, the next one, I think it's wavy lines." I turned it over. She was righ
This week's writing prompt, from October 22 to October 28, is:
Respond to one of the selected pieces of music:
~www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZJDNS…: Comptine d'un autre été: l'après midi
~www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yna9FI…: Dearly Beloved
~www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHbCE5…: Bohemian Rhapsody
~www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcL---…: Stairway to Heaven
Choose one piece of music and write - what it makes you think of, make it into a story, put it in a story, etc.
There's a choice of four because I figured some people might respond better to an instrumental, and some better to a song with lyrics. And I put two of each because . . . I'm nervous. This is a trial, so I thought it best to cover all bases. I hope everybody will find something to write about! Feel free to submit more than once, since there are effectively four prompts. I should probably do less next time. Your thoughts? Also, ignore the music videos, it was difficult to find the versions I wanted that didn't have a music video. Or don't.
So I received lots of positive feedback about the musical prompt, and decided to go ahead with it. It's a somewhat tricky thing to do, picking a normal prompt that I think will inspire a lot of people in different ways. It's even more difficult with music! So to iron things out, if musical prompts are going to be a recurring thing: this musical prompt is not meant to be a shove-music-down-your-throat business. It's not about anybody's favorite music. I'm trying to pick music I think everyone will be able to respond to in creative ways, and I would really appreciate suggestions! If you know a piece of music that you think would work really well as a prompt, please leave a comment with a link. YouTube links are preferable. Hopefully, this'll be a success and we can keep doing this sort of thing. Also, I really like the artwork idea. Definitely going to try that next time.
