I have always wanted to be a writer.  Ever since I can remember.  My mother has, in her basement, what I thought of as "books" that I wrote when I was five and six years old.  When I was eleven or twelve, I decided to write a book (which turned out to be embarrassingly reminiscent of The Outsiders, my main literary influence at the time).  

But, now that I have time on my hands and I could write as much (or as little) as I wanted, I find myself shamefully devoid of ideas.  My creative-self, which used to be inspired by the small part of the world in which I found myself, seems to be starving.  

I need to kick-start my writerbrain.

So, I started to think about my most prolific and creative periods.  When did I write the most?  When did I write my best?  When I was in school.  When I had assignments.  When I had creative writing classes.

This is where you come in.  

I need assignments.  Writing prompts.  Something to inspire, to stimulate, to rouse my seemingly-dormant writerbrain and make it work.  I need your help.  Desperately.  I'm begging. 


1.  Writing will officially begin on January 1, 2008.
2.  Prompts can be offered at any time starting right now.
3.  Prompts must be left as a comment on this journal.  
4.  Prompts can be a single word, a phrase, but must be no longer than one sentence (you've got to leave me room to be creative with my response).
5.  Beginning, January 1, 2008, I must post a response to a prompt of my choosing on a daily basis.
6.  If I run out of prompts, I still have to post something daily (in other words, I need to find my own prompts....and, just like anyone else, I will leave the prompts as a comment in this journal).

Oh, that's a really nice one...

Ever since I read House of Leaves I've had a fascination with appearing rooms. I also used to have lots of dreams about discovering a room I'd never noticed before.
