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. 

So, THE RULES:

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).

So, LET THE PROMPTING BEGIN!!!!

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.
