[M]y Favorite Time of the Week - [N]ow Introduction - [O]ur Writing Prompt

April 17, 2013
Okay I cheated a little bit. Three letters in one post is pretty impressive, though, right? Well, I had a horrid Monday. Not to mention that awful news on the East Coast. Oh well, 2013 is bound to perk up right? I hope so. I think we all deserve it. Anyways, I am a tad disappointed I didn't manage to get the writing prompt from last week, but maybe I'll try to get one out this week.

Outraged and Devastated

Leanne Sype suggested the prompt we put together this week be in honor of Boston. To be honest, I loved the idea, but I was not going to do it because everything I read made me cry and I didn't think I could do it. Until I saw this.

It corresponds with what I read a few days ago, a quote by Fred Rogers that says, "When I was a boy and would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.'"

So, I will put together a post with that in mind. I have found a lovely photo, though I believe it was taken before the bombings, it is open to many interpretations, not just for the marathon.

But first, some happier news. We have chosen the winner of our $25 Amazon Gift Card. Congratulations to

We are so thankful to each person who participates in our weekly prompt. Please keep coming back, or write for the first time! We welcome everyone and can't wait to read all the stories like the ones from last week.

Now, quickly into the prompt. We'll start with the rules.

1) Use the photo and the 5 words provided in your story.
2) Keep your word count 500 words or less.
3) You have until Tuesday to link up your post.4) Link up with your blog hostess (Nicole, Carrie, Tena or Leanne) when you’re done via the inLinkz linky below.
5) Have fun, don’t stress, let those creative juices flow.

The Words:






Sometimes I feel like I should take a screen shot of the creativity games site I use to generate those words, just to prove they were randomly selected by the internet.

But enough of that, it's time to get writing. Make sure to link up below so we can all share in your talent. :)


  1. About the Boston Marathon bombing, it will get better or worse as time goes on.

  2. What an inspiring set of pictures especially considering what happen a couple of days ago. I have wanted to get back into Writer Wednesday, but haven't had time. I stopped before when I was still living in China because with the time different, I never got my post in on time. I think I will start up again in May after A to Z.

  3. Just stopping by from a-z. It certainly is hard to watch such things happen without letting your emotions get the best of you. However, I too try to find the good in it. It's beautiful to see all the people coming together, being there for one another, helping and being supportive. It doesn't take away the sadness of the event but it makes it a little easier to swallow.


I love comments! Unfortunately, though, due to an increase in spam comments, I am going to be moderating comments for a while. But be rest assured, I'll be approving yours shortly. Thanks for stopping by!
