Well… I’m back.
*checks notifications and reader*
Wow. You all have been busy, haven’t you?
Anyway, the random writing snippets won the poll I put up, so they’ll be first in the post lineup.
So, these are from my new writing prompt book, UnJournaling (which is quite awesome). I did about one a day throughout the week, so I get to choose the best ones for you guys!
Prompt 92: Invent some old-wives’ tale cures for hiccups, leg cramps, mosquito bites and warts.
Cure for hiccups:
Find a wild red clover, pull out exactly seven blossom sections and suck out the nectar before eating the blossoms themselves.
Why it works:
Partially the healing properties of pure, wild nectar, and partially the classic hiccups cure of fear. Bees are pretty scary and, if you think about it, you’re taking their food. So watch your back while carrying out this cure.
Cure for leg cramps:
Pet your dog while eating a freshly baked cinnamon roll. (A friend’s dog will do if you don’t have a dog.) (Same for the cinnamon roll.)
Why it works:
Leg cramps are caused by tenseness. Both dogs and cinnamon rolls are extremely relaxing things, and therefore will relax your muscles and stop the cramps.
Cure for mosquito bites:
Forgive someone you’ve been mad at.
Why it works:
Forgiveness is the strongest anti-venom known to man. This cure harnesses it quite well.
Cure for warts:
Have your wart licked by an Irish Wolfhound.
Why it works:
Frogs cause warts.
Frogs = Small and slimy
Irish wolfhounds = Big and furry
Irish wolfhounds are the antidote to warts.
Prompt 18: Here’s what the artist called her painting: “Polar bear eating vanilla ice cream in a blizzard.” To viewers, it looked like a plain white piece of canvas. How might the artist describe other colors of canvas?
A cardinal drowning in tomato juice at sunset.
A flaming tangerine against a backdrop of cheese sauce.
A goldfinch with a buttercup in its beak flying into the sun.
Mossy cucumbers lost in a forest.
A berry JellyBelly thrown into the sky.
The TARDIS lost at sea.
An octopus hiding eggplants in a pool of grape juice at twilight.
Prompt 28: Write
five original and obvious warnings for anything you choose
I went with fictional objects on this one…. and went way past the suggested “five”.
But, hey. It was fun! 😛
On the One Ring (Lord of the Rings):
Excessive use may lead to obsession, voice raspiness and hair loss.
On Mjolnir (Thor and Avengers):
May cause lowering of self-esteem due to feelings of unworthiness.
On the HMS Renown (A&E’s Horatio Hornblower):
Contains mentally unstable captain. Unreasonable punishments, paranoia and second-guessing may ensue.
On the TARDIS (Doctor Who):
Contains unpredictable Time Lord. Dangerous situations may ensue upon entry.
On pixie dust (Peter Pan):
May temporarily counteract the effects of gravity.
The Dragon Manual (How to Train Your Dragon):
Material contained may be unsuitable for bedtime reading. Authors take no responsibility for resulting nightmares.
On the Piece of Resistance (The Lego Movie):
May permanently attach to back upon contact. War/uprising may also ensue.
On Holy Grail (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade):
Removal from Petra may result in bodily harm.
On any gadget from Mission: Impossible:
Will likely malfunction at the worst moment possible. Best course of action is to pretend that they hate you. (They probably do.)
Hope you enjoyed all those! Feel free to comment if you have more cures, masterpieces or warnings to add. 😉
So, based on the poll, it looks like the outlook from here is:
Pictures (hopefully… the picnic I was planning on prop-shooting at got canceled. 😥 But we might go try again today.)
A Big Sis/Writer post (I’m deciding between 2, so please vote below!)
Fanfiction (CAPTAIN AMERICA CROSSOVER.*slaps hand over mouth*)
Giver Series Review
Matzah Toffee Recipe
Well, it’s good to be back. 🙂
As always, comment below!
(Tentative P.S.: Details aren’t exactly past family at this moment, but we’re going through some stuff that’s really hard for me right now. Don’t worry. The blog will continue as normal [it cheers me up to, y’know] but I’d really appreciate any prayers. They’re very needed. Thanks. <3)
