WEEKEND WRITING PROMPT – LOLLYGAG

Published January 4, 2020 by rochellewisoff

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the Sammi’s Comment Section.

MY SHINING PALACE BUILT ON SAND

“My candle burns at both ends,” wrote the poet.

I’ll permit neither frustration nor self-doubt to devour me when my compositions seem to go unnoticed. I’ll neither lollygag nor let my keyboard collect dust. No! I’ll last the night and live to write another day. Whether you see it or not, foes or friends, my candle gives a lovely light.

Edna St. Vincent Millay

* Hint Hint: If you’d care to read something longer please visit my latest story entitled “1942.”

  • Your candle does indeed burn at both ends. And your keyboard does not collect dust as I can truly testify. Carry on my keyboard queen. There is more stuff to write, draw, paint and candles to burn. I guarantee you are being seen. And your candle burns bright. Great job.

  • Dear Rochelle,

    Fear not, dear one! You are read. Sometimes you know it not, but it is so. And, regardless, write for yourself and think not of who may or may not read. Keep the candles burning, the light is beautiful and will attract…
    I truly believe it.

    Shalom and lotsa love,

    Dale
