Welcome to the 2nd Edition of Writing-Prompt Carnival! We have still not mastered following the prompts for this, but hey, it’s a young Carnival!
The prompt was wrapped around this stanza of Christina Aguilera’s song, “Candyman.”
I met him out for dinner on a Friday night
He really got me working up an appetite
He had tattoos up and down his arm
There’s nothing more dangerous than a boy with charm
To start this off with a little bit of fun, my friend, Grrl Scientist, wasn’t exactly paying strict attention to the prompt but we can all relate to what happens to us when we get writer’s block!
GrrlScientist presents Publish or Perish: A Brief Review of Unsuccessful Attempts to Treat Writer’s Block : Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted) posted at Living the Scientific Life. Great visual!
Hats off to the one person who truly followed the prompt and shares a post with us about a little bit of real-life drama!
Reina Waters advises us to Watch Out for Charming Boys! You will find this posted at Real Women, Real Love. Reina says, “Watch out for charming boys. They won’t commit and they’ll steal your heart away. I believed this completely until I blew off a charming boy and discovered that even charmers can have a heart of gold.” I too have a bad habit of always jumping the gun on this kind of stuff, Reina!
The GrrlScientist told us about one of our biggest problems but Tiffany is going to help us fix it!
Tiffany Colter missed the prompt but tells us what Writing business owners need? posted over at Writing Career Coach, saying, “This article gives advice on what tools writing business owners need.” I’m going to go with it being tools that all writers need! Thank you, Tiffany!
Robert Terrell was responding to my love for anything about the moon and sent in morning still dreaming, a haiku posted over at Existential Pause Poetry, saying, “This one is not “directly” about the moon, but the moon is involved. I submitted this one because it seemed to be popular with some bloggers. I love moon haiku!” Thank you, Robert! There is something about the moon, and other celestial bodies, that seems to appeal to writers.
That concludes this 2nd Edition. Please submit your blog article to the next Edition of our Writing-Prompt Carnival using our carnival submission form.
The upcoming prompt will be to write a post based on the photo to the left, or submit a post that you are reminded of by this photo. It can be one you wrote some time back. As long as it fits, it’s all good!
