Write Now Prompt for March 31, 2015

Last day before Camp! Get those fingers moving with Write Now’s prompt.

Today's Author


At Today’s Author, our first goal is to get you (and us) to write. Write Now is our own collection of prompts to help you do that. With Write Now we’re not talking about writing, or trying to teach anyone how to write. Write Now is all about putting pen to paper.

Today’s Prompt:

Everyone assumed it was just another one of his crazy April Fool’s Day pranks.


How to play along with our Writing Prompts

  1. Write in any format or style you wish: short story, poem, script – whatever you like.
  2. Write for at least 5 minutes. There is no time limit – write for as long as you wish!
  3. Editing is not required, though we do recommend that you run a spell check at least.
  4. Post your work to your blog and include a link back here so your readers can find other writer’s work, too.
  5. Come back…

“As a horse when he has run, a dog when he has tracked the game, a bee when it has made the honey, so a man when he has done a good act, does not call out for others to come and see, but he goes on to another act, as a vine goes on to produce again the grapes in season.”

Translation: We’ll see you again next year!

Dance, dance, dance!


“…be content if the smallest thing goes on well, and consider such an event to be no small matter.”

You did it!  Whether you made our goal of 50,000 words or your goal of simply writing, you did it! Congratulations are due all around.  Go Celebrate!

…thanks for all the fish!

“Pass then through this little space of time conformably to nature, and end thy journey in context, just as an olive falls off when it is ripe, blessing nature who produced it, and thanking the tree on which it grew.”

It’s just a tiny blip…


“The art of life is more like the wrestler’s art than the dancer’s, in respect of this, that it should stand ready and firm to meet onsets which are sudden and unexpected.”

Be ready for site slow-downs, word counts that are less when verified than your text file says, and massive pushes for word wars to boost counts.  Like the shirt says, “Keep calm and write on.”  You can do it!  You are so close!

Finally! It clicks!

“That which has died falls not out of the universe. If it stays here, it also changes here, and is dissolved into its proper parts, which are elements of the universe and of thyself. And these too change, and they murmur not.”

And thus ends the dreaded Week Three, with silenced agony and shouts of joy! Celebrate synchronicity and the move toward the end.

Change will come


“…for the mind converts and changes every hindrance to its activity into an aid: and so that which is a hindrance is made a furtherance to an act; and that which is an obstacle on the road helps us on this road.”

No giving up!


“If thou art pained by any external thing, it is not this thing that disturbs thee, but thy own judgment about it. And it is in thy power to wipe our this judgment now. But if anything in thy own disposition gives thee pain, who hinders thee from correcting thy opinion? and even if thou art pained because thou art not doing some particular thing which seems to thee to be right, why dost thou not rather act than complain?”

Yeah, what he ^ said.  No complaining, just do it! Sit down and type!
