The Prompt: Ready, Set, Done—Our free-write is back by popular demand: today, write about anything — but you must write for exactly ten minutes, no more, no less.


If we knew what to write about, we’d do so every day;
but instead we come here hoping that you’ll tell us what to say.
Already you have proven twice your prompt site isn’t prompt.
And once again upon our trust you mindfully have stompt
by turning us away to find our topics on our own.
So once again, dear WordPress, all our trust in you has flown.
We do not go to clothes stores to buy dresses not yet sewn,
nor come here to this prompt site to be told to pick our own!

    Yes, but we can come up with prompts on our own on our own! Prompt to me denotes two things: one, a hint at what to write, two, on time. Lately, neither has been the case! Ha.

      I know. Some WordPress prompter went out partying last night instead of doing his/her homework. Ah well. Not as though I haven’t done the same occasionally in my life, but doesn’t seem as though it would be that hard to come up with a prompt—even a bad one! Write about peas!

    But of course they just handed us a freedom we always had. At any given point, we can figure out what we want to write about ourselves and write about it. I think someone is asleep at the wheel. Two days where the link wasn’t established till evening. Two other days when we were told to think up our own prompt! I’m asking for my money back!! Ha.
