Day Nine: Last Summer…

Today’s Prompt: A man and a woman walk through the park together, holding hands.

Today’s twist: write the scene from three different points of view


The Man

She insisted that we take a walk in the park to calm my nerves. As if my nerves could turn calm after what we did last summer. I think that it’s her nerves, she wants to calm more, in this walk, than she wants to calm me. I still can remember the lady’s cry of pain when our car rammed into her. Her vivid grey eyes that grew vacant and closed at the hospital. The pain in the tears of her son who had come all the way from half-way around the globe. He hadn’t blamed or accused us – but the innocent faces of her grandkids as they clung onto her boy, their father, was accusation enough for me.

Talk of the devil.

Day Eight: The Familiar Stranger

Today’s Prompt: Go to a local café, park, or public place and write a piece inspired by something you see.

Today’s twist: write an adverb-free post.


The Familiar Stranger

I awoke late, thanks to the pressures on my blog
And raced to the bus stop – placing a jog.

Once inside, I get a ticket to my destination,
I settled down for my journey to my educational institution.

I spotted an old couple sitting side-by-side
Something about their faces made me forget the ride.

Day Seven: Nothing Left. Go Right. Nothing Right. Go Left.

Today’s Prompt: Write a post based on the contrast between two things — whether people, objects, emotions, places, or something else.

Today’s twist: write your post in the form of a dialogue.


What the Right said to the Left

Day Six: Characters…

Today’s Prompt: Who’s the most interesting person (or people) you’ve met this year?

Today’s twist: Turn your post into a character study.


This year I did meet a lot of people. Each one has proven to be quite as interesting as the previous one. Somehow, each person has taught me something new and imbibed me with some lessons. Lessons that came not just from the positive experiences, but from the negative ones as well.

Day Five: Welcoming Death As An Old Friend

Today’s Prompt: You stumble upon a random letter on the path.

Today’s twist: Approach this post in as few words as possible.

Part 2: Taken For  A Ride

Part 3: The End


A disclaimer: This is a purely fictional post. Partly inspired from Hamlet, though. Any other similarity with characters living, dead or created would simply be co-incidental.
Point Included Later: And this is the first part of the series. The links to the next parts can be found below.


Thoughts of suicide have been haunting me for quite some time. Actually, I’ve been bringing those thoughts inside my head. Ever since I was framed for fraudulent practice in my institution. I have always been a high flier. But jealousy probably made her accuse me and get me debarred from the university.

Day Four: Lost in Thought (Part 1/3)

Today’s Prompt: Write about a loss: something (or someone) that was part of your life, and isn’t any more.

Today’s twist: Make today’s post the first in a three-post series.


In No Sense of Innocence

I seriously don’t feel like writing now, but I’m going to get this done.
Anytime at all, for me, writing and creating will always be fun.

I wanna write about the loss of innocence
A feeling that we behave without an inner sense.

Day Three: Musical Muses

Today’s Prompt: Write about the three most important songs in your life — what do they mean to you?

Today’s twist: You’ll commit to a writing practice.


Yet another free writing theme. Well, that is the best there is. Well, the post is to be about music. It has to be done, here’s another Harry Potter quote:

“Ah, music,” he said, wiping his eyes. “A magic beyond all we do here!”

– Albus Dumbledore

Day Two: Room of Requirement

Today’s Prompt: If you could zoom through space in the speed of light, what place would you go to right now?

Today’s twist: organize your post around the description of a setting.


I first think around of places I’ve already been to, which isn’t a lot. Apart from my home, hanging out with my friends in their homes there aren’t many places with specific memories attached. There’s school and college, which becomes a case of familiarity breeding contempt. Then there are places to which I’m bound by duty, such as banks and temples, and places like hospitals which I visit for emergencies. I have memories for each of these places, and in retrospect, they are the good-old-days.

The words of the prompt made me think of Superman, someone capable of just floating around in the upper atmosphere and maybe zooming around through space at the speed of light. The concept of nowhere as an answer to this prompt sounds cool. But then I think of Interstellar and Dr. Hugh Mann who abandoned the planet he was born on, the one he landed on, and the people who were there on both.

Day One: Free Flow

Prompt: To get started, let’s loosen up. Let’s unlock the mind. Today, take twenty minutes to free write. And don’t think about what you’ll write. Just write.

Twist: And for your first twist? Publish this stream-of-consciousness post on your blog.


The first thought in this process of writing out a stream of consciousness is that,“This is foolish”. For all I know, I’m going to end up publishing a rant-made-in-20-minutes-or-less. To put thoughts in order to be coherent for a post on my blog I’d probably need some help. I’ve so many thoughts running around, I’d gladly get hold of a Pensieve from Dumbledore.

One simply siphons the excess thoughts from one’s mind, pours them into the basin, and examines them at one’s leisure.

— Albus Dumbledore
