Day 20 – Would You Consider Yourself an Optimist or Realist?
I think everyone is a little bit of an optimist in life, regardless of how they think. We all want to see the positive outcomes in things, no matter how big or small. And sometimes we are a little bit pessimistic. Continue reading “30 Day Writing Challenge – Day 20”

Day 18 – Describe Your First Love and First Kiss (Of Significance)
This could be… interesting. Good prompt and we could probably say a lot on the matter.
I’ve definitely taught myself not to look back in anger. It is my past and we live on regardless of it.
Let’s disregard silly things we do as kids when boys were yucky and I was more interested in rolling down hills and climbing trees.
I was 14 and I was in love. Continue reading “30 Day Writing Challenge – Day 18”
Day 17 – Your Favourite Place to Go
This is kind of a hard one for me because for the past few years, what with life and work and university, I haven’t really had nearly as much free time as I would have liked. Now that I’m driving and am in a different working environment I have a little bit more freedom but, as it turns out, that hasn’t really helped too much. I still don’t get out nearly as much as I’d like to, I’m always just too tired. I’m thinking that I will keep this prompt more local rather than choose someplace across the world (far and unreasonable). So, my favourite place to go is actually anywhere in the Scottish Highlands and sometimes the Islands.

Day 16 – Do You Ever Feel…
Not all creative minds are troubled minds but many come from difficult times and are shaped by the forces that bend them. Those who face hard times often learn to find beauty and power in something that can be associated with something outside of the hardship, some learn to find beauty in the hardship.

Day 15 – Your Five Literary Heroes
Life is so noisy right now, but it’s going in the right direction. So, part of my catch-up here is the next prompt.
In no particular order, my five literary heroes;
- Jay Gatsby from The Great Gatsby – I love The Great Gatsby. It’s the only F. Scott Fitzgerald book I can read but I love it. The thing I really love about this book and the characters is how truly over the top it all is. Hysteria is a great word for it. It’s infectious. There are so many flaws in Gatsby, but ultimately he just wants the girl he fell in love with the idea of. From someone that came from nothing, he built himself an empire just the prove to Daisy that he could give her the life she wanted in return for her affections. However, despite the parties and the lush life, he is a very lonely man in a crowded room. He is very misunderstood but eventually, someone sees him for who he is. Nick sees Gatsby for the real man that lies beneath the facade, but by then it is too late. (My first ever tattoo, which was of course book related was from The Great Gatsby and I love it).

Day 13 – Something That You Are Currently Worrying About
I am naturally a stressed person. I get so unbelievably stressed over everything and sometimes it makes things incredibly difficult to deal with. My body has a really terrible way of dealing with the stress too, and it is often crippling.
