Writing Prompt #117 NoEnd House Part 2″

Yves

For the original prompt description click here

The above image is of a compact mirror. I am also giving you a word that you need to include in the piece “Cornflower”. Use these two elements in the description of your next room. It isn’t required that you write a story all forms of expression are welcome just figure out some way to include the motifs even if in an abstract sense (for example a photographer might use the color cornflower in the image and include mirror in the title or something along those lines). It is not necessary to include the image in your post though you are welcome to do so. From here on out the pictures are just objects and the background is irrelevant (though you can include it if you want).

When you’re done, TAG the post MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie, and add your link to the Link Button. And don’t forget to link to this post or copy your post’s URL into the comments. We can read your post sooner that way.

  1. Not sure I have written according to your wishes Yves but my muse took over and so there is my effort for today.
    Hope your weekend is going well for you.

  2. Initially, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to do a “series prompt”–but yesterday I totally got into it and wrote both the first and 2nd parts–WAY FUN, thanks Yves! You Rock Always!

      • Thank you very much, more than I can say…I’m up to date on Parts 1 and 2, and even braved opening the comments. I’m grateful for the handful of blog poets who keep encouraging me not to give up–and who tolerate my manic changes of blogs/names. Honestly, I’m not trying to drive you all crazy on purpose!

      • No it’s okay I know how hard it is to put yourself out there and when I first started blogging my comment section was so depressing and I barely got any traffic. I almost gave up many times and took a year plus blogging break when I came back I had a totally different attitude and a new philosophy on writing. I have met some truly amazing writers/people through blogging (you included) and my own writing has improved as has my discipline. I had thought when I came back from the break, since most of my followers were gone, and I didn’t like all my early work that I should start clean with a new blog but I didn’t because I liked my blog name haha

      • Thanks for sharing a bit about your blog journey/experience. I’m always surprised to discover within a week or so, that people show up to each new blog I start. I’m being more cautious now–only alerting the folks I feel safe with, that I’m still “here”. It seemed that a lot of “regular” readers wanted me to stay in a box, were not amenable to “hear” me write something different (especially if it wasn’t “positive”). So I guess when you mention “new attitude/philosophy on writing”–I have to stand firm in writing for myself, not caving to reader “needs”. I used to be a blog “cheerleader”–but I just can’t do it right now.

        And your blog name is GREAT! Fortunately, I never have difficulty coming up with a new one I like…hah!

      • Always write for yourself that is important and always be yourself because then you will be surrounded by genuine people whom you can be real with and who will appreciate the depth of your work. I feel so honored that you have decided to share your wonderful poems with me and my group =)

      • Ohhh, Bless you for that–I am honored to be among such gifted poets. I used to joke that “blogging keeps me off the streets”–but it’s surely no joke that it helps to keep me moving through each day on earth. Thanks so much, always.

    • I find it hard to talk about ordinary things. I had a very traumatic childhood so picking out normal things is hard I just don’t really know what is normal appropriate and what isn’t it

      • I’m with you–on the traumatic childhood, and what is normal and appropriate. The boundaries in my house–of privacy, respect etc–only applied to the parents, as children had no “rights”.

      • Oh My. We had plenty of depression and alcoholism and molestation–and mom may have been bi-polar, though it could have just been related to drinking… It’s amazing we survive, isn’t it. And wow-amazing that we can write like we do!!

      • That all sounds familiar as well my dad is a pedophile/child-molester, wife-beater, alcoholic, and felon. It is amazing we survived truly. Depression is also a major issue in my family and I hate to say it but I have a number of psychopaths in my family dad included (one of his brothers and his father also) and the other side too had some as well. Writing is cathartic and essential to my sanity, however, limited it is

      • My heart goes out to you, dear friend. It must be part of the abused “identity” that I have the twisted idea it’s okay that it happened in my life–but it distresses me no end that it happened to you…and others. What happens to the compassion for ourselves, I wonder–oh that’s right, I don’t think I deserve any. At the risk of being too personal, God told me last week that I “have a right to live”–it was startling, because I realized that I’d never felt I deserved/had that right in 62 yrs. Good grief–it’s nice to be among the broken and way talented writers with huge hearts–wishing you an excellent day, filled with love ~ Valida 🙂

      • I know what you mean for others my heart aches but as for myself I can’t seem to let go of the guilt, the feeling that I in someway asked for or deserved what happened or that I perhaps dramatized or imagined it Trauma fills one with such a vicious self-hate. You absolutely do deserve to live and I am glad to know the message was received. You are extremely talented and thank you so much for your support

      • Bless your heart, you’re always in my prayers–seriously, every night! Yes, I relate to all you say–that I either deserved the abuse and hatred, or that I’ve dramatized a wild imagination. Well, it’s easy to know where the last part comes from–how many times have I heard, “Oh you’re SO DRAMATIC”–one more sin/crime added to my list. Vicious self-hate, yes–and it’s SO dangerous. I am happy to “know” you; and every word I say to you–whether commiseration, or praise for your glorious and powerful poetry, is 100% sincere. Remember that, take it in–down deep!

      • It’s a “good thing”, a gift, to have genuine connection–even if it’s from a distance, and somewhat anonymous. Celebrating that today–AND I have a poem coming up soon, which I’ve dedicated to all of “us”…
