Sunday Writing Prompt, May 9/2021 – Beautiful Mistake

Hello, friends 🙂

Welcome back to, Sunday Writing Prompt!

The prompt I chose for this week resonates with me for many reasons, as I’m sure it does for others. But, even if it doesn’t, hopefully it gets your creative wheels turning.

I find the term, Beautiful Mistake very intriguing in its complexity.

Did you choose the wrong partner, but developed boundaries and self-confidence that prepared you for the right one?

Did you accidently knock your coffee over your written manuscript, but when you re-wrote, it turned out even better?

Did you take a job you ended up hating, but made a new best friend?

Today’s Sunday Writing Prompt: Beautiful Mistake

The Rules:

  • The style is completely open; poetry, prose, even a single sentence…Go where the prompt takes YOU!
  • Keep your submission to 500 words or less.
  • Post it on your page, and TAG it Sunday Writing PromptSWPMLMMMindlovemisery’s MenagerieAnd be sure to leave a link in the comment section below.
  • Feel free to use my photo for inspiration, or as your own cover image.
  • Please have your submissions in by the END OF EACH FRIDAY (Pacific Standard Time). Every Saturday, I will post a “standout” piece in a post entitled, SATURDAY SPOTLIGHT. Bear in mind, it will be based on my personal opinion. If you are not chosen, that does NOT mean your piece was not superb.
  • Be creative and HAVE FUN!

Please, take a moment and visit last week’s selection for the Saturday Spotlight series, Susan St.Pierre, https://sillyfrogsusan.com/2021/04/30/mlmm-prompt-5-2-21-celestial-theme-wasnt-done/

    Is there a “Mr. Llnky” page or do we just post links to our stories here in the comments?

      Stephanie! You never cease to amaze me. What a wonderful story told with so few words. Excellent submission! And absolutely feel free to submit another, and another, and another! No limits 🙂

        Thank you so very much 🙏🏻
        I like this prompt also because it forces me to keep it short; that helps because I can be so verbose sometimes 😜.

        That’s great, Stephanie! You’re doing a very good job of getting your story told within my constraints. You are talented, and I look fondly forward to your future writings 🙂

      Great one, Susan! Weaving Covid into the prompt wasn’t something I had considered, and you did it wonderfully.

        I appreciate your pleasure. It wasn’t the ‘happily ever after’ that your prompt expected and a sensitive topic. Provoking emotions and thoughts is a writer’s purpose, IMHO. 😀

        100%! I see prompts as “suggestions” myself 🙂

      My partner has made many “mistakes” in the kitchen, and some turned out SO much better and ultimately changed the way he cooks those dishes 🙂 Thanks for participating!

      What a view! Lush, clean, worth the “difficult” venture. Where is this?
