WRITING PROMPT
Most Important Thing

“Money isn’t the most important thing in the world. Your time is.”

Parents, teachers, and mentors all around the world have spoken these words to us, in one form or another, throughout our lives.

Most of us come to realize at some point that money is a means, not an end, and that our time is limited, and that the more we have of it, the more opportunities there are for us to experience joy and fulfillment.

But is that the whole story? Is time really what adds more to life?

Share your thoughts regarding the subject. Write an open letter and use the tag “perspective”.

WRITING PROMPT
Can Words Kill?

The way others talk to us profoundly influences our emotional states, our subsequent thoughts, and many of our behavioral choices.  Words can de-escalate a flight-fight response, enabling us to successfully navigate challenges rather than wildly striking out or fleeing. On the other hand, unkind or abusive words can literally be used as weapons.

They say the tongue has no bones but it's strong enough to break a heart. Do you believe in this statement? Can words kill people? Share with us your thoughts regarding the subject.

Tag your open letter "words".

I listen to music.

Writers may be disreputable, incorrigible, early to decay
or late to bloom but
they dare to go it alone.

WRITING CHALLENGE
Timed Prompt

Most of us are familiar with writing prompts where a bunch of words, a theme, a picture, etc, are used to help get creativity jump started when faced with a blank piece of paper. And you usually have quite some time to ponder, brainstorm or even research after initial ideas are written on paper. But what do you think about imposing short time limits when responding to a prompt - 60 minutes, 20 minutes, or even 5 minutes? Want to give it a try?

I want you to take a look at the illustration below. You have 30 minutes to scribble something down. It might be a poem, a short story, it's entirely up to you. I hope this will be a fun and productive exercise for eve...
