A Room With A View

If you could zoom through space in the speed of light, what place would you go to right now? On the dance floor dancing the rumba. The rumba is all about love…romantic love, lost love, new love, chubby love, forgotten love, erotic love, jealous love, teasing love, hurtful love. No matter what, it’s a form of passion, one which allows you to let your feelings go in a safe environment. For just a few minutes there, he’s mine and mine alone. On this floor alone, I trust him totally. We tell a story on the floor, one which we write …

Be Brief (A Very Short Story)

You stumble upon a random letter on the path. You read it. It affects you deeply, and you wish it could be returned to the person to which it’s addressed. Write a story about this encounter. Bonus twist: Approach this post in as few words as possible. “Tag! You’re It!” Balling the paper, I tossed and aimed for his head. Bullseye! He turns and glares. I stuck my tongue out at him and fled.

The Serial Killer: Losses

Write about a loss: something (or someone) that was part of your life, and isn’t any more. I’ve lost many things in life. Lost opportunities, lost love, lost time, lost books, lost friends, lost competitions. Some of these have less significance than others. But I do feel that something has died in me whenever I felt that I’ve lost something. Yet I hate that feeling of vulnerability, I hate that feeling of feeling exposed or admitting to losing. Sometimes I wish I had more support around me. Being brought up by numbers and results, I was taught to only trust …

Songs In Life

Write about the three most important songs in your life — what do they mean to you? At the moment, my level of Spanish is under total beginner, yet some of the most important songs in my life are Spanish. Perhaps it is time to learn or pick up the language. Song 1: Besame Mucho One of the purest songs I can ever feel. Maybe because I desire to be kissed with true passion. Yet sadly, the kisses I shared where I truly gave my emotions away have not resulted to anything truly substantial at the time of writing. Is …

A Room With A View

If you could zoom through space in the speed of light, what place would you go to right now? The spacious wooden floor, the booming sounds of music, the unconfined amounts of air that lets me expand my emotions. The place where I can feel at ease. The floor is my canvas, the music is my inspiration. The only things that limit me are my emotions and the way my body functions. When it’s quiet, I can only hear the sound of my heels scratching the floor, the swish of my lycra skirt, the slide of the suede against the …

Mind Reader

Who’s the last person you saw before reading this prompt? Whether it’s a family member, a coworker, or a total stranger, write a post about what that person is thinking right now. At the time of stumbling upon this prompt (last week) was when I was checking my email and saw this entry by The Daily Post. There and then, I was about to dinner with my dance partner after a rather hazy lesson. During the course of our meal, with our dance teacher, we were discussing plans for the next six months. For that specific moment, I would say that …

Ring of Fire

Do you love hot and spicy foods or do you avoid them for fear of what tomorrow might bring? Bring it on! I challenge the spice! The best ones (in no particular order) are prevalent in the following dishes/cuisines: – Thai: Green curries. Slightly acidic and a little fishy, best served with a few shrimps, chicken and a loaf excellent baguette. – Singaporean: Laksa Lemak. Rich in coconut broth and also fish based, always a pleasure to slurp noisily (company dependent) with the appropriate noodles and shrimps swimming in the soup. – Indian: Cari Masala/Curry Masala (high preference for Mauritian …

Writing Prompt: Because the Night

Are you a night owl or are you the early bird? What’s your most productive time of day? When do you do your best work? My hours of alertness actually start at around 17:00, precisely the time when one has just finished their afternoon tea. There is a sense of seduction that the night has to offer: the moments of peace when all has gone to bed, the solitude, the hidden creatures that beckon my mind. 1 o’clock: Only my wine and Laura Fygi for company. The start of a new creative adventure over candlelight. 2 o’clock: New possibilities happen. …

Saturday Night

S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y NIGHT! What’s your favorite way to spend Saturday night? Saturday night, one of the best nights of the week to allow extravagant pleasures. Personally, there are three different Saturday night spending variations that deserve attention: 1. Version Dance Party Partying: the pinnacle to mingling and happy faces in a group setting. For me, it will be going to a fantastic venue that hosts many lovely dancers and a DJ who will get your heart pumping. I could get reacquainted with old friends and/or make some new ones with whom I could get some after-party dessert after. Maybe at 4am. …
