Writing Prompt: Singing The Blues

We all feel down from time to time. How do you combat the blues? What’s one tip you can share with others that always helps to lift your spirits?

But I must say that one of the first favourites that instantly come to mind is Matilda by Roald Dahl. To summarize, the title character, Matilda, was an inspiration…she was not your typical princess character, where the importance of how a person looks was placed higher than anything else.
