I love Instagram. Sometimes it’s a giant dumpster fire that makes me want to throw my phone away, but most of the time, it’s full of gorgeous photos and cool personalities and a bit of escape from reality.
Along with fashion or makeup bloggers, Christian pages, bands, etc., I follow quite a few “word” accounts, @wordporm and @wordables to name a couple of them. These profiles are just a series of quotes or sayings that are sometimes inspiring, sometimes funny, and usually thought-provoking. I love these posts and often share them to my story.
What I don’t do, however, is write about them. I’ve decided that this is a travesty because they almost ALWAYS make me ponder and wax philosophical, but I never really use that thought process as a writing prompt. I intend to change that.
So, for the foreseeable future, you will see a “Writing Prompt Wednesday” blog every week.
I will choose a quote that reached me, let you know the account from whence it came, and then use it as inspiration for a new blog post. I’ll do my best to post not only things with which I agree or that are all super positive and energizing, but also some things with which I may not agree, or that may resonate on a less-than-positive level with some folks. The point is to make people think a little, and hopefully, even discuss (civilly.)
Stick around, this should be fun!
