I NEED SHORT STORY PROMPT IDEAS PLEAAAASEEEE // trying to do nanowrimo + randomest comment on my blog ever


so tbh I really miss writing. like a lot. it's become this thing where I get an idea...but don't have time to do anything with it. at work the other day, I legit had to grab a scrap piece of paper and pen...then i rapidly jammed a poem out. I stuffed the piece of paper in my back pocket. I'm sick of jamming my ideas in my back pocket. 

but then, I hit that wall of HAHAHAHA YOU THINK YOU GOT TIME TO WRITE 50K IN NOVEMBER?? 

and then I'm like DUDE YEAH WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE TO TELL ME I CAN'T
and well, tbh, even if I think I can -- and even if I really DID do it I think I'd regret it in the end. bc I'm not sure if I'm willing to spend that much time on a project just yet. I feel like I've been working all summer (NOT COMPLAINING) and I'm ready for winter hibernation. just not ready for the "stress" of writing. I kinda want to try enjoying the holiday season this year

P.S SOMETHING IS WRONG MY LITTLE SISTER IS ALREADY LISTENING TO CHRISTMAS MUSIC IS THIS OK? 




and now that I'm done rambling, I'd just like to ask for some help -- bc I WANNA WRITE still. and brrrrrooo I llloooovvee *squeals* writing short stories. They're more like lengthed poems cuz they only are about 2k long BUT HEHE THEY ARE ABOUT AS NUTTY AS ME like ;


  • "the sneeze heard around the world" was the title of one short story (don't ask)
  • or this snippet from my weirdest of all 

it took a second for my laptop to process the CD, but then, I heard it. It was my voice. MY VOICE. I think it took me a second to realize that the CD was even playing.  “Hello,” I said or? “It’s time you knew the truth...I’m the real you.” Quickly, I slapped my hand down and paused the CD from going further.

I was inspired for a few of those from short story prompts I saw on pinterest........ SO HERE IS WHERE YOU COME IN. I'd love to write 1 short story a week during NaNoWriMo -- just to stretch my writing skills, to enjoy some creativity and grow my short story collection. I'd loooove it if you guys shot me a few story prompts!! I don't care if you made them up, or if you "stole" it off pinterest! Just please keep them clean and not gory thx 

annnnnnd maybe if I'm feeling super crazy I'll share them with ya if you want? *cringes forevermore*

btw yesterday I got the most randomest (NEW WORD FOLKS RUN WITH IT)  comment I've ever gotten on my poetry blog ever. not sure how to respond? It's really sweet -- I just don't know who wrote it? So, Anonymous, I'm glad you wanted to share that with me!



so basically this is my plea. thank you for listening. today I slept in until noon and then we had a campfire this evening with s'mores and sparklers. life's pretty. eh?

A SHORT STORY PROMPT PLEASE ????
MOST RANDOMEST COMMENT YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED ??? 

I DON'T HAVE WISDOM TEETH??!?!??!??! // photoshoot + new fall photo aka NEW PROFILE PICTURES LOL


I went to the dentist this week. 

Now, I've known these people since I was 5 years old. I remember the first time I sat in the sea green chair on my dad's lap I WAS SUCH A LITTLE TYKE. (I'm also such a strange person who remembers 1st's) IDK. It's fun. The hygienists and I have this joking sort of relationship. I goof off - they laugh. The dentist calls me "hula." Don't ask.  


dentist :  "You have a cavity."
me :  " well I'm 18. if I don't want to have it filled I don't have to do it right???????"
me mentally : HEHEHE LETS SEE WHAT HE SAYS NOW LOL
dentist : ..........
dentist : I think you know better than that. if you want to have a large gaping hole in your front teeth (etc etc etc)
me : *cracks up* just teasing.  

also then I was told I was going to have my wisdom teeth x-ray. well we've had this thing where I thought I had those hunk wisdom and they didn't. THIS WAS LIKE THE BIG DAY. so I went into that slightly star wars-y thing and held on tight and next thing I knew she was like ;

"nope. You don't have wisdom teeth." 


AND THEN EVERYONE PROCEEDS TO TELL ME THAT THEY KNEW I HAD A LACK OF WISDOM IN MY LIFE. everyone. *rolls eyes* 

so yeah. Julia doesn't have wisdom teeth. huh. who woulda thought. 

also bc I do have one cavity the hygienist was asking me if I drink a lot of sugary drinks and I was like "sorta. I drink lemonade at work" BC I COULDN'T DRINK BOILING WATER ALL SUMMER. dude water tastes terrible when its 90 degrees out. like that sounds terrible but... blah. 

CAN YOU BELIEVE THE PHOTOS THAT SARAH TOOK OF ME THIS FALL?!?!? dude. be totally jealous that she is my sister and not yours *grins*  it also finally looks like autumn. I adore the warm colors. it's like it comes back every year -- i love that. 

btw today I made apple pie. and we put vanilla ice cream on it. ITS BEEN A GOOD TUESDAY
