Daily Prompt: This is Your Life

  • I found the WordPress Blog today – I have been looking everywhere to learn how to categorise my posts. Still it was a happy find, perfect for me to add more word count and hopefully something you can respond to.

  • Daily Prompt: This Is Your Life

    by michelle w. on January 11, 2013

    If you could read a book containing all that has happened and will ever happen in your life, would you? If you choose to read it, you must read it cover to cover.


    I was so tempted until I got to the end of the sentence! For me, this prompt is easily answered – NO, no I wouldn’t. I won’t even have Tarot Cards read because I don’t want to know the future. I’m sure if it wasn’t good we might think we would do our best to change that. Would you really have the strength? I think I’d get messed up mentally if I knew even what next week involved. I wouldn’t have believed in last week had I been told but because I wanted it – I like to think I made part of it happen. I believe in destiny, I have also been stuck for years on one spot because I took no action.

    In 2 weeks I have started a blog, submitted writing, blown the dust off my manuscript and bought my 2nd property! If I had read that I would have been convinced it was a work of fiction!

    I’d love to read the early years, the parts I cannot recall, the patchy memories pieced together over sepia photographs of childhood. I remember hating having no sister and now thinking back it felt great to have two brothers. Unsettled though youth was, it was safe, the next couple of decades have been a challenge – if I was reading the book I’d need plenty of Kleenex for the 1st part.

    I like reading other people’s lives, but I think I’m best off just living mine!


    How about you?

    • Exceedingly grateful for the technical help! When I am back at the desk I will have another look, I probably should have waited until the morning though, @ 5a.m I’m not sure what I just did. Bleary eyed writer thanks you again!
