A Stellar Week

This past week has been stellar, like the stars from heaven are blessing us.

Mother nature provided some warmer temperatures reaching upwards into the fiftys. There are only a few remnants of snow remaining which will melt away since it is raining today.

Mid-week we both received our first dose of Moderna, the Covid-19 vaccine. It is such a great relief to know we are finally one step closer in this battle against coronavirus.

Hopefully before long, the Covid-19 numbers will begin to drop and we can take a long overdue vacation.

It's definitely something to look forward too!

Well enough about my week, let's get started with this week's word prompt.

Almost Anything Inspires Me

I love writing from prompts.

Almost anything inspires me to write. A song, a picture, a word, it really doesn't matter.

I can be driving down the road and see something off in the distance and that gets this old brain to thinking.

Problem is, I lose alot of my thoughts before I get the chance to jot them down.

So, with word prompts I have a chance to remember them because I am usually sitting down inside the house.

Word Prompt = Yesterday

Let's see if we can get motivated today from this single word prompt.

The word prompt is "Yesterday"

I will make certain to post this a few extra times this week. Giving everyone a chance to provide me a link to their poems or short stories.

I can't wait! I look foward to seeing your creations.

Thank you.

May your muse come up with something wonderful.

Have a great time writing.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on February 28, 2021:

"Yesterday" is a great word for a prompt, Brenda. I will pass it on to my muse.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 28, 2021:

Peggy,

Thank you.

Yes, I remember that song well.

It was akways one of my favorites.

Have a great day.

BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on February 28, 2021:

Pamela,

Thank you.

I'm glad you liked Ann's article.

She did an excellent job from one word.

I never know quite what I'm going to write about either, but I wish I could remember all those good thoughts I've lost.

Take care.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on February 28, 2021:

The word "yesterday" made me immediately remember the song by the Beatles. "Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away..." I am sure that many people know that song.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on February 28, 2021:

I think the word prompts are a great idea, even though I haven't used any so far. I very much liked Ann's article.

I never know what I am writing about next as something always comes up, often in unexpected ways. My prompts come from a great number of different places. Thanks for getting us all to think of prompts. Maybe I will attempt a poem soon.
