    11) This Is Your Life

    AWW WP WRITING PROMPTS

    IT’S MY LIFE and, provided it was penned by a decent author, it would probably make for a rather fascinating read. Now, obviously, I don’t know what my future holds, but even if I were to die tomorrow there’s been enough drama, horror, action, romance, fantasy and mystery in my…

    10) I Scream

    AWW WP WRITING PROMPTS

    ICE CREAM FLAVOURS… Funnily enough, when it comes to ice cream I am very much a vanilla kinda girl. And the funny part of that whole equations is that I am so not vanilla and most certainly not a girl. Now, don’t get me wrong. Ice cream is ice cream…

    9) 1984

    AWW WP WRITING PROMPTS

    MY GREATEST fear… Now, isn’t that an interesting question to be faced with right now? If I were to be locked into a room with my greatest fear there are only two possible scenarios: 1) The room is full of snakes, spiders and other creepy crawlies. In which case I’m…

    8) Teacher’s Pet

    AWW WP WRITING PROMPTS

    THE TEACHER that had the most impact on my life? Hmm… I feel like I need to preface my answer to that question by saying I’ve had quite a few really good teachers in my life. Some of them were my teachers, some of them were my colleagues and some…

    7) Helpless

    AWW WP WRITING PROMPTS

    I’VE FELT pretty helpless ever since this blasted pandemic started. It has put my whole life on hold and cut me off from my family and friends. I realised quickly that I would need strategies in place to stop me from falling into the big, black hole of depression. I’ve…

    6) My Favourite

    AWW WP WRITING PROMPTS

    JONAH, YOU are my favourite person in the whole wide world! I can’t believe it’s been two years since we last cuddled up and told each other secrets. Or played games and laughed at how bad I was at playing LEGO The Hobbit.  When you left to go on an adventure…

    5) Call Me Ishmael

    AWW WP WRITING PROMPTS

    DEATH ARRIVED by brewery truck/lorry (döden kom med ölbil). That’s the opening sentence in The Democratic Terrorist (Den demokratiske terroristen), Swedish author Jan Guillou’s second book in the series about secret agent Carl Hamilton. Code name Coq Rogue. It was adapted into a film in 1993, with the brilliant Stellan Skarsgård…

    4) My Favourite Quote

    AWW WP WRITING PROMPTS

    MY FAVOURITE quote, that has become my motto in life, is: “Pain is temporary – losing is forever.” Pretty sure it’s from a ghastly film with snakes on a plane, but that’s not why it resonates with me. Living with chronic pain, I came so close to giving up when…

    3) The Bucket List

    AWW WP WRITING PROMPTS

    THE 11th ITEM on my bucket list is actually something fitting for this blog. I want to get a rejection letter from a known publisher. Ideally, I’d like to get many, as that would mean I had sent my manuscripts to many different publishers. But truth be told, I’m not…

    2, New Year’s Resolutions

    AWW WP WRITING PROMPTS

    THE ANSWER IS YES.  New Year’s Resolutions are my thing. I’ve been writing mine in the (very) early morning hours on the first day of the year for as long as I can remember. And with one exception, I have kept them all. There have been years where, for whatever…
