Something You look Forward To

By Damien Knight

My writing prompt today is “What do you look forward to every week?” The thing I look forward to is my meetings with Dr. Wulff. He is my professor in mineralogy. He is a quality professor and I feel I have improved so much taking his class. I have made a lot of progress in my studies because of these meetings. I thought I would only be progressing in Mineralogy but I have found that it has helped my study habits entirely.

I wish I paid more attention when…

By Damien Knapp

My writing prompt today is what I wish I paid more attention to. I wish I paid more attention when I was in High-school. I wish I focused more in Algebra classes. If I had done this I might have passed college algebra first time around.

Risks or Safety?

By Damien Knight

Today’s prompt asks, do you prefer to take risks or have a safety net? I am a risk taker. I love adventure and consider myself to be an adrenaline junkie. I thrive on high emotions. So while I am obsessed with schedule and timelines, I hate planning trips. It’s so much more fun being spontaneous!

What I Got In Trouble for as a Kid

By Damien Knight

My 300 Writing prompts is what I got int trouble for most. I got in trouble for most as a kid was not paying attention. I got in fights occasionally and got in trouble for other things but was yelled at most for my lack of focus. Whether it was forgetting my umbrella during a down pour or not closing a door in a timely manner, I got scolded. I fear I yell too much at my own children for similar such mole hills.

A Thing I Lied to Myself About

By Damien Knight

Today’s 300 writing prompts is what did you lie to yourself about and why? I didn’t even have to think about that, Sailor Mars, I lied to myself about her. I told myself I was happy with my ex girlfriend. I dated her 2-3 years saying I was happy even though I was miserable. I insisted we would work out, she was my soul mate.

It’s hard admitting you were wrong. For me especially because she was my first true love. I met her when I was 10 years old. Ending it was hard, I loved her once you know. I almost convinced myself to stay.

Why did I do it? I lied to myself out of love, loneliness, and the misguided belief she was mine. I thought she loved me, needed me. I almost went back. She does not love me, I realise that now. I just need to move on.

Hear my voice
Look at the sea
Rise beneath me
It is I who keeps
Birds in flight
Swift at night
Bats on wing
Hear me sing
Whistle in trees
Look at fall leaves
Is it not I
Drifts them gentle
Alas I do not lie
I am the summer breeze
I am the wisp of winter
The cold breath
as you pull tight
Your coat with all might
I caress the spring bud
I push the sea
I am wind

Diary Entry Writing Prompt 10 Years Later

Oct 7 2028

Dear Journal,

I’ve reached 42 and it’s October I love October. I admit I did not know if I’d make it this far. Finally got top surgery and my B.S. in Geology. Masters degree was hard earned too.

I will be working on my doctrates soon. I took a break because I was in school my kids entire lives. My son is turning 23 soon. My daughter is 19. I can start my studies along side them, I am still young after all.
