He had never been good at striking a bargain
His mother should have known
Better than to send him to market
Never know what you’re going to get

Worried, he told himself these things,
Not wanting to be a disappointment
He had coins in his bag she said should be enough
But no candy or fluff

He wasn’t smart, he told himself, a lie
But he was strong, willing to learn and try

At the markets’ edge he met a man
Who said, catch the pig, and if you can,
He’s yours to keep, but if you fail

Why Writing Prompts

IMG_3471I haven’t been posting much on my blog anymore, except writing prompts. Why?

Well I wanted to improve the quality of the content on here. I’ve been trying to put images with my posts. I’ve been trying to write some short stories. Mind you I have about thirty short stories from april that are unedited because I was trying to write one a day for the month. It went better than expected but there is a lot of editing to do. So I’ve just been posting writing prompts everyday because they are quick and I can make a lot of them in advance and post them one at a time. Also they are fun. Hopefully they are useful and not just pretty. Anyway hopefully I will start doing some regular posting again.
