Wednesday Writing Prompts #1

Happy Wednesday everyone! For Xmas I bought myself a little writing prompt journal. I just now started writing in it. For fun I'll share some of the prompts that I've written. Feel free to join in with your answers! I'm really curious to see what everyone else says.

1) What is your favorite way to spend a lazy day? 
The perfect day of laziness requires my comfy bed, the TV, and some snacks. I'll binge watch a TV show or a collection of my favorite movies. During all of  this, I'll read a book, do some writing, or work on a project of some sorts. The best lazy day starts early and staying up late. At one point, there needs to be one or two naps. 

2) Have you ever spoken up when you saw something going on that was wrong? Were you scared? What ended up happening? 
It's really hard for me to defend myself, but when someone is wrongly being attacked or being treated unjustly, I will speak out in their defense. For instance, my mother was pretty much being robbed by a phone company (that I will not name). They realized she was an easy target because her knowledge on technology and phones is limited. They not only overcharged her, but they also treated her like garbage on the street. I had enough and took the phone from her and gave them a swift lesson. They removed the fees and apologized. I spoke with their manager and informed them. Years later, that same company was sued for overcharging by a group of lawyers. My mom received a nice check of some of her money back. I wasn't scared during the fiasco, because it had to be done. Sometimes you need to be the hero. 

3) What is your favorite work of art? What do you love about it?
My favorite work of art would be the Cherry Blossom by Van Gogh. It's beautiful and it resonates within my soul. The colors sooth me and bring a smile to my lips. It is simple, but speaks volumes to me. The painting is an example of the painters brilliance with taking a simple object and bringing it to life. It is for sure my favorite piece ever. 

4) Write a diary entry, dated 10 years in the future.
Dear Diary, 
            Holy cannoli I'm 35 years old!  Not sure why it really hit me today. I guess time flies when life is so busy. It's nonstop at work. Plus I have that novel due next month. I really better get on that. 35 years old and I still procrastinate. Ugh my baby just turned 8 the other day. I can't believe it! Ugh, time slow down. Let me enjoy my youth and my baby's youth! extra time, I must fly

<3 Carole
