One-Minute Mondays


Welcome to Week 23 of One-Minute Mondays.

It’s amazing how our brains work and how we can form a connection between coffee → your favorite coffee creamer flavor is cinnamon vanilla creme → you used to have a dog named Cinnamon → now you have a dog named Pepper who just left a trail of socks from your sock drawer to her bed, because she couldn’t decide which pair she liked best.

This unsystematic train of thought is the basis behind One-Minute Mondays, an original weekly meme where I’ll post writing prompts that consist of one or two random, out-of-the-box words. The goal is to read the prompt, set a timer to one-minute (or click the youtube timer I’ve provided below), and write the first thing that comes to mind.

 

Rules:

  1. Let your mind wander like it’s supposed to.
  2. Don’t worry about sounding perfect and making complete sense.
  3. Don’t let your pencil/pen leave the page or your fingers leave the keyboard.
  4. Don’t stop to overthink. Just write.
  5. When your time is up, take a moment to read what you’ve written, and you may be surprised at how many potential writing prompts you’ve just created for yourself. 
  6. If you are interested in where your response is headed, you may exceed the one-minute time limit.
  7. You may participate in this exercise just for fun, or you may post your one-minute response to your own blog or any other form of social media.
  8. If you post your response, be sure to include a link back to this blog, Writing My Legacy.
  9. Paste the link for your post (NOT your blog) as a comment below before the end of Friday.
  10. If you do not have a blog or form of social media in which to post your response, you may copy it into the comment box below.
  11. Each week, I will pick one response and post it here the following Monday.

 

And the theme for this week is…..

The Friday 56 (#21)


Rules:The Friday 56
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it) that grab you.
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url. It’s that simple.

 The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted by Freda’s Voice where I’ll post a sentence of two from page 56 of either the book I’m currently reading or a random book from my shelf. If you would also like to participate, click the link to the host’s blog page.


 I’m still on this novel and probably will be for some time. Finals week is coming up; there’s lots of studying to do. Wish me luck.

Everyone have a great weekend! 🙂

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before – by Jenny Han

 

” ‘So you’re probably wondering what this is all about.’ I begin. And then I immediately falter. ‘It’s um, well, I wrote it a long time ago, and – ‘

‘You don’t have to explain.’

‘Really? You’re not curious?’

‘No. It was just really nice to get a letter like that. I was actually pretty honored.’

I let out a relieved sigh and sag against my locker. Why is Lucas Krapf just so exactly right? He knows how to say the perfect thing.

And then Lucas gives me a half grimace, half smile. ‘But the thing is…’ He lowers his voice. ‘You know I’m gay, right?’

‘Oh, right, totally,’ I say, trying not to sound disappointed. ‘No, I totally knew.’ So Peter was right after all.

Lucas smiles. ‘You’re so cute,’ he says, and I perk up again. Then he says, ‘Listen, can you not tell anybody, though? I mean, I’m out, but I’m not out out yet. You know what I mean?’

‘Totally,’ I say, super confident.

‘For instance, my mom knows but my dad only kind of knows. I haven’t outright told him.’

‘Got it.’ “

(pg. 155-156)

Surgeon General


Congratulations to My Simple Blog’s “Surgeon General” for being last week’s Photo Fridays selection!

This portrayal wasn’t what I was expecting. You found a way to tell a whole story with such few words. Great job!

My Simple Blog

“Why is he on stilts?” my little sister asked.

“Why not?” I snapped.

She stood there with her little pudgy fists on her hips, staring at the man walking down the road on stilts. Okay, maybe it was something you don’t see every day. Not that I was going to admit it to her.
