I need a list. A list where I keep all my ideas for prompts. A list just to get stuff saved and not forgotten. I lay in bed and came up with a dozen different prompts for this week, but can I remember any of them?? Of course not....
Now, get those brain cells working.
Actually, there is one and I know it's a bit "out there" but try it - just for me!
I was watching Oblivion on Saturday night. I'm a huge TC fan and had been really looking forward to it even though the reviews were pretty so so. But if he's in it, I know I'm going to love it. Now Sci-Fi isn't really my favourite film genre either but again, if he's in it, I watch it. Do you see a pattern there! Ha ha!
But really, what has all this Tom Cruise stuff got to do with anything? Well, during the film he had flashbacks to a memory he thought he didn't have.
And there we have it. I want you to go back in time to one of your own flashbacks.
You know the ones. You're standing in a queue thinking of nothing in particular and suddenly you think, for no particular reason, of a sunny day back when you were 7 and you were sitting in the front garden playing school with your teddies. Or that time when you were at the back of the class laughing silently so hard you had tears streaming down your face because the poor teacher had said something ever so slightly riské. Or when you were sitting across the table from the love of your life at a restaurant and you were wearing that new dress you'd just bought and the food was so spectacular.
Just ordinary snippets of your life.
They come into your thoughts from nowhere and very often, they are gone again like a wisp of smoke before you can hold onto them and realise what they were. Like dreams when you've just woken up they slip away even while you're still thinking about them.
Pay attention this week to these little flashbacks and try to hold on to one of them for a page.
Don't forget to link up over at Flick (here) with the tag WM#104. Personally, my biggest problem for this prompt will be which one to grab. This happens to me all the time so watch this space.
