Anonymous asked: Raquel, would you mind throwing down some poetry prompts? :) I'd so appreciate it!

inkskinned:

Of course I wouldn’t mind!!! :) I get stuck a lot too, so here’s some prompt sites that I have bookmarked for when I’m like “how else do i make sadness and love into words i’m clean out of ideas”

1. Dragon Writing Prompts, great for the fantasy writers and also complete with excellent writing challenges.

2. Twelve Days Of Writing, to get you back into the groove if you haven’t been writing for a while. If you plan on taking part in National Poetry Writing Month (you can make your NaPoWriMo any month!!), here’s 30 prompts to  get you through. 

3. Not officially a prompt, but Write or Die is excellent for just keyboardsmashing through writer’s block (try not to actually keyboard smash, just do the writer-version of keyboard smash and blurt out every word that comes through your brain even if it’s “sandwich taco taco taco,”). they have settings for the masochist in you and the peaceful flowerchild too (i’ve never tried the stimulus mode but it looks really nice?). Just make sure you copy-paste your beautiful result because the site will not save your writing!!

4. Mix and Match is a great writing challenge and the list of traits provided here is good for anytime writing too!!

5. The Character Attribute Randomizer is great for fiction/fantasy writers (and artists!!) and/or if you just feel like doing a flash fiction piece.

6. Speaking of flash fiction!! This is a random word and random phrase generator for quick flash fiction prompts (that second link does both!!). Flash fiction is my favorite type of writer’s block intervention!!! For those who don’t know what it is, it’s pretty simple!! just set up a timer (try for about 2 minutes although i’d accept up to 5 depending on your typing speed) and wRITE for those 2 minutes about whatever that word/phrase made come into your head. the best part about flash fiction is that if you have literally NOTHING to write about, you only wasted 2 minutes languishing over that one prompt. i REALLY like getting little writer groups together and just doing flash fiction for like an hour, reading our little stories and poems to each other :) mine get really weird bc who cares if i kill off everyone who cares if the main character is a duck like it’s maybe 200 words. i’ve had friends who hate writing tell me they love flash fiction :)

7. A list of poetry prompts, with links at the bottom for more :)

8. Since you’ve got to have the right mood, here’s where to find rain in the absence of actual precipitation, here is a white noise generator (here is another), and here is where you can find endless classical music (where you can skip/add/loop as many as you’d like!!). While you’re listening, check out this random picture generator and see if you can write about the images that show up! 

9. One Hundred Themes to write about!! One hundred and eighty prompts to write about!! (some of these seem to be less geared towards stylistic writing, but whatever works for you works for me!!)

10. Writing is a Virus automatically generates more writing prompts than I could list, all with the click of a button!! :)

I hope this helped!!! :) good luck my love!!

1. He makes sure that the picture will be what the fan wants. Her with her idol. He even admits that it’s not all about him - that when fans are meeting celebrities they want the celebrity to acknowledge them, not just the other way around.

2. In this video, Tom asks every single fan he takes a picture with what their name is. He doesn’t have to; he could just try and get through them as quick as possible. He knows they have been waiting to meet him for a long time and so makes it worthwhile.

3. He doesn’t have to say this. That’s why it’s so nice, because he didn’t have to say it. He may or may not know this will make her day, but the reasoning doesn’t matter. She is obviously nervous - it’s like he’s reminding her that he’s as normal and as human as she is.

4. By now he’s taken pictures with every fan there, signed anything they wanted him to and he’s being hurried, but despite this he wants to make sure that they all got what they wanted. Like before, he knows how long they’ve been waiting and it’s likely they won’t get this opportunity again.

5. These are his parting words to the fans there. You would expect them to thank him (which they do) for using up what little spare time he has, but instead he thanks them. It’s clear he knows that without his fans he wouldn’t be as successful as he is.

6. He winds down his window to wave goodbye to them, even though the man driving is eager to get him to where he needs to be. He looks happier than the fans receiving the gesture, like he revels in seeing other people happy. The main thing here and in the rest is that he doesn’t have to do things, but he still does. I think, aside from his astounding acting and looks, this is why he’s so popular. (video)

Such a nice man! Wouldn’t believe he was Loki if I hadn’t seen Thor! :P

Song of the Day: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu - Kyary Anan

Super stressful time for me at the moment and, somehow, this song is very relaxing for me :P

This, musically speaking, is one of my favourite Kyary songs, love the guitar riff that completely switches it up ^_^

Showing some love for pondewaywayway here :)

Brief encounter: touching strangers

When photographer Richard Renaldi started putting strangers together to make intimate portraits, he had a wish list. “I had a list of what I wanted to catalogue,” he says on the phone from New York, “in particular, certain types with different backgrounds and races. I remember I wanted a Muslim woman in a veil. And a cop. I knew I wanted a cop.” More photos
