30 Day Creative Writing Challenge


30 Day Creative Writing Challenge
Day 1  → Take your least favorite character you’ve ever created. Put them in a scene that would drive them mad
Day 2  → Write a short story/scene using the following words: luscious, debilitating, sunny and brick.
Day 3  → Write about whatever tickles your fancy.
Day 4  → Write a scene of someone running through the woods. You are not allowed to use adverbs.
Day 5  → Pick a food you find repulsive and then write about eating it. Be descriptive.
Day 6  → Envision a day with your perfect weather and describe what would ruin it.
Day 7  → Write a scene of what your mornings are like from when you wake up. Write it in second person.

Day 9  → Write terrible smut like you see in the back of Cosmo. Feed off the clichés.
Day 10  → Describe in as much detail as possible your most recent dream. Stay as true to it as you can. Let it be as confusing as real dreams often are.
Day 11  → You are traveling through time. Pick a destination and describe what happens when a strange person (you) interacts with the people of the time.

Day 15  → You have two people. Make them make love or have sex or fuck like animals.
Day 16  → Write a scene from an animal’s point of view. Either in a zoo, caged, running free or lounging on your carpet. Any animal and any place.
Day 17  → It’s the end of the world (as we know it). What has caused it and what are you going to do?
Day 18  → Pick a sport. Pick another sport. Combine the two and play. See if this can be humorous. Add fire.
Day 19  → Imagine if you had wings. Are you the only one or does everybody have them? Why?
Day 20  → Write a hypothetical conversation you could have with your cup of coffee/tea/vodka.
Day 21  → Write about anything that floats your boat.
Day 22  → You are being hunted. By what and why?
Day 23  → Start off a short story with this sentence: “For the first month our town remained untouched…”
Day 24  → Write a scene where your character suffers from your greatest fear.
Day 25  → You are dead. Figure out why.
Day 26  → Write the most clichéd thing you can think of.

Day 28  → Write a story that is purely conversation.
Day 29  → Write a children’s tale about a missing sock.

Tis the season of the 30s

It has been a little while since I've blogged. Not for any particular reason other than I have been stupidly busy with life and work. Those of you who read my blog regularly had the joy of having to witness me going through a roller coaster few months. The good news is that the roller coaster has stopped, I have survived the ride and I am looking forward to stepping on to the next few fairground attractions! Thank you to everyone who propped me up and supported me along the way!

We are getting into the difficult time of the year now. November. Ugh, how I hate November with a passion. The only positive is that my job is so busy it keeps me distracted from all the tough days and the month moves faster than any other month of the year.

This year, the November lull has arrived in mid-October. Two of my friends turn 30 at the start of November. My little sister should be turning 30 in early November also. Today I was ordering cards and getting together their gifts for their birthdays an…

Happy 30th birthday Marguerite

Dear Marguerite,
In an alternative reality we are preparing ourselves for the weekend of a lifetime this weekend, you turn 30 on Friday! Whoop! Happy birthday little sister! Where have the years gone? I have no doubt that we would be hitting a European city for a few cocktails and a spa weekend or I would be back in Ireland for a party to end all parties. If there was one thing you could do by the tender age of 17 it was throw a party. 
I wish more than anything that we could have that weekend together. A weekend of gossip, of laughter and probably over indulgence. No doubt you would still disapprove of my style, my ability to put on make up and my hair. No doubt your insistence on getting ready for a few hours would still drive me insane. 
I often wonder what your life is like in that alternative reality. Are you a wife? Are you a mum? Are you a career driven woman with plans of world domination? Are you a wanderer with an insatiable lust to see all the world and explore it's wo…

Life of Lu: Thankfuls 29/10/17

I had a moment yesterday.
I cried.
The tears were unfortunate and a manifestation of forgotten memories and regurgitated feelings from years gone by.
The foundation of those tears were this blog, and the content of this blog.
I sometimes forget that there is a little part of the internet that holds my feelings, my deepest darkest moments and my anxieties, as well as my triumphs, delights and fond memories.
The blog was read, and it's contents had the potential to spoil a very important relationship in my life.
I got upset.
As I said, I cried.
For the first time in many years, I remembered the many people who turned their backs on me not because of anything I had done but because of situations in which I was merely an affected bystander. 
The mind is a wonderful thing in that it can hide these moments from memory. It is also a cruel master who can cut you with these moments when you are at your most vulnerable. At this time of the year I am at my most vulnerable. In reality I will…
