NOTE:  There has been a change.  I will publish links to all entries the next week so that others will be led to your post.

If my exploration into hosting a prompt challenge draws enough people, I’ll make it every 2 weeks instead of monthly.



Welcome to February 2     Today’s prompt is:  Your worst dream/nightmare/daydream

So that you don’t feel so alone in your embarrassment, here’s the story of my worst dream:

Hard to choose between…

…the dinosaur bending down to eat me, mouth open, hot saliva dripping on my bed, teeth the size of my head reaching toward me.

… the Swami with diaper-like wrappings bending toward me at the door of my bedroom.  You might ask why that was so traumatic.  His veins, arteries, muscles and bones were easily seen where his head had been ripped off.

Both of those dreams happened before I turned five.  I didn’t know about dinosaurs, veins, arteries, or decapitation in any form.

If I remember correctly (iffy prospect at best) these visions disappeared after I tried to do a handstand using gymnastics rings my mom had bolted onto the roof of our concrete carport. 

Here are the rules:

  1. A prompt for #TMAT120 will be given the first Thursday of every month. The prompt challenge begins whenever it’s that day in your time zone. For example:  12:01am to 11:59pm January 5th.  It ends on the 2nd Thursday of the month.  

  2. I will list the links to all participants on the 2nd Thursday of the month so that others will be led to your blog.     

  3. Limit your #TMAT120 post to 120 words. People who participate in limited-word prompts aren’t expecting a 1,000 word explanation before it begins.

  4. Include the picture above to show that you are participating in the #TMAT120. Please don’t alter (except for size).  

  5. Please don’t use hard-core curse words. Only lazy writers use variations of the F word for shock “value.”

  6. Copy and paste the URL in the reply section below, or you can do a pingback if you have a WordPress blog.

  7. Take time to read other people’s posts, after all it’s only 120 words. And you might make a new friend.
