Dear letterists,

Imagine NASA finding a planet we could live on. But it's very small. Only 10 000 people would be able to live there.

Who would we be sending up there to live and why?

Tag your letter 'thoughts'.

WRITING TOPIC  |  LOVE


We’ve all been blinded by the blanket of emotions that comes from falling down the precipice of union into love. While we only have one word for it, the ancient Greeks in their pursuit of wisdom and self-understanding, found seven different varieties of love that we all experience at some point:

EROS (EROTIC LOVE)
MANIA (OBSESSIVE LOVE)
STORGE (FAMILIAR LOVE)
LUDUS (PLAYFUL LOVE)
PRAGMA (ENDURING LOVE)
PHILAUTIA (SELF LOVE)
PHILIA (AFFECTIONATE LOVE)
AGAPE (SELFLESS LOVE)

Choose one as your topic and use it as the title of your poem or short story.

Tag your letter, "love".

Year after year,  like everyday, tonight also she looked for one familiar face in the crowd, one phone call from a friend, one letter from someone who cared,  one hand she could squeeze between hers, one smile to reflect upon, one shoulder to share the great edifice of her sorrows...

... And then like every other night, she made peace with her hopes; succumbed onto a damp pillow and dampened desires.

WRITING CHALLENGE
Timed Prompt

Most of us are familiar with writing prompts where a bunch of words, a theme, a picture, etc, are used to help get creativity jump started when faced with a blank piece of paper. And you usually have quite some time to ponder, brainstorm or even research after initial ideas are written on paper. But what do you think about imposing short time limits when responding to a prompt - 60 minutes, 20 minutes, or even 5 minutes? Want to give it a try?

I want you to take a look at the illustration below. You have 30 minutes to scribble something down. It might be a poem, a short story, it's entirely up to you. I hope this will be a fun and productive exercise for eve...

Trust in Mij

I am asked at a point low as I can be;
I look around and there he is with pleas in his eyes,
TRUST MIJ, he does cry.
I wait because that is what you do when very few large corporations  "own you";
The weight is painful but he seems so desicively clear,
He wishes to clean the air between mistrust and lies.
We asked well before ten that he procure the medicines,
He cannot even be bothered to wake up a stitch.
Frailty is my weakened curse;
those who are are not use it like popping candy man.
They think in their head, this bitch was yours yet easy pickings like nearly D-ead.
Once again I have completed my way, look away my 2nd one.
Trust you seek, keep on looking.
For I am not...

WOD: Love in Many Finds

It was all a game. One that during my recovering from cancer; kept me sane. I had home health carry me to chemo and radiation; my boys never knew when they were very young that Mommy had stage 3 uterine cancer. By the time Elliot was born; and the next few years, it matastisized.

So to fill my lonely days, I reconnected with a "boy" I had known in Frankfurt, Deutschland. He brought me into the Facebook game; Castle Age.
It was a clicker game but they had started guilds. I was asked to join my friends guild and I was a cleric; which EVERY GUILD did not have enough in guild battle. Our group became pretty good but back stabbing and infighting always occurred.

Duri...
