Prompt Tips  
Tips on the Prompts:

Ah, so you are interested! (Yes! :D) I won't give you specific story lines, but prompts are meant to tickle your imagination. Somewhere in your mind is a great story (or several!) waiting to be told.

  • 1. BIRTH/LOSS: This doesn't have to be a person. It can be an object, a hope, an idea... anything. People hold onto different things for different reasons, so play with it.

  • 4. INERTIA: "The characteristic of matter whereby a stationary entity remains stationary unless acted upon by an outside force or whereby an object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an outside force." -Wordplay: The Philosophy, Art, and Science of Ambigrams, John Langdon

  • 5. SYZYGY: "The joining of two entities, without loss of identities." -Wordplay: The Philosophy, Art, and Science of Ambigrams, John Langdon

  • 9. ORIENTATION: (o·ri·en·ta·tion n.) can mean any of the following:
    _The act of orienting or the state of being oriented.
    _The direction followed in the course of a trend, movement, or development.
    _A tendency of thought; a general inclination: a Marxist orientation.
    _Sexual orientation.
    _An adjustment or adaptation to a new environment, situation, custom, or set of ideas.
    _Introductory instruction concerning a new situation: orientation for incoming students.
    _Awareness of the objective world in relation to one's self.


  • 11. EXTRINSIC: Bearing some relation to something else.

  • 18. AND IF THE ANSWER'S NO / CAN I CHANGE YOUR MIND?: These are lyrics from The Killers's song Change Your Mind. It's about choice and making changes... and it also happens to be one of my favorite songs, so it's a win/win. :D

  • 19. CAUGHT IN THE FORM OF LIMITATION: This is from Burnt Norton, the first in T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets. It's without a doubt one of the most beautiful poems ever written. You can read the entire thing here.

    Oh, thank you for the T.S. Eliot link. It's so beautifully laid out on that site. This is going to be good, I can tell.

    Oh. My Goodness. I'm so sorry. Where did this comment come from? How did I miss it? I bet you don't even want to do this anymore! And hey, after waiting since May, I wouldn't blame you.

    The whole table and rules and stuff is here, but really, I'm so sorry. 0_0 I don't think this ever reached my Inbox. Arg! >_<

    But your icon is a thing of GLORY!

    I'm considering claiming something, and in thinking about it wanted to find out what syzygy meant. ^.^;;; But while I was doing that, I noticed that your definition of inertia is slightly off - you only have half the definition. Inertia is also the principle whereby an object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. Which adds interesting places it can be taken and... yeah. XD Sorry. I'm going to go be the physics geek in the corner now. XDD
