Writing Prompt: My Favourite Things

OK, there are some things in life that give each us of a private kind of joy. It’s different for everyone.

This prompt is going to be short and sweet. List some of the things that you love, that make you happy and that inspire you. Take 3-5 elements and write a short narrative that incorporates them all.

For me, there a few things that make me smile, that calm me and generally make me glad to be a part of this mortal coil.

1. A book I can’t put down. (I’ve already Candide by Voltaire, Our Ancestors by Italio Calvino, A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole and Twenty Thousand Streets Under the Sky by Patrick Hamilton all 10 times each)

2.  A kiss

3. Sitting on the bench in the garden and smoking a Marlboro Light with a glass of Pinot Noir whilst looking at a full moon.

4. When my cat crawls on my chest in the morning and wakes me by licking my chin with her sandpaper tongue.

5. Cooking for a large group of people

Think about the things that make you happy and write a story that includes them all in one form or another.
