Do you ever get tired of people who point out that the prompts are similar to things already produced?
No, not at all. It does worry me a bit though. I hope such comments don’t discourage writers to take up on a prompt. It’s pretty safe to say that almost every prompt has already been elaborated upon. May that be a written work by an established author or a unknown fanfinction writer who used a certain plot in 2002, way before another writer, author x, got famous for it in 2010. You see, prompts are merely vague ideas. It’s the writer who brings them to life. I don’t really care if people say ‘already been done’, then you go through the comments and you see three different book titles and animes where said plot has already been used. Most of the time the titles don’t ring a bell. But sometimes, sometimes they do. And often I find myself wishing that someone would write the prompt because the already existing story could be written so differently. There is a myriad of possibilities a prompt could be written. It makes me think of the saying: ‘It’s not what you say, it’s how you say it’ that is important. Same goes for writing.
Amigo! Today I was on my way home from work, took the same route as always, when something caught my eye! There’s a pizza place that has been there my whole life, but I’ve never questioned it before, called Amigo’s Pizzeria! Instantly had to go in and buy myself some pizza of course. It was delicious btw. But now, ever since following this blog, the word amigo has so much more to it! Maybe I should work at amigos pizzeria instead of my current work 🤔
