This week’s prompt is: In Hindsight…
“Of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are, “It might have been.”
– Kurt Vonnegut
“To paraphrase Oedipus, Hamlet, Lear, and all those guys, “I wish I had known this some time ago.”
– Roger Zelazny, Sign of the Unicorn
“The problem with comprehension is, it often comes too late.”
– Rasmenia Massoud, Human Detritus
All of our mistakes have made us into the people that we are today, and so this is not meant to be an exercise in regret, but rather a fun look back with the thought, “that was maybe not such a great idea.” Tell us about a past exploit of your younger, less wise self.
The article that you link to this prompt should be a new post written specifically for this assignment.
Dungeon Prompts can be a vehicle for us to open up the abandoned rooms inside ourselves and dust them off a bit. Take the prompt, explore the recesses of your mind, and get back with a poem, story, essay or creative offering. Link your post to this specific prompt page and I’ll share your link back with our readers.
To participate, all you’ll need to do is:
1. Tag your post with: “DungeonPrompts”
2. Link back to this page in the body of your post *
3. Dive deep within and give us a glimpse of your soul!**
*note: If the pingback doesn’t work, then please leave the link to your post in the comment section.
**If you don’t have a blog please feel free to join the discussion in the comment section
Be sure and come back to check out the other prompt contributors throughout the week. Comment on their posts and let them know what you think. Together we can help create a community of great writers and honest seekers. We are a mad blend, let us honor the wisdom within.
How about you?
