In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Connect the Dots.”
Today, I came across the WordPress Daily Post “Connect the Dots” which entails opening your nearest book to page 82, take the third full sentence on the page, and work it into a post somehow.
Although not your typical writer, I thought I would stretch my blogging muscles and see if I could come up with something.
But what do you write when you are not a writer?
What do I mean by “not a writer”?
Well, I do not create short stories, poetry or novels, authors and aspiring writers do. However, I need their stories to write my reviews as there is a considerable amount of existing material I can use and rely on.
Going from an entire book to just a sentence is going to be a challenge!
What can I write with: “Treehouses”, Henry said. “I had a treehouse when I was a kid”?
Well, I can at least show you what my perfect tree house may have looked like.
We had bunk beds and the finishing touch was pretty simple. Just pin a few bed sheets around the frame and voila. Let me tell you though, mummy was not impressed to say the least.
In our treehouse, we were always able to create our own magical world for a time at least, and let’s face it, bunk beds with pinned bed sheets was going to be the closest I ever get to being a princess in a huge luxurious castle (yes, even at that age I had my standards :)).
So, what tree house did you have when you were a kid?
