About 7 years ago, some writer friends and I started a writing prompt community on Livejournal. We did this because one was desperately needed. We wanted it to be an answer to other writing / character-centric communities various blogging venues. Those of us who were there were looking for new and interesting ways to stretch our characters and to dig down deep into who they were and are wanted to create a compelling reason to show up at the page - and so Writer's Muses was born. It was well received and copied many times over.

Time and the social media landscape being what they are, however, Writer's Muses along with the scores of other sites fell to the wayside. Following the incredible amount of encouragement from past members of the sites over at Livejournal, Dreamwidth, PanHistoria elsewhere , we decided to repeat that past success if possible and do it here on my blog, as well as on past venues - and with social media links here on Google+, on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and Bloglovin'.

How it works
Each week will feature a series of writing prompts. In the past on the Livejournal and Dreamwidth communities we had a minium word count of 150 words. It wasn't a hard and fast rule because we know that sometimes certain characters that we write tend to be very short and sweet with their responses, and so those are acceptable, too. The key to Writer's Muses prompts was for members to simply enjoy the process and want to show up at the page.

After picking a prompt, write it out in your blog or even your physical journal.

A good format to follow is the one that we set up for our members, but you can do it any way you like of course!

Prompt Set #, Prompt Number and Letter( if applicable), and the Title.

An example would be:
1.1 - What Mother Told Me Never to Do

Some of us add the name of the character, the fandom and the word count. such as shown here. It can be listed at the top of the entry or most prefer it to be beneath the entry like this.

Muse (Character):Fanny Fae / Faelyn
Fandom: Original Character / Folklore / Mythology
Word Count: 454

You can add your own tags for muse names, subject and the like . The key is to have fun!

This group originally got its start on Livejournal and Dreamwidth. Over the years, we had scores of writing prompts as well as others who wanted to share what they had written with fellow writers.

Today, with the influx of all kinds of social media platforms, Writer's Muses is moving forward. Check us out daily for the latest prompts.

I have to confess that Tumblr is probably one of my least favourite sites on the web. I guess it may be because I remember the days of Usenet and how nasty that could be. To my mind, Tumblr is far worse. What is even more disturbing, however, is the rampant plagiarism amongst Tumblr pagans and Wiccans.

This latest blog entry is a bit of a rant, but I believe it needed to be said - AGAIN.

One of the Root words and symbols in Sekhmet's name is the Sekhem Scepter or Gardiner glyph sign number S42.  this particular scepter was the symbol of authority and was often carried by nobles and priesthood. It was also used for the passing over offerings given at the temple.

This Moomas season, anytime you see that Horus = Jesus idiocy, please feel free to repost this photograph. The wretched scholarship that keeps getting passed along via memes on social media needs to end. Please help by showing the facts rather than the perpetuated bad information.

Posted to my other blog, Life Belongs to Sekhmet  (niankhsekhmet.com) I am trying a bit of a new direction.  Since I am living the life of sustainability, permaculture and hoping to improve our level of self-reliance, I focus on what it means to get back to the land and the journey along the way.
