Welcome to my new prompt series/meme/category!
I’ve been thinking about adding a “prompt offering” here at MPP, for quite some time now. I wanted to do something a bit different and only on a monthly basis.
Prompts will be posted at the beginning of each month and anyone who wants to participate will have the whole month to do so.
So, why Movie Musings?
I plan to pick a movie title each month to be used as a prompt. I will also include a link to a movie information site if possible, by way of including what the original concept for the film was all about.
But what participants write about.. well that could be just about anything that comes to mind, for that particular prompt.
I’ve always been intrigued by movie titles. Obviously, Hollywood and other film-makers work hard to weave their magic with the teaser that is the title. But what other roads could be explored with that very same phrase/or word?
My first prompt suggestion :
A movie that was released in 1979; based on a true story. Starring Dick Van Dyke. This is one of his finest performances, in my opinion and definitely not his usual forte, seeing him in this dramatic role. Click on the title/link above for more information about this film.
Remember though.. it’s not about the movie, it’s about the title and how you interpret it.
Can’t wait to see what you all come up with. Please return and add your story/poem/photo link below, as a comment, so that we can all enjoy your work.
At the beginning of each month, I will have a new movie prompt and will also provide a link to the previous month’s prompt and comments, for easy reference.
And please DO spread the word about my new prompt series (button in sidebar if you’d like to take along too!) at your own blogs. Thanks so much.
Now I need to get started on my own poem or short story. ♥♥
