→ Summary: Youngjae lives with y/n and has for a while now, she had learned that he is a major fuckboy and has a thing for trying to get into her pants. What will happen when she is woken up in the middle of the night to his stupid nonsense?
Today is my 20th birthday! I feel so blessed that I got to spend it with my friends and my parents were able to be here. This morning Theresa and I hosted brunch at our apartment. I didn’t get to take a picture because I spent the whole time preparing lemonade and setting the table. Theresa was a big help considering I woke up a little late (oops).
After brunch my parents set off for home. They came up on Friday, and I’m grateful that I got to spend the weekend with them. Yesterday we went shopping and they bought me a new purse from Charming Charlie and two books from Barnes&Noble as my gift. I’m currently reading The List by Siobhan Vivian because she’s going to be one of my professors in the fall and I want to see what her writing is like.
Luckily, Theresa, Anna, and I were able to catch the tail end of Pittsburgh Pride. After my parents left we got ready and went downtown. This was my first pride and it was beautiful and colorful and I still don’t have a grasp on the words to describe it. I hope that next year I’ll be able to attend the parade.
After walking through pride, we went to a place called the water steps. We found a nice rock to sit on and we dipped our toes in the water. Then we crossed another bridge and went to the Point (which is the fountain I’ve been posting a lot of recently). It felt great to be out and about for a few hours, soaking up the sun and enjoying the rivers.
Now we are home and I’m showered and gonna spend some time reading my book and relaxing next to my air conditioner. The day isn’t over yet, but I felt like now was a good time to make my post. There will be a post right after this one with some pics from our adventures downtown today!
P.S. Enjoy my tulips! Everyone deserves a bouquet ;)
1) Objective writing: Describe a homeless man sleeping in the rain without using metaphors or similes. What is he wearing? Where is he? What does his face look like?
2) Subjective writing: Describe yourself or a friend without directly describing any physical characteristics. For example, don’t write ‘sharp features, brown hair’, write ‘face of a fox, hair like chocolate’.
3) Creative writing: Describe a car crash without using the words car, crash, vehicle, or accident. Think of how things look, smell, sound, feel, and taste. Ex. 'The road was a smear of black ice and wet glass, snowflakes melted on slowly cooling skin.
4) Descriptive writing: Sit in a coffee shop and take detailed notes on one of the baristas. Write your assumptions of their personality based on these notes. Think like Sherlock.
5) Emotive writing: Describe the feelings of an artist after his house is robbed of the artwork he had on display.
6) Disconnected writing: Describe a woman’s outfit without mentioning that there is a person wearing it. Ex. 'The pink hand bag jostled from side to side against the magenta slacks ’
7) Informal, personal writing: In a public place, assign names to people based on what stands out most about them. Eg. 'The pink lady’, 'Dog Face’, 'Bubble Gum’, 'Loud Shoes’
8) Detailed writing: Write about the sensory experiences of your next meal. Use metaphor and simile to show the reader what the meal makes you feel / what memories it conjures. Remember to describe it with all five senses.
9) Situational writing: Describe an imaginary room in someone’s house. For each imaginary object, write where the homeowner acquired it, why they like it, and any memories they have attached to it.
10) Writing out of your comfort zone: Imagine that you are an animal. Describe a scene from that perspective. Remember that animals don’t think in words, so avoid complex chains of thought. Instead, try to give an impression of the surroundings using fragments of thought. Eg. 'Cold underfoot, rain, loud and wet, swollen river.’
I would love to see what you guys come up with for these prompts. Remember that if your writing takes you off track, go with it! Prompts are guides, not rules. If anyone does these, message me and I’ll reblog them and say a few things to promote your writing!
