Languages. I did not check all the writingprompts and suggestions. Was is already a topic in the past?

Are you studying another language currently?
If you would like to study a language which would it be?

Postcrossing is often used by writing in other languages.

I would like to learn French. Studied it years ago. I like Frensch chansons to listen. And would like to read Albert Cossery, Jean Giono … in original language.

“What time period would you visit if you had a time machine, and why?”


I don’t know if someone already posted this, how about:

  • What can you do right now to save the Earth?
  • What does peace mean to you?
  • Someone who inspires you to be a better person.

“Your favorite songs to listen together with your family on Christmas day?”

Writing Prompt!

My idea is to have #GratitudeWriteup. Send a gratitude card to your loved ones.


Your first memories

Something I am very interested in is; what was your grand-parents (or parents)'s occupation, where did they live? I find it extraordinary to see how our lives changed these last decades… Even if everything isn’t perfect, there is a huge gap between their lives when they were young and ours. It is now easy to communicate with the entire world, and that’s already a big difference!
As for me, my grand-parents on my father side had to grow up during WW2 in Normandy. On my mother side, my Taiwanese grand-parents grew up under the Japanese colonisation. These are differentlives, but these events in their youth had an impact on the way they lived the rest of their life. Well, I won’t tell all their stories, but I find it interesting as a writing promp to write about it. Because that’s an universal rule; we wouldn’t be where we are today (on Earth) without our grand parents! :blush:


About the writing prompts:

  • Books you recently borrowed from public library
  • Are public libraries still important in the digital age?
  • Do you remember your first library visit?

In their profile someone asked me to discuss their country and the people . I did. I wrote something bad and something good about it. When they received it they seemed upset - but they asked and I did say some nice things.

I gave both negative and positive comments and the person still seemed a bit upset. They asked for the good and bad.

I removed some posts because they are off-topic.
We talked already about this theme several times and you can read a statement of the admins about that here.
