Prompt 18 “Losing Control”


I want you to write about an experience where you lost control (of your emotions, impulses, mind, body, life whatever). You do not have to write about this topic in the negative (you know I did haha) you can talk about falling in love, sky diving for the first time, having a baby, moving to another country there are just as many positive examples as negative so don’t feel that you have share something gut-wrenching (you are most welcome but the choice is yours). You can even write about something like the freedom of dance or getting carried away by your muse. Pictures are welcome! I did not paint this picture it is a wallpaper found on Google.

  3. Great prompt — of course, I’m torn: the “optimist” I wasn’t last week, has a tale of love, the pessimist — well you can imagine. Perhaps I can weave both stories together (or is that my usual cheating, Ooops, I mean fudging, the rules, lol.

      • You have indeed but I bet you have loads of stories to tell =) Falling in love. Orgasms. Anger. Revenge. Accidents (I have fallen down the stairs way too many times haha). Illness (I wrote about Epilepsy but if you have ever very ill or injured and not had full control over or use of your body). Dancing. Even childhood because you don’t have control over your life and decisions are made for you. Rebellion as a teenager (all those impulses can leave us a bit crazy). Are some examples

  8. I ended up taking a 2 stage approach. First are three horrible sonnets, then a poem (that I wrote several other mornings ago)
    All deal with being out of control on some level. Thanks for the great prompt!
