October Writing Prompts

25 Sep

Hello Hello my sub-fertile friends. Day 1 of no-smoking is going pretty well thus far. I have chewed one piece of nicotine gum and I’ve been awake for almost 4 hours. Not too shabby.

Can you believe it’s almost October? I, for one, am super bummed. I love summer and it always makes me sad to see it go. Usually the only thing that keeps me going through the Autumn is busting out my Fall wardrobe. Alas, that isn’t so exiting for me this time around because I can’t wear pants or boots…you know, other than the one I am medically required to wear. Unfortunately, it isn’t as cute as the new wedge boots I just purchased.

Anywho. Am I the only the one sometimes gets tired of being consumed by infertility? I feel like it’s all I have to write about. I know this is primarily in infertility blog, but I can only go over my follicle count, Clomid symptoms, DPO, and other technical stuff so often lest I begin to repeat myself. Plus I like to do things that help bring this community together in ways that helps remind is that we are strong, beautiful, awesome women with so much more to offer this world than just the products of our uteruses (uteri?)…or lack thereof.

I loved hosting the weight loss challenge that has been taken over by StorkChaser as well at the Lazy Pinterest Challenge she is also conducting. I look forward to Manly Monday/A Weird Glimpse Into My Marriage a la Stupid Stork. And EmHart’s September Photo Challenge has been great as it allows me a peak into your lives that I might not see otherwise. I’m an unabashed voyeur. In light of these things, I thought I would come up with some daily writing prompts for the month of October. I think it will help us to get to know each other even better, celebrate our lives outside infertility, and give us a reason to laugh at ourselves.

I know some of you prefer to remain anonymous, but no worries, if there is a prompt that you feel could compromise your identity just skip over it or write about what you would if you could. If you would like to participate leave me a comment and I will add your name to the list of participants which I will also post with links back to your blog each day when I answer the prompt. Feel free to link back to this post on your blog because the more the merrier! I’m really looking forward to this ladies!

So, without further ado, here are your writing prompts.

October 1: What is your astrological sign and do you feel it’s accurate?
October 2: How did you husband/spouse/partner propose?
October 3: What is your most embarrassing moment?
October 4: Post a video blog (vlog?) of the following (feel free to get your hubs in on this one):

What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
