Creative Writing Prompt 1

CREATIVE WRITING PROMPT USING YOUR HOUSEHOLD AS INSPIRATION

 

As a stay at home mom who strives to keep my creativity alive and burning I find I sometimes feel the drudgery of motherhood leaves me feeling uninspired.  Whose with me?  Right!  This post is a repost of one I originally created last year but I have now updated.  During the festive season we have the Christmas carol music going all the time.  One time to amuse myself while yet tackling the boring dishes yet again I found myself creating a different version of Oh Christmas Tree.  I began creating a version of the song to my Kitchen Sink because well I just love it so much.

Because this is just a writing exercise to loosen my creativity it is not perfect but the purpose was not to be perfect but to try something different to stretch my brain muscles.

Oh Kitchen Sink, Oh Kitchen Sink

by Bonnie Dani

Oh kitchen sink, oh kitchen sink,
thou faucet is most fair and lovely!
Oh kitchen sink, oh kitchen sink,
thou faucet is most fair and lovely!
The sight of dishes piled high at Christmas time,

spreads feelings of distress and despair far and wide.
Oh kitchen sink, oh kitchen sink,
thou faucet is most fair and lovely!

Oh kitchen sink, oh kitchen sink,
Doth not sparkle in stainless steel beauty!
Oh kitchen sink, oh kitchen sink,
Doth not sparkle in stainless steel beauty!
Your plug is clogged in sludge of brown,
and your drain oh so very slow down.
Oh kitchen sink, oh kitchen sink,
Doth not sparkle in stainless steel beauty!

Oh kitchen sink, oh kitchen sink,
thou hast a malodorous smell!
Oh kitchen sink, oh kitchen sink,
thou hast a malodorous smell!
I dost proclaim a grand cleaning,
with rubber gloves and scrubby things.
Oh kitchen sink, oh kitchen sink,
Oh why thou can’t be self-cleaning!

 

That was actually quite fun once I got in to it.  So what is your favourite Christmas carol?  How about a Challenge?

I would love to see or hear about your creation.  Remember it doesn’t have to be perfect by any means it just has to take you brain out of its usual comfort zone and push it to think about things in a new way.  When we do push ourselves in this way we begin to think about other things in a new way as well.  Also, it is just to have a bit of fun in an unexpected way!  Send me a link to your creation and it would be great if you could link back to this post.  So what will you choose?  Toothbrush, rocking chair, coffee maker, computer, vacuum cleaner, dishwasher, washing machine…

Cheers and have some writing fun,
