Blog Writing Prompt!
  • There are a lot of great blogs here on Noobtoob and to help future great blogs start I'm going to be posting a writing prompt every month. To participate simply tag your blog post OCTPrompt .

    Great , insightful, funny, or imaginative posts will be promoted on the main page and their authors adored for eons...or until the next month's prompt.

    April PROPMT
    April Showers, Bring May Flowers, that's a saying in the western world. It usually means that you have to go through something unpleasent to reap positive benifits. April is also the time were a lot of Americans do "Spring" Cleaning to prepare their homes and lives for Summer. So what time in your life have you endored the rain and stuck it out to get the sweet reward? Are there times when you feel the need to start fresh in preperation for something better or speacial?



    MARCH PROMPT
    Today March 8th, is International Women's Day. While video games are usually looked at as misogynistic ( usually by those that never bothered to play them) have you ever played a game that either spoke to you as a woman or as a man made you emphasize with woman in a new or eye opening way? What type of experience was it? If you've never had this experience do you think one is possible? In what situation?

    February Prompt
    We all love playing games, and even though people still want to argue if they as a whole are art there's no denying that one of most important components to the whole most certainly is. MUSIC. We All have music that seem personal to us, stirs emotion and of course conjure memories good and bad. So this month take a song that resounds with you and free write to it. Does it tell a story? Who are the characters? Why is this YOUR song? or you can analyze it or re imagine it.

    December's Prompt:

    Our entire sense of self is based on a million little choices and a few grand ones. You can change one choice you made, imagine how it changes you. Have your current self have a conversation with the potential you that never happened.

    Have you ever felt like you've tasted greatness? Have you ever achieved what you thought was unachievable? What was your moment? Was it game related?

    October's Writing prompt!

    October for many people is 30 days of waiting and Halloween. One of the best parts of October is that everyone gets to embrace their inner creeper and revel in all things gore and terrifying. For some its monsters, creatures and mutilated people for others scares have to come from a more subtle psychological place. So what scares you and what games have scared you? How do you think the next generation of games will scare us?
    To start off September Prompt:

    For many countries September is the time when children head back to school, but of course school isn't the only place we learn from some of life's most important lessons can be learned with a controller in your hand. What are some important life lessons that you learned through games?
  • Done & done. And hey; it even helped me to finally come up with a blog title :D

    Weird, I haven't given advice or wisdom in a long time. It feels funny. Unnatural. Hmm....
