The last prompt of Best Day produced a select few amazing tales. I don’t want to do a round up as they were all brilliant but will link you to this one from Sir T about having sex in your twilight years.
This Meme is taking a Break
4thoughts meme has been around for a long time, under this name and also known as Food 4 Thought Friday, hosted by Kilted Wookie.
One of the rules of 4thoughts is that the writer can enter what they want, but it must stick to the prompt. So if the prompt is all about your favourite dinner, you can’t then write about the BDSM club you and your partner went to… Though it would be undeniable more entertaining. But having to write to prompt also means you have to dedicate your time to writing for this meme, rather than linking an article you were posting anyway, so sometimes the numbers dwindled. However, I liked the fact the writers couldn’t deviate from the prompt. It led to really excellent, thoughtful work. Which is why the meme was set up in the first place – to get people to think, and then write.
There are plenty of fab memes out there where they advise a prompt to inspire, but are happy for you to link words about anything. My favourite of these is Wicked Wednesday – it has been around for a long time and Marie knows what she is doing!
Other memes I like:
The Future of 4Thoughts
I am not a quitter – so when I say the meme is having a break, I can assure you it will be back when I have more time on my hands and energy in my energy bank. When you put time into a regular community project, like this, it can be dispiriting when the numbers are low. So I think a change is in order. I have some ideas and want to speak to a couple of people about it, but would be happy to receive input from anybody, particularly if you have linked to the meme before. You know where to find me…
