PROMPTed is a weekly collection of writing prompts to inspire your writing week. The prompts are loosely grouped under a common theme and include a random line prompt, a photograph, a song/music video, a sensory suggestion and a famous quote.
Our guest programmer for the month of July is Adam Byatt.
As we continue the journey through my CD collection, this song is one of my favourite U2 tracks. It has this beautiful melancholy, yet endowed with a sense of hope. The track comes from the live album, “Under a Blood Red Sky.” It’s the last track and the crowd singalong at the end is quite emotive.
Random Line Prompt
She lay in the darkness, her husband’s warm indentation cooling. From the bathroom the stream of water striking the bowl overpowered the dripping of the shower head.
A child’s wet kiss on the cheek
U2 – 40
Perseverance is more prevailing than violence; and many things which cannot be overcome when they are together, yield themselves up when taken little by little – Plutarch

Adam is an English teacher and occasional drummer sifting through the ennui, minutiae and detritus of life and cataloguing them as potential story ideas. They are pretty much a pad of sticky notes on the fridge door.
Occasionally he finds loose change.
