For Your Creative & Writing Inspiration: Quote from Roald Dahl, Prompts & More

Posted on the 15 October 2013 by Juliejordanscott @juliejordanscot

For Your Creative and Writing Inspiration: Roald Dahl quote, prompts and more What are you watching with your glittering eyes? Each day, a quote, an image, several questions and a writing prompt are offered to you to use for  Your Writing & Creative Inspiration in order to increase your creative thinking as well as your personal and soulful  development.  


The most helpful strategy is to read the quote, questions, prompt and list and not to "take them on" all at once, but to allow them to simmer in the back of your mind throughout the day. Sure, you may "write" one immediately, but don't call it "done" until you have allowed your powerful subconscious mind to bring up some unexpected responses for your conscious mind to create within.


"Watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it."

- Roald Dahl


What are the secrets hidden in your unlikely places?

How regularly do you see with your "glittering eyes"? What do you think Roald Dahl means when he uses this expression.

List: Make your lists from an unattached place and then use them as writing prompts.

 Field Trip:

Take a walk around a block you are familiar with, specifically looking for hidden secrets you haven't ever noticed in the past. I guarantee you will find at least one, if not many, surprises. You may also wish to take photos of these treasures. Bonus: Write of the experience and/or use the surprises as a writing prompt themselves.
