Writing from Tumblr - kittycatstevens: Life and Literature by Kitty Cat...


Life and Literature by Kitty Cat Stevens: 

“Life and Literature is a series of miniature books collected inside a tattered and discarded old book of the same name.

The original book has been carved out to include 12 niches, each with a small handmade book inside. Each miniature book includes hand watercolored pages, vintage dictionary papers, and an inspirational quote that was typed out on a vintage Smith-Corona typewriter. All these pages are sewn together and covered by a portrait of the author that’s been embellished with hand-embroidered details. 

The goal was to celebrate a bibliophile’s fondness for literature, writing, and words.“ Read More »

Journaling prompts!

1. Do you feel wanderlust? Are there things--moods, books, shows, times of the year--that trigger it, or is it more of a constant thing? Is it a moving-away from something or a moving-toward something? How do you manage it when you can't go somewhere?

2. What was the last book you read? How long ago was that? Do you consider yourself a "reader"? Why or why not? Do you want to read more, or do you think you should read less? Why or why not?

3. Make a list of things you would like to change about your life--and then things you could do to change them. Why do you want them changed? Why haven't you changed them yet? Are these real reasons or are they excuses?

4. What are your guilty pleasures? Why are they "guilty" and not just pleasures? Where does the guilt come from--and does it actually apply to your life as you live it now?

5. Copy down the lyrics of your latest favorite song in the middle of a page, then, in the space around it, make notes and talk about why you like it so much. Is there a killer bit of music at some point? Do the words really resonate with you? Does the meaning give you guidance, or the poetry of the lines speak to you?

6. If you could assemble a council of awesome people from anywhere in time to advise you in your life, who would be on it? Why? What guidance could they offer? Do they have biographies you could read or websites you could follow?

7. What is something you buy at the store that you could make at home? Have you tried it? Would you switch to home made? Go online and research recipes or methods or tutorials; print or copy the good ones in your book / journal file for future reference.

Division of Muse Relations - Your weekly dose of story-starters!

1. There's a door in a hedge that has only a brick wall behind it, but sometimes golden light shines out from under it. Who is curious enough to investigate? What do they find? What happens to them--adventure or retribution?

2. Children in a quiet neighborhood keep seeing strange shadowy beings walking around in the streets outside their homes, but the adults never see them. They never come into the homes, and never even seem to notice that there are homes there, but they're definitely doing something. Are any of the kids brave enough to find out what? 

3. A woman's cat has always been the sort to bring home small animals--usually alive--and drop them at her feet. But now the mice have been replaced by stranger things. What is the cat bringing home now? Where is he finding them? What happens when he lets them loose in the house? And what can the woman do about them?

4. A young boy sees a unicorn in a public park, and isn't happy about the whole virgin association. But the unicorn keeps showing up, and looks sort of lost in the middle of a big city. What does he do about it?

5. Someone goes shopping for hammers and picks up what looks like a rough old sledgehammer--and happens to be the Hammer of Thor. They're worthy, but they really don't know what to do with all that power and responsibility, so they go looking for Thor. Do they find him? Where? Is he still worthy? Can the power be given back? What happens along the way?

As always, these are free for you to use, but if you like them and post something somewhere with a web address, I'd love to see them!
