Now, I don’t do this very often but I just have to: What kind of stupid idea is this prompt? I mean, seriously? Writing your own obituary? I don’t mind if you want to do this on your own, but as a post?
When I saw this prompt today it kind of took my breath away. There are many people in this forum who lost someone or who are very sick and write to deal with what they have to deal with. I wrote this prompt and I had to think about a few of them I am in touch with. And I felt sick.
I wonder what they think about it. I wonder how it makes them feel, that for other bloggers and obviously WordPress it is like a game. Maybe I go to far with this and yes, you don’t have to do it and yes, you don’t even have to look at the Daily Prompt. But you know what? What if you have a bad day? What if being sick gets to you so much that you try to find an inspiration to write and the one thing you see is this prompt? What if you feel so sad about having lost someone close to you, that you don’t find words but in order to not drown you want to write but you lack inspiration and you try to find it in a Daily Prompt. And bang there is a smack in your face!
I think this was not thought through very well. I’ve never experienced it before but this prompt makes me really angry.
