Prompt #339: Playful

When Brigit Delaney writes, I hang on her lips… okay, I know that’s not the right way to say it, but bottom line is that I am a fan of Brigit’s writing. This is the second time Brigit has taken the time to do the top 3 roundup for Wicked Wednesday. The first time was for week 313 (read it here). You can follow Brigit on her blog and on Twitter.

Top 3 by Brigit Delaney

I’m tempted to believe that Marie created this prompt just for me. And selecting a top three took a lot of re-reading. Most people took a break from writing erotica for this prompt, which, actually, considering my current life, worked for me. I appreciated the insider’s look into people’s processes and journeys as writers, and the explanations of how writing helps them think through life. So, without further ado… here are my choices for this week.

The Writing on the Wall by Molly Moore
I always love a story of someone’s journey, especially someone I admire, so Molly’s post was satisfying in many ways. The post provides a window into the history of how she found a love of books to how she began writing erotica and creating her blogging empire.

Writing to See by Kisungura
Kisungura’s post is beautifully vulnerable, referencing her childhood trauma, how it effects her today, and how she uses writing to work through “challenging realisations,” clarify and raise questions, and think about her life. I especially loved the part where she describes asking her lover to write words on her body that represent how he feels about her or what he sees when he looks at her. I could identify with her story deeply.

Whisper into Melody by Cuntella
I chose this post for Considering Cuntella’s ability to create poetic prose (ex. “I’m happiest in the heady space where ‘No!’ and tears and degradation are the ultimate currency, where suffering is ugly and humiliation is the glue that holds he and I together, in the moment. That’s where I’m most at home, when fear drives arousal and mockery coats the words spilling forth from his mouth.”) I am often called by the siren’s song of style. CC’s blog is also new to me, and when, from one post, I am inspired to follow…I can confidently say that her words are worth reading.

That definitely “fond of games and amusement; light-hearted” kind of implies that playful is frivolous or silly but surely having fun particularly in the stressful world we live in is a really important thing to have in your life.  Are you a playful person? How does playfulness fit into your relationships/kink? Do you find being playful easy or is it something you have to make a conscious effort to be?

Or maybe you have a fiction story to tell inspired by the idea of being playful.
