General, India, Writing Prompts

7x7x7x7 Writing Prompt

Challenging as it may be, this is one prompt that one would surely like to do, just for the thrill of it. This prompt has been done earlier by Corinne on her blog Everyday Gyaan and is now on Write Tribe too..

What is the 7x7x7x7 Writing Prompt?

  1. Grab the 7th book from your bookshelf.
  2. Open it up to page 7.
  3. Pinpoint the 7th sentence on the page.
  4. Begin a poem/a piece of prose that begins with that sentence
  5. Limit it in length to 7 lines/7 sentences.

So here goes….

Western society for the past 300 years has been caught up in a fire storm of change.

300 was a movie in which none of the characters ever changed.

Movies show us how to dream and how to live the dream.

Dreams are a window to our innermost hopes and desires.

I wish to fulfil my desire to learn swimming soon.

Swimming is one of the many sports included in the Olympics Games.

We all hope India makes it to the next Olympics Games.

India is my country, and even with all its drawbacks and corruption, I love it.

The book : Future Shock by Alvin Toffler. 😀

Wish I’d ran into a more interesting book with something better to start with. Not sure if I did it right. Braved it, and that’s enough for me! 😀
