It’s the last day of June as I write this, meaning I won’t be able to respond to every “June Jour Challenge” prompt sent out by one of my WordPress peeps, The Finicky Cynic. That’s okay, though. I knew I wouldn’t respond to or even get to think about every prompt before the last of June. F.C. sent out quite a few “deep thought” prompts this June, meaning I’ll spend some extra time thinking about profound responses.
However, on this last day of June, with F.C. usually using her last “June Jour” prompt to solicit thoughts on her challenges, I don’t want to fail to highlight how inspiring and thought-provoking her prompts are. I’ve been working on a still-incomplete response about one of those deep topics; I won’t say which one, suffice it to say that it’s brought to the top of my mind one or two pivotal moments in my life that stayed in the far recesses of my mind… so much so that it led me to search for information on the person involved in that moment (no results came up, unfortunately).
One other thing I can’t fail to mention is that at least this year, F.C. didn’t just send out prompts. Rather, she provided further inspiration for them. I invite you to take a look at her “June Jour” prompts at this tag page on her site. And when you do, don’t just click on one link and add a comment or response. Hit the “previous post” link at the bottom, where this year she offered inspiration on the topics she invited her readers to respond to. Actually, even beyond June, her posts can provide a writing inspiration to those who can’t think of something to write, but these past 30 days they’ve served as real writing invitations.
So, please give F.C. some love and read her “June Jour” prompts. And while you’re at it, read the rest of her site as well; it’s awesome and inspiring (and awesomely inspiring) in June, July, or any other month.
