More Motivating Prompts Please
Dear Gentle Beings of all persuasions,

I am after some more motivating prompts from you to get me moving on the things I want to and think I should get done in my writing sphere of activities.

Spring is springing over here and we have one month left before summer. Jacarandas, hippeastrums, blackberries and passion fruit are all flowering. Birds are nesting - not in my roof this year as far as I can tell - and at least one bandicoot is madly digging up everything....

I am also trying to help the Offspring with his job search.

My work place is being partly reorganised and we are expressing doubts...politics are afoot. I don't know if it will end particularly well, but enough of that.

If you would like to help me work on my to-do list, and give me a prompt as well, please give me a whole number from one to twelve inclusive and a short prompt tag you would like written to. I will write 150 words/spend 15 minutes on the list item, and then write you 200-250 words to your prompt.

There are some rules.

* Please don't ask for main story Nai as your prompt - more Nai writing will happen next weekend;

* One prompt per prompter; and

* No erotica (I need to be in the mood) and no fanfic (I would mangle your favourite characters to no satisfactory result.)

Thank you for your help.

How about 6?

As for the prompt, there is the gardener's eternal engagement (I *won't say "struggle" -- it's part of nature, after all!) with local critters that sample the vegetation. But I believe some of your characters are cultivating interesting plants, aren't they?

6 is Project B which now has named main characters and their family relationship to each other established.

What sort of plants?

I was thinking of the sort that one might grow to make use of a specific property, such as a medicinal plant. Some type of critter might take a liking to it, whether for the reason it was being grown, or just because they thought it tasted good. How does the property for which it was cultivated affect the critters? How would the gardener deal with the outcome?

I'm hoping to keep enough scope here for your creativity. I'm interested in seeing what it can do.

I was wondering if there was a particular story you were thinking of that I'd forgotten. I shall sleep on it.
