Welcome to [community profile] daily_prompt!

Once a day (give or take), I'll be posting a prompt. That prompt may be a word, a song, a picture, whatever. After that, it's up to YOU to figure out what you'll do with it. Whether you feel inspired to write 5 words or 500...whether you decide to write original fiction, fanfiction, poetry, or song lyrics is up to you! Essentially, Daily Prompt is your community! I'm just giving you that extra kick-in-the-pants that a lot of us authors need to get to a running start.

All I ask in terms of rules is to use your own discretion when replying to a prompt. Daily Prompt is a Rated M (mature, not adult) community, so explicit adult content should be placed in your own personal journals. Other than that, rules belong elsewhere.

Have a suggestion for future prompts? Please, leave a comment on this post and who knows? Your suggestions might become a prompt for Daily Prompt! This Mod loves all the suggestions she can get.

Have fun!

Oh the river, oh the river, it's running free
And oh the joy, oh the joy it brings to me
But I know it'll have to drown me
Before it can breathe easy

And I've seen it in the flights of birds
I've seen it in you the entrails of the animals
The blood running through, but in order to get to the heart
I think sometimes you'll have to cut through, but you can't

-Heartlines; Florence and the Machine

Okay party people in the house...

With his partner, the grand wizard mc, ricky d
D, and that’s me in the place to be.
We goin’ to do it for ’85, kick it live, allright?
Cuz you know, you’re all sick of all these crap rappers
Biting their rhymes because of they’re back steppers.
But when it comes to me and my man doug fresh here,
There is no competition ’cause we are the best, yeah.

And yeah, we realize that we are on the move,
So listen closely so y’all don’t miss
As we go a little something like this, hit it!

Met you in front of a diner and you had blue hair
You were so nice
You were from L.A. but you were all there
You were alright

So many people say that they have it together
But I think you're a nice guy
And I think we could be birds of a feather

I know you eat your lovers when you sense that something isn't right
I hope that's over and you're letting him go
I always wondered what your gypsy heart would feel like
I got a feeling that you're letting me know
I told your sister that you're all I ever dream of
Your sister told me that I better move slow
And then she told me things I never could've dreamed of
And then she told me things I should not have known

Rain comes down like it always does
This time, I've got seeds on ground

-Seeds; TV on the Radio

"Gee, I don't know. Maybe deep down I'm afraid of any apex predator that lived through the K-T extinction. Physically unchanged for a hundred million years, because it's the perfect killing machine. A half ton of cold-blooded fury, the bite force of 20,000 Newtons, and stomach acid so strong it can dissolve bones and hoofs." -Archer
