THE LITTLE PRINCE – WRITING PROMPT

“Once when I was six years old I saw a magnificent picture in a book, called True Stories from Nature, about the primeval forest. It was a picture of a boa constrictor in the act of swallowing an animal. Here is a copy of the drawing.”

FEAR

How helpless we feel

at times strangled by life.

We can break the bonds.

About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. I am a little puzzled, love the picture and the book . But is this your prompt so’ we ‘use your drawing mouse and all? Or are you answering a prompt but there is no link to one? It is early so I could be sleep fugged so forgive me if it is obvious. 😯😕

  2. Le Petit Prince is my favourite book of all …. I have copies in French and English on my bed-side table always and I encourage everyone to read it. It is a beautiful allegory. I will be interested to see what your readers come up with though I can’t quite bring myself to use this as a prompt – its so ingrained that I can recite it to you and Antoine St E’s words would surely should too loudly in my head. Bon courage à vos lécteurs!
