(Sorta) Daily Writing Prompt

I’d like to propose a daily writing prompt challenge. The original post is here . The prompts come from a book titled More Daily Wisdom: 365 Buddhist Inspirations . It consists of daily quotes from various Buddhist writings intended to inspire, to get the reader to think or feel. I wish to express this reaction in writing and hope to motivate others to do so also.

.If you’d like to participate, please tag your posts

The prompt for today, April 28, is:

It is always easier to be right than helpful.

Oh, yes. This brings to mind the incredibly annoying: “Told you so.” Why people bother taking satisfaction in muttering those words rather than trying to rectify a situation, I don’t know. Or if nothing can be done, why it to digging into the skin of someone else matters, again, who knows? But I guess it is easier.

Great prompt idea. This is sort of like a book of devotionals.

I like the idea. Maybe I will give it a try. Right now I am on vacation, chasing 5 grandkids seems to eat up my time. : -)

Well, enjoy your vacation, ChickJ ! I know you're usually busy from sunup to sundown.
