Daily Prompt: The Cat Says Meow

Write a story about yourself from the perspective of an object, thing, animal, or another person.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PERSPECTIVE.

Obviously, I’ve taken the prompt quite literally. The photo is of our family cat, Romeo. The screen adds a ghostly effect, yes?

      1. I was just talking last night about Shakespeare at the creative writing class I teach for a local junior college. We were discussing using figurative language properly, and I like using the example from Hamlet where Shakespeare actually mixes his imagery and does something no writer should ever do. It’s where Hamlet talks about taking up arms against a sea of trouble. It gives beginning writers hope to know that someone who was obviously as talented and acclaimed as Shakespeare could still do with some good editing now and then.


      2. I agree. I’ve taught English and writing of every kind for many years now, and I’ve said that to every class I’ve had. I’ve explained journalistic license, and then I’ve told them the following: you can break any grammar or writing rule you want if you believe you have a good reason to do it, but you have to be able to tell me what the rule is that you broke and then explain why you broke it and how breaking it makes your piece better. If I hadn’t done that, I would have had multiple students every year who just didn’t want to bother to learn to write well and used “journalistic license” as their cop out. My class this time around has a lot of natural talent, and they seem to be eager to learn all these finer points, so I think we’ll have a good time.
