Word Press Daily Prompt no word, word.

Word Press Daily Prompt no word, word.

Well, here I am writing my daily word press blog as usual, except I have no idea if anyone will see this since the sad demise of the Word Press Daily Prompt, I feel rather like a voice crying in the wilderness, having no idea if my voice is even heard.
This is much harder than I imagined it was going to be, for I have no word and it seems quite hard to write a blog about nothing, perhaps I should imagine myself as a politician as they seem to have the ability to spout on for ages and say nothing.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who wants to call out, “is there anybody out there, can you hear me Major Tom?”
I have been so shaken up by the disappearance of the Daily Prompt that I am literally lost for words and have been forced to fall back on the excellent words of Mr David Bowie.
Until next time!

“Space Oddity”

Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills
and put your helmet on

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown,
engines on
Check ignition
and may God’s love be with you

[spoken]
Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Liftoff

This is Ground Control
to Major Tom
You’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule
if you dare

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating
in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do

Though I’m past
one hundred thousand miles
I’m feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much
she knows

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit’s dead,
there’s something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you….

Here am I floating
round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do.

About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother who had dementia, hence the lack of acting work but shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.

    There are many people who have taken up where The Daily Post left us. I have a “3 Things Challenge” on my blog, Fandango has a one-word prompt on his site (http://fivedotoh.com/2018/06/01/fowc-with-fandango-inertia/), there is the Ragtag Daily Prompt (https://curioussteph.com/ragtag-daily-prompt/) and Thriving Not Surviving has a daily prompt on their site (https://gratefulsinglemoms.com/2018/06/01/flabbergasted/). What is missing right now, is the sense of community that The Daily Post had, but in the long run, having more people running daily prompts, means we can actually just as many people as before–and probably more. Hope this helps 🙂

    I know that some bloggers took the matter into their own hands and there a few daily prompts going around. I feel the same way, lost and drowned, hopefully will find other ways to connect 🙂

  3. I’m with ya on the Daily Prompt. I can’t understand why they took a whole community away. It was easy to go there and read mutual blogs all in one place and a great go-to. What I have done is “follow” people so I can go back and read those. Since I have two blogs, we will see how that goes. In any case, I will be back 🙂
