Retrospective

Retrospective about Daily Post prompts….

It has been a while when I stumbled upon this page. It is amazing how one word, one prompt can bring up so many ideas, thoughts, invite memories or dreams to come out and become some kind of writing adventure. Along all these prompts, for which I was only sorry that my current lifestyle did’t allow me to follow every single day, I have had a help of friends that tried to write their own stories. So, I admit that this is not all made by me, but from several of us.

Still, when travelling, running and positive motivation have been published it was mainly mine. We will all try to continue finding new inspiration in everyday life. Who knows, maybe some other daily prompts waits in front of us.

I feel as at the end of the school. You did all, sometimes perfect, sometimes less perfect, but you did it and at the end you can say that you have finished that school. This is similar with this adventure with Daily Prompts, we participated in some, we made really great texts but sometimes we missed several of them.

In the end, the result is a great number of wonderful posts from all of us that tried to inspired others and of course… be inspired by others. I liked reading other people’s posts about the same word. I was always curious to see where will they go with their thoughts, ideas, dreams, stories.

Now, we should all continue writing. If possible, every single day and who knows maybe we will again stumble on each other in some other series of daily prompts and share our visions, dreams, memories and whatever cross our writer’s mind.

I wish you all good luck in life and writing and thank you for reading my posts inspired by Daily Prompts. It was really a special adventure for all of us.

Mnemonic

The word “mnemonic” is derived from the Ancient Greek word μνημονικός (mnēmonikos), meaning “of memory, or relating to memory”[2] and is related to Mnemosyne (“remembrance”), the name of the goddess of memory in Greek mythology. Both of these words are derived from μνήμη (mnēmē), “remembrance, memory”.[3] Mnemonics in antiquity were most often considered in the context of what is today known as the art of memory.

Ancient Greeks and Romans distinguished between two types of memory: the “natural” memory and the “artificial” memory. The former is inborn, and is the one that everyone uses instinctively. The latter in contrast has to be trained and developed through the learning and practice of a variety of mnemonic techniques. Source: Wikipedia
