Can You Nail Jelly to the Wall?


Composting Prompt Ingredients – Once a Week Prompt
Everyone loves a creative push, a gentle nudge, and what better to sate that passion than a writing prompt? Something to stir the imagination, or to inspire the mind, tickle the fancy, provide a bit of a distraction, and maybe provide some entertainment along the way too?

But why, Composting’ Prompt’ Ingredients? What’s that all about then? The secret to a great ‘compost’ heap is the ingredients. It’s a bit like a dash of this, a splash of that and a few drops of something else, as a witch might say when stirring up a cauldron concoction.

Composting isn’t rocket science but gentle crafting and building your skills up, and eventually, you’ll find a balance that is right for you in your quest for gardener’s gold! Composting is all about knowing what you can add and the right ingredients.

So if we were to say ‘composting prompt ingredients’, that is all about seeing what works with writing. Therefore, your ingredients might be prompt, inspiration, creativity, imagination, opinion, suggestion, provocation, controversy, moments, chance encounters, experiences, uniqueness, personality, individuality, perspective, reading, etc.

Here it’s a case of teasing your curiosity out with a few choice distractions, and all the Earthly Comfort prompts are designed to allow your interpretation to create for you, allowing your mind to run wild. Be they questions to make you think or puzzles to make you wonder, or snippets of wordery to bring out your artisan crafts to bump and grind their way along with the keyboard – it’s all up to you and how you decide to express yourself and above all, it’s about having some fun!.


So, should you wish, please feel free to drop a comment below, or if teased and tempted enough, then create your post and please remember to link your blog to mine with a pingback; otherwise, I’ll never see your response.

  1. What’s the difference between jelly and jelly fish?
    I eat Jelly… I do not eat any kinda fish ✌️

    If you had the opportunity to travel back to a specific period in your life and alter it slightly or significantly – what age would you return to, what would you do, and why would you choose to relive it and if you wouldn’t, why not?
    Ohhh deep one lol … hmm 2nd grade – 7 years old … so I could live the rest all over again being WAY smarter lol

    What topics can you not write about with conviction? Domestic violence – my words to government and people would be too harsh for me to speak with conviction

    What does the phrase ‘make from scratch’ mean, and who or what does the scratch refer to?
    Starting with simple fresh new things to create something else

    What is the weirdest question you have ever asked or wanted to ask someone but haven’t had the opportunity?
    Umm 🤔 I mostly ask if I am curious, but what is weirdest thing? Umm 🤔 well I live in America – AND I have unique job so nothing is really weird at this point 🤷‍♀️

    What makes for a good life and what would make your life good today?
    A good life would be to be happy and safe with passion for life.
    My life is good today – but to be better? Hmm? Maybe no bad things for awhile 🙏🙏 that would be good!

    Are you easily distracted or do you have focused concentration?
    Hahaha … I have a million and one things come at me daily all at once … so VERY easily distracted. Try to be focused on one thing in my job 😄😄 yeah right … and in my personal life … yes I can be distracted if you catch my attention and know how to do that lol … but I do have serious focus in myself too… I am very loyal to people or brands or things – depends on the distraction you speak of 😉

    What distracts you or what keeps your mind piqued all the time?
    Hahaha whatever I am facing at that moment lol 🤷‍♀️

    What was the last thing that blew you away in a good way? [Interpret as wish] hmm… well I always love the beauty of nature and that always blows me away – the peace and deep breaths you can take with how beautiful is – so recently I have that

    When was the last time you did something totally outrageous or ridiculous?
    Well that depends because I don’t consider anything I do outrageous or ridiculous… I’m typically pretty chill person. Although do have wild life streak ✌️ I tease that I gonna walk down street topless because I can do that and not be arrested – technically according to way law reads… is areola showing – but I don’t have that so I’m good 👏 I just tease that I would – but I would never lol – I do NOT want that kinda attention! lol … I just like having the ability if I wanted it – so do thoughts count? Lol

    Describe your blog’s personality in only three words?
    Own personal words

    Bonus Question

    1. Hey Trisha, you have some great answers here. The 2nd grade is a thought provoking one indeed. The question was something l thought about and was thinking about, then l saw a film recently called About Time and l thought mm. Where would l go?

      1. Yes, because second grade my entire family was intact and ok ❤️ I always cherished them – always… but I would hug little harder, cherish moments more like was last – I was young…

        And I would watch my mother closer – and my sister

        Since we move a lot – my focus was always being new girl and trying to fit in – is why socially I do pretty well

        I think I would ignore all that this time and just focus school only

        And no way I would have even met Satan or given time of day

        … but then, would I have all my people? It be different

        So would you erase what have now to create completely different by changing time? A do over?

        Would you?

      2. It’s a difficult question because, sadly, we can’t erase one thing without there being a knock-on effect. If we went back and were to alter one ‘small thing alone, would that be enough to change the course of our history by a few steps or miles to the point of non-recognition?

        If we went back and changed something significant, we would have to accept that the life of hardships, joys and experiences we have lived along the way would be gone. If we assumed that – then fine – whatever we faced would have to be faced afresh.

        But would it make the difference if we went back with the knowledge of now and knowing that we were explicitly altering our forward history and acknowledging the impact that marginal corrections could make to the life we know today?

        It isn’t an easy question. But l think my answer would be no. Whilst my life [like yours] hasn’t been perfect. We have learned things we couldn’t know without the hurdles we have jumped.

        The best we can do is learn from our mistakes today and be thankful for what we do have 🙂
