“A Writer’s Playground”–A place to find wordplay, writing, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart.”

“Just Jot It January #22–Fun Simplicity” by Linda Martin Andersen

I accepted a challenge for January: Just jot a note and submit.  I can’t participate every remaining day this month, but I will join in when I can.

I decided to create a theme to write about:  I chose “celebrate” which I combined with today’s prompt, “Fun Simplicity.”

Today, I Celebrate Fun Simplicity

Did you know that “fun” is a basic need?  It’s not just for kids.  Everybody needs it.  There are other basic needs of course, but this is definitely an important one.

If I get grumpy, a self-check often reminds me that it’s time for some fun.  Once an uncle of mine went to see a doctor about a rash on his hands.  The physician asked my uncle who had a stressful job what it was he wanted to do that he wasn’t doing.  My uncle said, “Deep sea fishing.”  After going fishing, his rash was gone.  Hmmm.

Writing Prompts:

  1. Name several things you call fun.  Tell more about something on your list.
  2. Why isn’t “fun” the same for everyone?
  3. What would you say in response to “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy?”
  4. What is your number one favorite way to have fun?
