Daily Prompt: In Loving Memory – RIP Daily Prompt

Write your obituary. 

Romford Cemetery

I beg your pardon. First of all WordPress kills the daily prompt with the eternal rehash from two years ago and only keep it fresh for the newbies. The long suffering daily prompters are cast on one side and now I should write my obituary. We all died at the beginning of 2015 when WordPress decided to kill us with boredom and repetitions. If you cannot think of anything new, neither can I. It is not my job. I am the one writing to keep this dying WordPress daily prompt site alive.

As the first sparse crocus appear in my lawn after the Winter snow, so are the prompts. Uninteresting, few and far between, nothing new and actually long dead. I would say if you want to stop these daily prompts, that is OK, then admit it and tell us all about it. If you are too lazy and fed up with the work involved, then just say go away and do not bother. You do not need us and we do not need you. Yes I am angry, fed up and will be glad to move on. The only reason I am still here is because I have made some good friends and do not want to lose the contact.

I am not going to write my obituary, for the plain reasons that I have done it before and I am still alive. Perhaps not in this particular prompt, but in a few others which eternally repeat themselves. Today is a short prompt from me, I have better things to write and do.

In other words, Rest in Peace Daily Prompt, I will return, will tag my contributions with “Daily Prompt” to get them in the grid, but your themes and subjects have long died. May they rest in peace until someone somewhere in the realm of WordPress might decide to involve some thought on those of us that spend time writing and like to have fun and enjoyment. I probably have to wear black now when I am writing to get in the mood.

  1. I was going to write a post about the daily prompts’ current situation and how it’s not what I enjoyed in the past.
    But I figured they probably have tons of complaints, and mine would do nothing but add to my list of negativity.
    (Although most of my negativity is for humor purposes) But you sum up some of my feelings quite well.
    I hope they can go back to how it used to be.
    Surely someone is sending them new ideas. 🙂

  3. I was hoping this wasn’t so. We “grew” up on the Daily Prompt. Now it feels like we are in a poorly run home for the prosaically challenged. Ugh. I know we’ve complained. I know someone has heard our pleading… (I won’t compare this in any way to religion, I promise.)

    Ugh. Ugh. Ugh.
