Musings - Mama Kat's Writing Workshop (23rd February 2012)

"I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat."
Edgar Allan Poe

I wish I could… Boy what a can of worms Mama Kat's writing prompt has opened up.

In fact, the worms are Anacondas! Big fanciful glittering giant wrigglers of all things that I can’t but wanna. At first I figured, hey be sensible for once and pick something heartfelt and deep… then I remembered who I am and when ‘squeeze Hugh Jackman’s bottom’ was the first thing that came to mind I realised I had a loooong list.

So for this prompt I grabbed my notepad, took out my phone and set a timer for ten minutes. Then I got myself ready, got myself set and here is what ‘I wish I could…’

  •  Squeeze Hugh Jackman's bottom
  • Win enough money to get out of debt
  • Trade my legs for Uma Thurman's
  • Write at work as all the distractions seem to help me focus
  • Bake a cake that actually rises!
  • Rewrite myself into the film 'White Fang' as Ethan's little lady
  • Speak another language fluently
  • Bend it like Beckham...
  • Ballroom dance if only for the shoes
  • Meet Richard of Boehmcke's Human Condition
  • Convince who ever it takes to make a Moonlight Season 2
  • Time travel with the ability to undo any changes I make if I don't like them
  • Have more hours in the day
  • Finish my writing ideas before moving onto the next one
  • Have the courage to try again!!!
And ten minutes ran out with the realisation that being a Mother has not made me any saner! :)

So come on, join in and tell me what YOU wish you could... :)


  1. Very nice and interesting list. You make me wonder what you would like to have the courage for to try again..

    Yvonne, the Netherlands
