Blogging University – Writing Everyday Inspiration – Let the Scene Write Itself


Day 10 – Writing Everyday Inspiration – Let the Scene write itself.

So far, we’ve found inspiration from our own experiences, images, words, and more. Today, let’s quietly observe the world around us and write about what we see.

Find a spot where you can sit and observe for at least 20 minutes: a bench at a park, shopping mall, or museum; from inside your car in a parking lot; or even a place close to home, like your front porch. Ideally, it’s a location where you can watch action and interaction unfold (whether it involves people, wildlife, the weather, etc.).

I’m writing this sitting at my Mac computer, in my house in Waitara NZ, it is thundering and skies are dark.

From my computer desk, I can see out of two windows, it is now 2.30pm Friday afternoon, and it’s just started raining.

Out the left-hand side window,  I just saw a guy walk past the gate with his dog, no raincoat or umbrella, I bet when he gets home he will be having a shower, maybe he should have brought the soap with him.

I smile as I was thinking about the situation, I can just see the soap bubbles floating off in the wind from his hair.

School, will be finishing for the weekend at 3pm, there will be kids running in every direction, hope the drivers watch for the ones that scurry across the road without looking in the rain.

Out the right-hand window, there are homes, everyone has brought their washing in, we had plenty of warning about the wet weather coming in.

There is five house build around our place, on our side of the road and much more homes across the road, it is a big change after living in the country, with neighbors a couple of km’s away from our home.

In another hour, my husband and I will be going into town to pick up his pills from the chemist, hope it stops raining.

I can hear a plane going overhead to land at the New Plymouth Airport in BellBlock which it right beside Waitara in Taranaki.

We have been downtown it was still raining very hard, time now 4.45 pm.

If you have been reading my blog, one post I wrote about my Cellphone, well I still haven’t learned how to use it properly. I have finally got it loaded up from my cell phone.

Heavy Rain in Waitara

I took a photo through the window screen in the car right in the middle of Waitara’s main street to show you how heavy it was raining.

It turned out quite good for me, only one problem I have no idea how to add it to this post.

Any help would be appreciated.



  1. Thanks for replying. My phone is a Samsung Galaxy 5. Not sure about the WordPress App, but I could have, I can read my blog on it, just checked and I can read your comment, so would you say I have got the app?

  2. Make sure you’re using it from the app and not just the internet on your phone. You can also just email the picture to yourself and get it from your computer if you’re more comfortable with the computer than your phone.

  3. I usually upload photos from my phone to OneDrive or Google Drive and then pick them up on my computer to put into posts. I have an S6 which is virtually identical to the S5. You can plug it into the computer as well via USB to transfer files.
    I have the WordPress app on my phone but I’ve never used it to post. I find mobile phones quite fiddly for that sort of thing!

    • Thank you so much, you have been very helpful. I haven’t been successful yet in getting any photo from a cell phone onto the internet, I was thinking of Google, all very interesting information for those that know what to do it is so simple, but when you are learning it isn’t easy.
      I won’t give in I will get that photo sorted out yet.
      Have a nice weekend.


  4. Nice post and view. I have used app on Galaxy3 and galaxy7 it’s really nice. It didn’t always work just like on the home computer. But it’s the way I publish most of my posts.


  5. I love the abstract qualities of your rainy day through the windshield of your car. It looks like it was raining something fierce, for sure. I’m glad you were able to get it added to your post.

    I enjoyed reading the story of your day. This was a great prompt. Once things slow down around here, maybe I’ll be able to check out that Blogging University, too.

    Have a blessed day, Elsie. 🙂
