Happy Wednesday! Today the Inspired Prompt welcomes author and story teller, Donna Schlachter. We’re so happy you could join us. First question:
Can you describe yourself in three words?
Donna: Analytical. Justice-oriented. Child of the Living God.
A mind for details makes a great writer. Now about travel…
Someone offers you a fully-paid writing research trip to any place you desire to go. Where would it be and why?
Donna: England. For the history. And it needs to be at least a month long. Maybe two. No, six. Six months in England, to tour old castles, ghost towns, and cemeteries. Yes, cemeteries. I love dreaming up stories to go along with inscriptions such as “Mother of 10”, “Love of my life”, and “Infant daughter of J.C. and E.M. Clements”.
What a interesting answer! Last question:
If someone made a movie of your life, what would be the theme song?
Donna: I had no idea, so I went online and did a crazy quiz. Answered 7 seemingly unrelated questions, and presto! The answer: Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams. Apparently, I wish it were still the good, old days. They say I’m not much for change, which is true. As for the rest of their conclusions, don’t know that I agree, but then again, they came up with the theme song when I couldn’t.

Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams
You wish it were still the good old days. You are not much one for change, because it never seems to work out for you. You love to look back and reminiscence on all the great times you have had. Your friends are faithful and pals you have had for most of your life. You have their backs, and they have yours. Life is pretty much the way you like it, so you see no reason to change it. Things are just better when you let everything unfold the way it should. Who knew the story of your life would be the worst export Canada ever sent to the USA?
Change is a struggle for me too… why mess with a good thing?! Thanks so much for dropping by!
