I am probably aging myself by asking this question but here goes…do any of you remember the song Everybody Wants To Rule The World? You can click the link if you want to see a very ancient music video: ▶ Tears for Fears Everybody Wants to Rule the World – Video Dailymotion.

Well your writing prompt today may take you places you never imagined you would go. Or perhaps you have imagined it, as a child. Well, the fact is in our flesh we all want to rule the world. Or at least our own little world, yes? It is the nature of the beast, our human default. I want control, you want control and BAM- that’s the way the world goes round. Sorta…

Today you get to have a pass. Like a Pass-Go on the Monopoly Board. You get to rule the world. No you can’t exactly be God, Eve already tried that and we know where that story goes. However for your writing journey today, collect your 200 dollars and circle the board as you like, you have a get out of jail free card and the sky is the limit…

If I were Ruler of the Free World…


1. If I were Queen for a Day…

2. If I had Superpowers they would be…

3. Princess or Villainess

I feel a bit… Muahahahaha. Now, write, write, write! GO! Take the prompts wherever they lead, just be back by dawn! Snort.

  1. I don’t remember the song — but it dates me not you! I was too busy raising my kids, the older ones might remember it though. 🙂 Now give me a song from 66 instead of 86 ( I had to look that up) and I’ll probably remember that!
    I’m enjoying your prompts & kind of keeping up in a haphazard sort of way. Sometimes in my journal, and sometimes in a word document. I’ve even thought about putting it on my blog. I really like that I can sort my thoughts and rearrange them as I go when I do it digitally. Is the art of handwriting going down the tubes in this computer age?
