    When you take something for granted, it means that you're used to having that something and expect that something to always be there, always available for you. You don't feel thankful for it as you only think it natural to have that something around.

    For example, someone who was born into a wealthy family may take her riches for granted. Because she's never tasted poverty, she may expect to be wealthy for her life. She may feel that it's only natural for her to be rich and that there's nothing unusual about it. She may not know how it feels to have to break one's back working just to have breadcrumbs and can't even imagine such a condition happening to her.

    This theme is centred on the idea of feeling grateful for everything you have, as what you've naturally had even from birth may be something others have to struggle very hard to obtain.

    I remembered my "Golden Idea" after staying in the shower for a couple of hours per day. It wasn't that Golden

    That's quite alright. As most financial analysts will tell you, an idea only plays a partial role in determining whether or not you'll succeed; the execution is where it matters. I'd argue that it also applies to writing (and virtually everything else).

    Do you have a typical idea that you're thinking of turning into an atypical piece? Maybe we can help, like with suggestions and such? (Of course, it's fine if you'd rather keep it a secret until you post your entry yourself.)

    I see. Not sure I'd be able to help with that, since, well, humour has to come naturally. Besides, I reside in the realm of blood and tears, not laughs. Nonetheless, good luck to you and looking forward to your entry.

    I'm fit for it since I am pretty sure I have ADD and it leads to a lot of stupid stuff. Whether it is a good one or not is up to the future

    Oh, sorry to hear that. But, hey, if that makes you able to crack jokes easily, I'd say that fits pretty well with the theme, as there's always the good to be had within the bad

    Mine became more of a Infomercial than a short story. Maybe, I have a talent for making really bad informercial. Well, I guess I'll skip on making 3D Landscapes
