Wednesday Writing Prompt 23 – soft heart


“The secret title of all good poems could be ‘Tenderness.'” ~ Galway Kinnell

On Writing

Breathe the sentence in. Exhale the sentence. Inhale and exhale each word. Now inhale and exhale the sentence. Then, go!

There is only one rule, keep your hand moving.

Don’t worry about grammar, spelling, or punctuation. If you feel stuck, keep writing anyway. Try going back to the prompt and write it out until other words arise, then write those—or, repeat the last word you wrote again and again until new words appear—or, write, “I am stuck,” or “I can’t think of anything,” as long as you keep your hand moving. Writing is physical, the words will move through your body and come out of your hand—just keep it moving.

Now go – for five, ten, fifteen minutes . .

  1. Lol. I was gearing through 4th to 5th to 6th gear on a project I pulled in after releasing “Prescient Remembrance” and BAM and Wednesday and THIS came. I have to say I wasn’t double-clutching to kick the G-forces of acceleration into play, and then… I WAS… because of THIS prompt catalyze game into what I already had momentum with… 7th Gear and another G or two into the Recaro anyone?!! Excellent stuff.

    This was a beautiful NOS kick in the a** to amplify the momentum of what I was already doing. Tenderness?… Strong enough to be gentle… Everyone including me will have to wait to Saturday-ish… though know you mid-air refueled me with Some high octane good stuff with this…

    Thank you.

    1. How wonderful! YES! I’m so glad.

      It’s Friday morning – I feel like some tension in the air has released – we shall see. Lunar eclipse on it’s way, gotta make the time to breathe and for tenderness.
