Wednesday Writing Prompt 29 – Sing your song

Prompt

Your head is a living forest full of songbirds. —E. E. Cummings

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 . .  

(when you are done, feel free to share your work in the comments – or share on your own blog)

I'm a rock-n-roller poet who left the Big Apple for the Big Sky Desert where I've been letting it be and grooving with universal love, singing to the gods, dancing with the muses and bicycling with dreamtime messengers. I like altering my reality through imagination, movement, breath, and makin' stuff.

              1. Me too. When it happened the 1st time by accident… fancy fingers saving down the “Constructing the Center” watercolor series when I fancy-fingers slid across the keyboard to answer the phone… and when I turned back… W. T. F. ??? I don;t know what happened, though whatever it is…. CMD-Z to back it up. SHift-CMD-Z to bring it back. Doing it again to see the flash of the drop-down telling me… Invert? What’s that. Every time I do it it is no less mesmerizing than then. It just brings in this alternate universe nuclear glow like Celosia with sun on it, though with darks and and and. “Amazing results,” Yes! “On so many levels!” Yes!! Now, sometimes I do a piece, and then Invert it, and that’s where my launch point is. So many levels. It drops in a multi-dimensional connection to the original instantly, and with SO much substance from the sudden new place it arrives. I’ve not once felt it to be a gimmick. More the, “not yet. Keep working on the piece. Not ready for the 1st step of the work of Invert.”
