Wednesday Writing Prompt 32 – We Could be Heroes


“The world is full of people who have stopped listening to themselves.” ~ Joseph Campbell

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. One of my fave series. I remember feeling like a King when I purchased the VHS 6-volume set and listened to it in THX — LOL start to finish. So much wonderful depth in the history and myth and the alchemy of Bill Moyers and Joseph Campbell and chthonic depths and numinous heights and life right here present the whole time.

    Excellent Writer’s Prompt.
