Writing prompt 35 – in what ways do you hide?


“Your silence will not protect you.” – Audre Lorde

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)

  1. I love a journal prompt. It took me a bit to narrow down on my answer. I realized that I may take a somewhat neutral position in my writing at times, but my focus is on being a yogini and a cowgirl and not politics. This does not mean I do not have strong convictions nor does it mean that I am not using my words to foster the changes I want to see in the world. Somethings will land with who needs to read my words. Sharing a truth is a way of helping myself and others deal and/or heal.
