Writing Prompt 43 – when the chips are down . . .

“Humans must become cyborgs to remain relevant.” – Elon Musk

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 . .

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. This one will Be short.

    “No, thank you, Elon Musk. That is a convenient crowd control fantasy, like a new sci-fi ecclesiastical crowd control church you can data mine rather than passing around the offering plate. I prefer the continual enactment ‘cyborg’ of the Self continually plugging myself more and more into me for increased balance of internal scale and power as 3500 sq meters of intricate internal tiles are discovered and then care and attention is taken to dusting them off one by one over a lifetime. Power? Yes, patience is focused power, a living pond with a water top like glass… where even the slightest ripple of another’s words is not only heard but as well felt… deeply.”

    Excellent. Thanks Holly!
