Writing Prompt 158 – and so it is


“It’s supposed to be great living. It’s supposed to be fantastic.” – David Lynch

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. I just watched the documentary on him, “The Art Life” from Netflix. He’s really an interesting person and a shining example of creativity personified. Excellent quote to work from… 💀


  2. I love this quote and this practice! Thank You , David Lynch and the TM experience or rather the TM inspirience are an everyday intention . I’m trying to get my Qi Gong and TM in everyday. Writing and feeling the promt to write is natural , it isn’t always there but when it visits, let it in for tea and lunch. These prompts are essential. Good work Holly Racoon. TJK
