Writing Prompt Wednesdays
Finding my voice saved my life. Decades ago, I transformed my relationship to power through writing. I found a way to articulate what wanted to surface. Through my expression I established strength, grounding, and connectedness in my body/mind and with others.
Writing is a versatile activity and can be done anywhere. It doesn’t require elaborate equipment. Writing is cool.
I used to be shy, but I love people. My solution? I’ve been known to show up at parties with my notebook. If dancing or music wasn’t happening, then writing happened. And inevitably, fascinating conversation happened – usually with other writers, songwriters, and/or artists.
Writing, can be an icebreaker without the awkward small talk!
All you need to do is have pen and paper and keep your hand moving!
Every Wednesday, I post a prompt, usually a quote, as a springboard for stream-of-consciousness writing. Check out the prompts here.
The next time you reach for your phone, I challenge you to instead, reach for a pen, grab a prompt, and get writing. If you want to go a step further, share your writing in the comments, or start your own blog!
Publications include Elephant Journal, Bentlily.com, the Telepoem Booth, Cosmopolitan Magazine and various journals. Most published work is creative non-fiction, short short stories, and poetry.
