“There is no effort without error… and if she fails… at least she fails daring…”
So who told you it would be easy? I don’t know about you but these prompts are kicking my ass. That’s the thing about what life brings us. Sometimes we believe that life should be easy or things should be handed to us. I know for me I have believed that for all of my hard work I am DUE something… but the thing is… we are called to keep working hard. And the working hard doesn’t have to be painful or ugly. My go to for examples of hard work are athletes, those who spend years preparing for the olympics or the players presently at FIFA. Getting THERE is not easy… its HARD work. Its dedication. Its commitment. Its endurance. Its perseverance. Its failing and MOVING forward anyway.
And creativity is HARD work! Writing is work! Developing stories and creating worlds is work! Following our dreams is work! Pursuing our passion is work! Albeit for some us its work we love, and a job we would never give up… it is still work.
And so today lets work!
Take a deep breath… sit somewhere comfortable… don’t think about it… allow what comes up to guide you. We will start with a warm-up, set your timer for 3 minutes:
Warm-up prompt 3 minutes: WHAT I WANT TODAY… (BEGIN!)
Deep breath– release…
Day 7 prompt: SHE/HE NOTICED THAT… (Set timer for 10 minutes–BEGIN!)
He/she noticed that…
How did that feel? Tell me about the process…
There is no right or wrong way to do the prompts. They can be written in the form of prose or poetry, 1st person or 3rd, in the voice of your main character or villain… the point is to write… to keep writing… to stay with me and not give up.
I look forward to reading your responses.
