Day 11 ~ Writing Challenge #wewrite

My heartbeat woke me up today! I could feel my heart beating in my ears this morning. I was being called to jump up. My dreams were dark, bloody, and filled with violence. Perhaps it’s because that is the world we live in, a world that can be violent and cruel. I have always found it so interesting how some people can just move on with their lives, how they can just get up without a care in the world, how some folks will just walk by the homeless on the street without even a glance–more annoyed that “they have to see this in NYC”? My heart was racing because it was a reminder that I am not safe. That very real threats surround me. I am reminded this morning that I am not even safe in my dreams. I am being reminded to care about not only what is happening in the world, but right here where I am!
So as I begin today, diving into my writing, sending out these fellowship applications, the prompts for today are about SAFETY! Think about the ways perhaps you are playing it safe in your writing, with your characters and subjects.


(1) I feel most safe when… (set timer for 10 minutes) if you get stuck begin the prompt again…GO!!!

(2) When (xxx’s) safety is threatened… (10 minutes) 

The intention for these prompts is to help you flush out your story and look for the scenes you might want to write. How does safety show up in your writing? In your stories?


Joining in on my writing challenge and writers commitment! Here are the TWO rules:

1. Check in for yesterday’s writing each day: How was yesterday? (post if you wrote, didn’t write, got stuck, need some support.)

Did you find it challenging to carve in the time to write? If we are honest with ourselves where could we have begun instead of doing…….. (Fill in the blank-leave your response in the comments).

Yesterday is done. We are not beating ourselves up. Today we get to begin again.


I AM committed to writing everyday!

I AM completely off FB or any form of social media until the days writing is done!

I WILL check in once a day everyday to share that I have met our goal!

If you are writing fiction or non-fiction, choose to write the prompt from whichever POV, or character you choose-i.e. 1st or third person.  


(1) I feel most safe when… (set timer for 10 minutes) if you get stuck begin the prompt again…GO!!!

(2) When (xxx’s) safety is threatened… (10 minutes) 

Check in later.

Happy writing!
