Day 20: Writing Challenge ~ #wewrite

Freedom.  What does it means to be free?

There are things that have a hold on us. There are things we won’t let go of. This idea of freedom is really sitting with me today. I’m thinking about my characters and their journey and what it might look like for each individual on their path towards freedom.  This writing challenge while it’s purpose is on developing characters and our stories… any great novel worth reading tackles very real themes and human issues. We should really be looking at the things that are important to us or why write at all?

Writing prompts:

(1) The journey to freedom… (15 minutes)

(2) The thing about freedom… (15 minutes)

Set your timer for the time allotted. Do not lift the pen off of the page. Do not over think. Do not censor or self edit. You are writing from a stream of consciousness. Trust what wants to be written. If you get stuck begin the prompt again… GO!!!

 There are things we fear as writers. Certain truths we rather keep hidden. Let’s go there!

The intention for these prompts is to help you flush out your story and look for the scenes you might want to write. Whether we are writing fiction or non-fiction there are moments (the great stories do this well) where we are called to feel things. Allow us to feel everything. Allow us to see everything. Bring us into this world. 

BEGIN!

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

1. Check in for yesterdays 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.

2. WRITING COMMITMENT:

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.  Writing prompts:

(1) The journey to freedom… (15 minutes)

(2) The thing about freedom… (15 minutes)

Check in later.

Happy writing!
