Jack Kerouac said, “Write in recollection and amazement of yourself.” This is a territory ripe for self reflection.
Let’s do this.
First, make a list of 5 times in your life when your actions surprised you.
Scan your list to consider and ultimately choose the one time that is the most appealing for you to write about today. Set your timer for five minutes and write, starting with the prompt, “I remember….”
Note: if that first attempt falls flat and your words don’t flow, try a different memory.
Oftentimes there is something in the way of writing from the first memory and the simple act of completing your writing from another memory will ignite writing flow for both.
Bonus: Share your writing experience with at least one other person today.
NOTE: if you would like to participate in a Writing Community, I would love to invite you to be a part of the Word-Love Writing Community I facilitate on Facebook.
