Many of us hold on to things that aren’t healthy for us because the fear of what will happen if we let them go paralyzes us.
What do you need to let go of? A bad habit? An unrealistic ideal? A stressful situation? An unhealthy relationship? What would be the worst thing that would happen and what would be the best? Reflect and write!
“The secret to being a writer is that you have to write. It’s not enough to think about writing or to study literature or plan a future life as an author. You really have to lock yourself away, alone, and get to work.”
~ Augusten Burroughs
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. “
~ Author Unknown
What was a poignant moment in your life, a moment that redefined what happiness meant to you? Was it the birth of a child, meeting the love of your life, or realizing that you’ve reached a goal?
Reflect and write!
“No one says a novel has to be one thing. It can be anything it wants to be, a vaudeville show, the six o’clock news, the mumblings of wild men saddled by demons.”
“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” ~ W.B. Yeats
One morning you awaken to find you have miraculously been given one magical power. What will it be? How will you use it? Are you able to see through walls? Can you make things materialize just by wishing for them?
Write about your first day with this new magical power. Describe how you discovered you had it. Will you use it for good or evil?
Get creative and have fun!
