Get Your Write On

Let’s get this writing train rolling with some prompts. Prompts are a great way to loosen up your creativity. They’re stretches for your brain. With these or any prompts, try to break out of your comfort zone. Write in a genre you typically don’t or practice writing dialog, scenes with all five senses, etc.
The ivy vine creeps closer to my bedroom window. Day after day, closer.
Is it so hard to do what I’m asking of you? I mean, really, is it?
I’m not too sure about our new neighbors.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, “It’s just burgers and fries man.”
The mist rolled in early across the fields. In the murky gray I could hear a lonely frogs call.
Who do I need to impress? You? That’s laughable.
Would you participate in a naked bike ride? Why or why not?
When nothing but being Fabulous will do.
Where does your Boogie Man hide?
Panic set in when I realized the Tequila was all gone.
I think these ten prompts will do for now. Have a great week and happy writing

I remember my first … Journal Writing Exercise

I remember my first …

We have all had a life time full of firsts. The first time we rode a bike, first day of school, first trip to the coast, first date, first kiss, first job, and so forth. Our lives are full of experiences but there’s something about the first time you do something that really sticks with you. Think about a first that really stands out for you. Write everything you can remember about that first. Who was there, what you were feeling, the weather, events leading up to the first, etc. Don’t hold back. Let the experience of the first flow over and through you. Give every detail you can remember.

Are you interested in learning more about Journal Writing? Then check out my Journaling Guide and E-course. I take you through the process of establishing a positive journaling routine through daily e-mail course work. I would love to take you through the journaling journey. To find out more and to enroll.

Letter Writing Memoir Writing Exercise

Letter Writing Exercise to free the story within you.

Choose an event from your past. Write a letter to someone you know and tell them about the event. Address the letter Dear ____, then begin to tell your story. Consider the person you are addressing, and tell the story as you would tell it to them in person. Explain to them why it’s important to you that you’re telling them this story. This personalizes the story and makes it familiar to you and your reader.

Once you’ve written your letter sit back and take a deep breath. Let the breath out slowly. How do you feel about telling this story to this specific person? Did you let it all hang out or were you holding things back? Would you have told the story differently if it were someone else you were writing the letter to?

Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 12th. If you’re looking for a last minute gift, check out these fun gifts that any writer, or non-writer mom would love.

1.      Writer Mama – How to Raise a Writing Career Along Side Your Kids by Christina Katz This is a wonderful book with a ton of tips, strategies, etc. to balancing being a mom and a writer.

2.      Feather Pen Set – I received this gift for Christmas. It’s so much fun. I can’t believe people used to write this way. We’ve definitely gotten spoiled with our modern pens.

3.      Space Pen – Speaking of modern pens, the space pen is phenomenal. I’ve been using mine for years. You can use the pen anywhere and it has a smooth ink flow.

4.      Leather Journal – If your mom loves journaling or has been hinting that she may want to start, this leather journal would be a great gift. A companion gift for this journal would be my Journaling e-course, Laura K Marshall, just a suggestion.

5.      LED Pilot’s Pen – This pen has a light on its tip so you can see what you’re writing. No need to turn on any lights in the middle of the night when struck with genius.

6.      Rory’s Story Cubes – This is a fun game. Not only can you get tons of writing ideas from playing, but it’s fun to play with non-writers and your family.

And if all else fails, you can always get your mom an Amazon Gift Card.
