“Some will crumple your words
Throw them into a bin
Others will sit with them
Until they really sink in”

Wow! I’m sitting here reading over the list below, and I’m simply amazed by how many of you participated in the prompts this month. As I said last month, I’ve decided to choose a favorite blog post for each month. I ended up jotting down about ten of them, all of which I really liked, so it was hard to choose. But after reading this one tonight, called, “A Piece of Silver Sage” by Cosistories, it left me with such a good feeling inside, that I decided to chose it as my favorite. So… well done Cosistories! Thanks to all of you for another great month! ~M xo

Congratulations to all of you who participated in the prompts for June. I thought I’d be able to participate myself, but life seemed to get the better of me. Here’s to hoping that July will inspire us all! Have a great month everyone! ~M xo

I can hardly believe it’s already June, where does the time go? This month I decided to get *my girls involved once again, and so many of these are ideas are taken from the minds of an 8 yr old and a 16 yr old. They always come up with some great prompts, and so I’m glad I asked them for their help.
If you’re new to the idea of writing with the help of prompts, here’s what I like to do with them…
To begin, settle into your favorite place in the house with a hot drink to warm your waking bones. Once you’ve warmed up a bit; grab your journal, a trusty pen, and a timer. Then, set your timer for ten minutes and begin writing about one of the prompts listed below. Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, neatness, or anything like that; just write! Write about anything and everything that comes to your mind, and don’t stop until the ten minutes are up.
I often find myself writing short stories or poems during those ten minutes, but you can write about anything you like. And don’t be alarmed if what you’ve written doesn’t quite make sense. The whole idea behind doing this exercise is to get your mind ready and working so that you can begin your day. Just think of it as exercise for your brain, and once you’ve done your ten minutes of writing, you’ll feel more prepared to tackle the rest of your day.
As always, I will be writing and posting over on my other blog, which can be found here. So please come visit me if you get a chance! 😉
Have a great month of writing everyone! ~M xo
