Thoughts and Perspectives From the Mind of a Common Girl

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

Every morning my girls and I come up with a new writing prompt, and then we proceed to write together for 10 minutes. Brianna is my 16 yr old and Autumn is my 9 yr old. Here’s our conversation from a few days ago…
Me – “How about we do the prompt, Aspirations of Autumn?”
Brianna – “Mom… that’s so one dimensional since we already know exactly what Autumn will do when she grows up.”
Me – “🙄😳🤐”
