First Writing Prompt comes from a writing group I have been part of for a while.
This exercise was kindly shared by my friend Louise and it goes like this:
Write six sentences, each one starting with “I AM…”. In the first one you will be an ANIMAL, then a PLANT, then a GARMENT, then a SENSATION, then a PLACE, finally a TIME.
Write quickly and don’t over think it. This exercise shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes.
I AM a bush, slowly growing large and wide.
I AM a pair of shorts, folding gently on the flesh, not hindering the movements, letting the legs free.
I AM the quiet before the storm.
I AM a city at night, silent, but thriving with life.
I AM forever, locked in a nutshell, waiting to explode.
Whatever that means about me, that was what came out of a fast-shooting creative moment.
Are you up for 5 minutes of intuitive writing?
See you tomorrow for Creative Writing #2!
