Word Prompts Help Creativity ~ Week 12 (Today)

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Article Summary

Word Prompts Help Creativity is an article I write each week.

I toss out a single word for us to use as a starting place to focus our creativity.

We can write a short story, a poem, a song, or anything our muse comes up with for this word.

The important part is to have fun while we are being creative.

Try As We Might

Each day brings us to a new chapter in our lives.

Despite our best efforts there are times we get a knock on the door that stops us in our tracks.

A surprise that needs our immediate attention.

I received one of those today and Lord knows, I don't have the time to deal with it.

But that's life, so I'll be clearing out a few hours of my schedule to take a slight fork in the road.

I've got to learn to love these days. I'm certain there is a purpose lurking in the shadows.

But for now, let's dive into our writing.



Inspiration constantly knocks on my door.

Just glancing outside, something as simple as looking at the sky. It doesn't matter if the sun is shining or it's a gloomy day. The words just start swirling in my head.

But I'm usually not prepared. Meaning those words disappear into thin air.

It's difficult to be a writer. Always having those thoughts hit you at the most inappropriate times.

Let's face it. People who do not write don't understand the need for us to start jotting down words when we are with them.

So there are going to be moments when our thoughts are lost. It can't be helped, so don't beat yourself up over it.

You are a writer. More words will come to light.
