Here’s another holiday themed prompt. Step away from the hectic, grab a cup of coffee or hot chocolate, maybe a holiday cookie or two, and let your creative mind wander. Write anything, write something, just fill that sheet of paper, or computer screen with words.
I like to write with a “stream of consciousness” such as this. A computer screen feels like noise to me sometimes, it speaks of deadlines, of rushes, of have-to-get-this done. Whereas, a journal or a notebook, and a pen – fountain pen preferably, speak of my time, my corner, my quiet time, the intimacy of notebook and pen, mind uncluttered with daily needs and needs and wants. Just me, an image in my head, dialogue emerging, and the true flow of words on paper.
Have some fun.
I hope the frenzy of this holiday season is still leaving some good writing time.
I’m an early morning person and often I’ll do my “stream of consciousness” writings first thing in the morning when all is quiet and everyone else is still asleep. Of course, for night people, it could be the opposite end of the day, after everyone has gone to bed.
Either way, take a break, empty your mind of holiday noise and holiday to-do lists, and free flow your way to a quiet corner with this six-word prompt with a bit of a holiday flavor to it. Just go where the words take you.
