In celebration of #NaNoWriMo , National Novel Writing Month, I'm posting a writing prompt every day on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Here's number 25.
The sea and bodies of water in general often feature in my writing, sometimes literally, sometimes metaphorically. I now live in a house overlooking a beautiful pond which inspires me every day. Of the four elements, water is what draws me most.
You can use this image literally (who is standing, looking a this scene and why) or use it to inspire a more poetic or metaphorical way.
Thank you to the amazing photographer, Emma Davies, for this photograph which is so beautiful. Use it to inspire you today. 5 minutes, no stopping or looking back.
Happy writing! 💫
Let’s get the discussion going. Do you think that a person should be bullied or treated differently because they have a more course hair texture? Are you proud of who you are? Why does your hair type matter so much to you?
Maybe I wanted to be like the rocks in the streams;
So rounded and covered in green mosses.
Maybe that’s what I wanted to be.
Stoic, yet soft and sure,
In the same place every day.
With the dappled sunlight flowing down, down, down,
Upon my glistening surfaces.
There, resting in the coolness, the stillness.
Steady and caressed by the passing spirits of the forest;
Those who would come to rest where I was resting.
That’s probably what I was imagining,
Coaxed by watery reflections and sureness, constancy.
I changed my mind and transmuted myself into the water instead.
Fluidity, rushing, sparkling,
Taken by the gravity of life upon an unsure journey;
Yet a journey of adventure;
Down, down, down,
Rushing toward an unseen destination,
Yet meant for a kind of destiny;
Smoothing many rocks along the way.
Publication day! And a big celebration. My novel Poison Bay has been translated into German and is now out in the world. It's been such a long journey. Thank you to Maren Feller my wonderful translator and friend, and all those who've encouraged me and spurred me on when life seemed so hard. I love you all and thank God for you. xxx
i can explain why i can buzz with energy and light up the room when i step in. and at other times i dont even feel like saying hi. i feel to an extent that it drains me. and then i like to be on my own again.
