1. INTER-SPIRITUAL Author Anne LaMott says: "My gratitude for good writing is unbounded. I'm grateful for it the way I'm grateful for the ocean.” Ask yourself: What is good writing to me? When or how am I as grateful for my own writing as I am for the ocean? Sit with whatever arises. Don't judge yourself. Imagine celebrating gratitude through writing.
2. EXPERIENTIAL Listen to a piece of music you love. When it stops playing journal to the following prompt: Beyond the music is ____________________________________________.
Write for as long as you are inspired. Trust spirit to tell you when it is time to put down the pen. Read what you've written out loud. Pour your voice into the world. 3. PRACTICAL Alliteration is the occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words. Examples: mystical moments matter; sweet birds sing; Bed Bath & Beyond. When overused, alliteration can be too clever and distract the reader from what you are trying to say. However, use in moderation and in just the right places, it can be like the twinkle lights on a piece of writing. It can both entertain and inform. Exercise: Use alliteration to discuss how and where writing touches your soul.
