Day 14: Writing Stretch

Congratulations on making it through the second week. Take a deep breath and remember, if you have made it this far, you are doing everything right. Most don’t keep going. They let life get in the way. Lets face it, as writers most of us do that at one time or another. We let excuses come in the way of sitting down and really writing. It does not have to be a masterpiece every time. It just needs to be creativity thrown on paper to free and clear your mind.

Today we continue with our stretches. Pick any Genre and write. Be more specific than just romance or poetry, break down into the genre you pick to a more specific topic, just like last time. I choose a Villanelle before and that was more challenging that I had expected. I can’t wait to see what happens with this one.

Today I am challenging myself to do another form of poetry. I am choosing to do a Haiku. Good luck and I hope everyone enjoy this stretch. I thought it would be easier than what it was. What seems simple to most can be more challenging once started.

You see right through me

No matter how dark in the depths

You know all of me

Now that we have started to stretch, we are going to take it up a notch. Continue writing but pivot, write another poem or short story, whatever you had but with a new topic. Do these two more times, before finishing out today’s challenge

Pumpkin fills the air

Turkey will fill my belly

Family rejoice!

Last but not least:

Sun, fall gently down

Moon, rise high into the sky

Light, forever here
