SINGLE STEP 365 ~ MINDFUL ~ WRITE YOUR LIFE ~ DAY 58

TAKE A CLASS OR WORKSHOP.

Years ago I went to a Writer’s Workshop in Pasadena, CA where I had the pleasure of meeting and listening to a varied panel of authors. In one particular workshop, we were each given a strawberry, but we weren’t allowed to eat it. Not right away.

Our first assignment was to use all of our senses to write down everything we could think of to describe the strawberry we held in our hands. She gave us fifteen minutes or so.

The second part of the assignment was to write a poem, a paragraph, or a short story inspired by our list.

Lastly,  we each read our writing aloud and each piece was unexpected, unique, and beautiful. 

The workshop was over fifteen years ago and although I don’t remember the name of the author or the book she wrote (I’m going to research it now), her workshop stuck with me and has been a wonderful writing tool I utilize often.
