As part of my 2010 year word
I'll be launching a regular post,
beginning this Wednesday, called:
The idea is to lure more creative writing out of myself,
and if any of you want to participate,
otherwise join in,
[publicly or privately],
My end of this will be to
post a prompt & a format suggestion,
along with my own writing in response to both of those.
This week, I'm giving myself
a heads up, because
last night I had a crazy dream
which gave me an even crazier prompt idea ...
I dreamed of:
the murders in Ciudad Juarez,
and coffee grounds.
Yea, I know: ?????
So my prompt for this week's introductory
write for 15 minutes about those two topics,
somehow mingling them,
making them play off each other --
a 'writing practice' (as Ms. Natalie Goldberg calls it),
in 5 minute increments,
or 10 and 5,
or a straight 15.
however you want to express it!
And on Wednesday,
if you want to share,
leave a comment with a link
to your piece,
I'll come take a gander!
I would love that!
