We all need to warm up before we sing, exercise or write! We will be sharing ideas here to help you “work out” your writing muscles. Take a deep cleansing breath and stretch! For more writing inspiration share your stretches with us. We will be happy to post them.
Remember how nice it felt to squeeze Play Dough between
your fingers and to make what ever came to mind?. . .
We should treat language like Play Dough when we write. . . When we use our imaginations and play with words, it’s exciting to see the shape. . . that emerges. ~Margriet Ruurs
SQUEEZE Play Dough and let your mind wander. WRITE a poem, a paragraph or a page. Your topic: Childhood is . . .
Post your "squeeze" in the comments.
Sailor’s Delight by Janie Reinart
Perched on a
Pink sky summer night
In a red maple tree
As my Father
With a grin
Ready to protect me
