Sunday February 1, 2020 Writing Prompt

Inspiration Call: * Timed Writing *

Choose a set time to write, 5 −7 minutes serves well. Set a timer, watch the clock. Stop writing when the time is up, even in the middle of a sentence. In timed writing, you write for a short, prescribed period of time. The purpose of timed writing is to prime the creative pump: shortening writing time makes sure you have more to say than time to say it. The frustration of stopping creates the impetus to write more. You become more interested in the ideas and thoughts you want to put down and less self-conscious about the times it’s taking to write. This exercise also helps develop confidence and establishes creative tension.

    on lake Anza

    to dive off
    into the cool water
    of life

    first kiss
    with my wife
    in a bar
    in Itaewon

    on the night
    we got married

    we were kicked
    out of the bar
    for our passionate
    over the top
    first of many kisses

    the eyes of the world
    are upon us all

    they do not lie

    Love transforming her
    All the time she falls in love

    Even now in the field
    Yes as she laid down for a rest
    Even then she is filled with love
    Silently thankful for God Bringing him to her

    stranger in a coffee shop
    exchanging stories
    and wisdom of life
    over a simple cup of coffee

    in coffee there is truth
    veritas reigns supreme
    as we drink the coffee
    and our lies die
