Writing Prompt—Holding On
If you want to write about your own experiences, especially during these times, you may want to do it by trying a structured writing. Do this by answering simple questions that allow you to explore various experiences. As you write simple answers to these questions—or create your own questions, you may find you are ready to do an in-depth writing on any one of these topics. If you are ready, and never write when it hurts too much, release some of your frustration or find some of your joy as you answer these questions—
If one of these questions, leads to a deeper exploration, follow your words. Write on. When you finish, leave the writing. Come back to it later and ask yourself: what have I discovered in this writing. For example, I realized in writing this blog how my yard and nature have become such a new and wonderful learning tool in my COVID life.
