Writers’ Workshop Prompt 3 – The Moon’s Influence…Dreams, Cycles, Senses

The full moon of this month is this Friday, February 18th ! The moon has long been associated with the subconscious, intuition, imagination, and madness. It could be a source of bewilderment, increase sensitivities, or simply be our source of light in darkness. Our connection to the dream world is heightened  around the full moon. This week keep an account of your dreams, explore your senses(taste,touch, smell), find something hidden in the world of shadows with your writing.

Some dream prompts…

  1. What worlds do you dream about?
  2. Recall a character from a dream. Sit quietly for a few minutes – go back into the dream space until you have a strong impression of the character. Write about them, as them, or to them.
  3. Recall an object from a dream, what does it feel like, taste like, smell like? What importance does it have to you?

Writers’ Workshop Prompt 2 – “Language is a Place of Struggle”

Communication is an everyday exertion. Creating a bridge of meaning from one mind to the next is a pervasive effort with barriers to overcome. This week lets explore the simplicity and intricacy of one-to-one communication.

Write a series of letters. They could be addressed to someone you love, an ancestor, a place, a fictional character, someone you wish you knew better or have trouble talking to, a tree, an animal…an audience of one.

Writers Workshop Prompt 1 – Freedom & Nurturing

February 1st is National Freedom Day in the United States – an overlooked, warped, and of course historically problematic holiday, but as we start writing in a month marked by the complexity of progress and emancipation, lets explore our ideas of freedom. This week write about boundaries to freedom, as well as pathways to freedom as you experience them or witness them through nurture, neglect, action, and reflection….

Specific Beginnings….
1.  What hungers do you have and how do you feed them?
2.  What animals are inside of you, do they come out to play?
3.  When do you feel free?

Welcome to WCC’s February Writing Workshop!
