Pursuit

Filed under: Journal writing — freethepen @ 2:33 pm

Filed under: Journal writing — freethepen @ 3:18 pm

KODAK Digital Still Camera Sometimes it is the deep green of a cypress tree or the lime green field of long grass that can spellbind us. What memory do you have of the color green? A crayon, pistachio ice cream, Aunt Mabel’s old and ragged tablecloth? Write it all out. Include the five senses, people, location, and other details involved.

The Color White

Filed under: Journal writing — freethepen @ 1:36 pm

Funny Boy Playing In A Snow Igloo On A Sunny Winter Day Write all you know about the color white. Don’t think — just begin writing about what you don’t know and it will lead you to what you do know. Thinking can be a form of censoring. Just begin!

Keep the pen moving,
