The Write Block Wednesday: I am thankful for…

Happy Day Before Thanksgiving! As you all remember, I re-introduced The Write Block series at the beginning of this month for my faithful NaNoWriMo or NaBloPoMo friends. I commend those who have smashed the challenge this month. I often get frustrated when I’m forced to write something, and I easily become distracted with whatever else will stimulate my mind. That’s the main reason why I created The Write Block series in the first place to develop a space for me to write without limits and share my work with likeminded individuals.

Just in case you need the rules, here you go:

Set your ideal writing mood
Using the theme, write in your journal or digital document uninterrupted for 15 minutes (Make sure you time yourself)
At the end of the 15 minutes, stop typing or put your pencil down
Read and/or share what you wrote (Remember: Sharing is optional)
Ask yourself – can you use this for a future or current project?
If so, keep it. If not, still keep it. You never know what source of inspiration will come from it.

Here’s The Write Block: Writing Prompt for this week:

What are you thankful for?

If you are in the Charlotte area, and would like to attend the next The Write Block session in 2016. Please e-mail me at alwaysphrea@gmail.com.

Happy Thanksgiving!
