I got this book a month or so ago. I was hoping it would help me with my aggressive creative block. Writing prompts help so much to get things moving in my mind. I got a drawing version as well and I plan on doing something similar with that one.
I’m going to do a prompt from this book and post that entry on here every Wednesday. It’ll be great! /sarcasm
I’m hoping this will help get me used to writing again since I haven’t really dedicated time to it in a long time. So, that being said, here is the first prompt:
What can happen in a second?
It only takes a second for me to lose any and all inspiration. I began writing something more personal for this prompt but in a second I felt too much and backed down. I’m not ready yet to let out my really personal stuff yet. I still feel more comfortable avoiding those feelings than letting them out. When I’m really struggling and I’m alone with my partner, I feel free to express all the pain I’m holding onto, but even that is a huge step for me. It took a long time for me to feel safe enough to let out my feelings to my partner, he had to really work with me and prove that he wouldn’t hurt me by acting like my feelings and problems weren’t important. That was a big problem I’ve had in past relationships, my partners blowing me off or trying to convince me that my problems weren’t bad enough to be concerning. I’m so lucky to have found someone that takes my dreams and my insecurities, and anything else that I struggle with, very seriously.
I have to admit, even writing that was emotional for me. I feel a little worn out.
