pad and pencilSo here are my four lists, the loosening-up exercises before starting into Roberta Allen’s book The Playful Way to Knowing Yourself. There are a few extras in there, but I just couldn’t leave them out! And they’re not in any specific order. It will be interesting to see what she has us do with them. And by the way, this book is an over-sized workbook, so if you think you might seriously want to do this and keep all your writing in one place, please consider buying it. It’s not expensive. Have a look here.

Back when we first started this challenge, I hadn’t figured out to post responses up here. But since Lori is bravely going back to do the earlier ones, I will add them now as she does them.
