Howdy thar, folks! SO! We’re going to start another book on September 20th, just in time for the Autumnal Equinox. Lovely time of year! In the meantime there are two challenges to play with the next couple weeks. Today’s is from Raili’s blog (soulgifts — Telling Tales) and one for next week I picked up on from Janet Thomas’ blog (Elixir: Creative and Reflective Writing).
Raili’s prompt fits quite well with what we just finished up. It expounds a bit on the question, What actions might you take now that you wouldn’t have taken before? So here’s Raili’s prompt!
I turned my mind to this with the help of the Mythic Oracle cards. No 18, Poseidon the earth shaker turned up. Interesting. “old structures that are no longer useful to you are breaking down and a new knowledge is removing the foundations on which you’ve built your current place in life… truth is the old foundations no longer serve you… a new land will be revealed in time… This is a time of clearing – the old house has burned to the ground and it is time to build a new one. … this is an incredibly exciting time full of new opportunities and possibilities. Enjoy it. Ride the waves into a new phase of your life.” Prompt: A new me.
What are the endings and beginnings needed
for your “new me” to be birthed?
Describe the qualities, attributes, and beliefs of a “new me”.
I already had a bloomin’ dream about this after I read Raili’s idea. I was quite surprised and I’m not real sure how to write about it!
As always, remember to include the link to this post on YOUR blog post. Or if your response isn’t overly long, feel free to leave it in the comment section below. And please feel free to interpret the prompt however you wish: memoirs, poems, pictures, etc.
If you would like to see the previous prompts, they’re listed in the menu at the top of the blog in The Sandbox Writing Challenge. But please feel free to just jump in wherever we are at the moment! After all, the prompts are really for YOU to get to know YOURSELF. (Posts from past prompts you wish to tackle will always be added to the current week’s challenge page.)
This is a great prompt, Raili. I think it pushes us to think about some actual steps to take to put all we’ve learned in practice. Thank you SO much for coming up with it!
