February 9, 2009 Writing prompt!
Instead of making the usual list of things to do, make a list of things you don't have to do. You can make it a list of things that are real--like today I do not have to grocery shop or do laundry; you could write the opposite of your "to do" list; or have some fun tickling your funny bone and make a silly list of nonsense things. The only necessary ingredient is to have fun and smile while you think about how nice it is that you don't have to do . . . .and write yourself into a poem, essay or story.
List of things I don't have to do:
1. Sweep the sky
2. Empty the ocean
3. Race an ostrich
4. Eat elephant stew (Hmm. . .what would an elephant put in a stew?)
