Get Whimsical! Or Reflective…

I was looking through my blog posts, and I found this one I posted in 2010. I think it’s a fun one to do periodically, changing the tone depending on your mood. I hope you enjoy…

One of the regular readers of this blog pointed me toward the journaling exercise below (thanks, Kablooey!).

I can see many uses for these prompts:

* to use as a journal and reflect on your life…

* to go inside the head of a character in your current novel or story and gain some insight into his or her world…

* to have some fun with creative whimsy (my choice for today)…

* to use creatively in whatever way resonates with you…

As always, I’d love to see any responses you want to share in the comments!

FOR TODAY
Outside my window… the fog has turned into 20 dancing giraffes who are putting on a Broadway show for me.
I am thinking… about whether I’d rather have wings or wheels.
I am thankful for… aardvarks.
From the kitchen… the cinnamon and the butter are having a passionate affair.
I am wearing… my brain on my sleeve.
I am creating… a guest house in my mind out of gorgeous, unrealistic ideas.
I am going… to dance on the beach until the waves applaud me.
I am reading… the extravagant body language of the bent fork that’s trying to seduce one of my spoons.
I am hoping… my new wings don’t fall off when I fly into my dreams tonight.
I am hearing… ideas chattering outside my door like excited giraffes auditioning for a play.
Around the house… I have folded scientific evidence and foggy memories into every drawer.
One of my favorite things… curious elephants peeking into my windows on Sunday mornings.
A few plans for the rest of the week: thinking about giraffes, wrestling with foggy memories, waving at stars, dancing with my brain, breathing…
