February 24: Everything is Inclusive

A Write Time Daily Writing Exercise:

Exercise: During the day, write down some of your thoughts. Or, write down something catchy, provocative or strange that a person said. Just glimpses: nothing more. Take these random thoughts and sayings and connect them. Use the glue of your spirit and the guidance of your Muse to lead you. Write transitional sentences between the thoughts and sayings. Write a story or poem, or do a composite-character sketch. Watch what happens.

Discussion: Presence is the heartbeat of good writing. The ability to write from the present moment enables the reader to enter your story and feel a part of it. For those of us who are required (by work, school or other duties) to write in a business or academic manner, it is important to practice writing in the present moment. The best way to do that is to simply follow our thoughts, take one, and see where it goes. Then another, and another.
