Writing A Novel: The 10 Best & Worst Things That Have Happened To Me
Today is Friday, May 9, 2014 and things are wrapping up for the big Mother’s Day weekend here in America.
So as we’re reflecting about life and the sacrifices Mom has made in your life, here’s today’s writing exercise.
The recommendation is to write these out on 3″ x 5″ notecards, but really, any place you want to write them out and think about them is fine.
The idea behind this exercise, those previously mention, and those to come is to help give you a wealth of material to consider if you’re writing a novel, or, if you’re just in a reflective mood about your life in general.
So take out a sheet of paper, notecards, even your Notes feature on iPad, iPhone or Mac, etc. and think about these next two questions. It calls for 10. Maybe that’s enough. Maybe you can/need to do more than that. Either way. I encourage you to do these exercise in quiet reflection. There are no right or wrong answers. And no one has to see them. This is for you. Did you know that according to mental health experts, most people among us never sit down and do anything like this at any point in their lives? Here’s your chance to do something few others will ever do.
