Beginning today I’m writing twice daily, here on the blog and in my notebook from Flash Nano prompts, through the month of November. I’ve needed the uncensored freedom that happens with journal writing. I also love beginning with a prompt, a starting point that allows me to access new ideas. This morning’s prompt had to do with the color brown. At first I thought, how boring. Then I thought of yesterday’s crunchy autumn leaf pile. Cheerios. Half-eaten fruit. Cinnamon. Coffee beans. Sea glass. A palette of browns telling the simple story of toddler days and time passing. Just when I thought I’d run out of ideas, another one turns up. Thank goodness.
