Today's #wpthu writing prompt follows ...
Take 10 minutes to put pen to paper (yes, longhand — it's good to get away from the computer for a while, and to reawaken your writing hand) and write about love and loss.
Simply put pen to paper and write. Nurture a sense of letting go of any creative burden, self-critical judgment, or comparison (with yourself in times past, or with others). Keep your pen moving. And honor, truly honor, whatever flows through you and onto the page. This is great practice in learning to trust in the process.
— And let's get the conversation flowing in the comments below. Also, feel free to type up your piece and post it below, leaving out any personal particulars which you prefer not to share ...
