OUR MONTHLY CHALLENGE
On the first of each month, we will post a new writing prompt on this page. Here's all you need to know:
Do not judge yourself. This is not about writing the perfect poem or a polished essay. This is about giving yourself an opportunity to breathe and seeing where your pen leads you. It's about getting in touch with what you're really thinking and feeling. It just might surprise you.
Let your thoughts guide you. Think of our prompts as a starting point. Maybe you begin in one place and move quickly into something completely unrelated. Let yourself wander. That's when you find what you really want to say.
Don't worry about length. Write 5 words or 500! And respond to the prompt as many times as you want. You may come back a week later, read something someone else has written and find yourself inspired anew.
Share - but only if you want. Share it all, part, or keep it completely to yourself. To share, simply copy and paste in the comments below the prompt - or just write directly in the comments' section!
Come back often, and comment on other women's writing. We hope you'll let others know if something really resonates with you. Writing is a springboard for conversation.
