I'm particularly inspired today because I've just been to one of the largest libraries near me - the Carnegie Library. And can I just say, *swoon.* I love books. Remind my husband never to drop me off there. Not unless he wants to get rid of me for a few weeks or months. So. Much. Fun. Oh, and the kids on the field trip might have had a good time too. *wink*
Before we write, let's start by building our palette (not to be confused with palate [the part of your mouth] or pallet [something you lie on] ):
Vocabulary word of the week:
1. to make known by open declaration; publish; proclaim formally or put into operation (a law, decree of a court, etc.).
2. to set forth or teach publicly (a creed, doctrine, etc.)
My writing prompt today is inspired by my current library read - The Four Loves by C.S. Lewis
"[Friendship has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival."
So, how about it? Spend about 15 minutes on a freewrite - no need to edit or polish - about friendship. What does it mean to you? How important are friendships in life? What do your friends add or take from you? Do you agree or disagree with Mr. Lewis on his assertion of friendship's value? You can write a short story, prose or poem. Just make sure it's friendly.
I can't wait to read your thoughts!
Oh, and one more thing - don't forget to send me your questions for "a little bird told me" on Saturdays. For more information, you can go here.
