Write about something you wish you had done or said differently.
Guest Blogger Nancy Julien Kopp writes about a topic I am passionate about: Healing through writing. WRITING ABOUT DIFFICULT TIMES IN YOUR LIFE When life hands us situations that hurt, we sometimes want to push it away, hide it in a closet. It’s too hard to bring it forth and try to deal with the misfortune. There are so many events in our life that create deep wounds and leave scars—the death of a spouse, losing a child, being in a terrible accident, losing a home to fire or a tornado, a difficult romance and break-up. The list could go on and on. I believe that writing about whatever happened has benefits. It is cathartic for the writer and can be a help to readers who have gone through a similar situation. You’re a double winner if you aid both yourself and those readers who have been through something difficult….
Sometimes a book is so good, it needs to be shared: Fog Valley Winter by Frances Rivetti is exquisitely written and to be savored. This “Farmstead Fireside Companion” is, indeed, a comfort read. Frances has an amazing ability to turn research fact into a delightful work of art. I highly recommend Fog Valley Winter and look forward to reading future books by Frances Rivetti.
Write about things you can get stuck in.
Habits! Write about your habits. Or write about someone’s habits. Do these habits annoy you? Endear you to the person? Habits. We all have them. Now, write about them.
Write about a stranger who profoundly affected you. Or write about a strange encounter.
