Hello, guys! How are you, this week? I hope everything goes well.
I don’t think today’s post will be very long. It’s more of an announcement and an encouragement.
I’ve recently discovered two amazing accounts on Instagram (@breath_words_ and @aseawords) on which one can find poetry challenges. The given words are quite interesting to compose with, and the community is very warm and supportive.
I like to try new things, although you might know it by now, and I’ve told myself I’d start January forcefully. So, I entered the #JanuaryFalls challenge, which consists of writing a (few) lines using a different word each day. I think it’s great! And quite hard, may I add. I’m not used to having limitations in my writing, but I loved that the challenge made me think outside the box.
I’d love for you to try it. It’s never too late to go beyond your limits. And there’s clearly specified that you can write even one line. You can do it, can’t you?
I would also be delighted if you checked out what I’ve written so far. Just look on the right and you will find my Instagram page, and click on any of the latest pictures — and let me know what you think. There’s nothing better than the moment when someone tells me how they feel about my writing and what it awakens in them.
One thing is for sure, I will participate in other challenges in the future.
