September Writing Prompts

A little late, but here are September’s Writing Prompts. My daughter is back to school, my uni course starts back up again soon and I am enjoying getting back to the familiar routine of study, writing, reading, working, housework, that fills so many of my days.

I have been collecting words lately. When I read a book or a blog post, sometimes a word will stand out to me and I have a feeling I might have something to say about that. So I started to keep a little list of words in a notebook. Words that spark interest, are metaphorical or symbolic for something in my life right now, or something connected to the changing seasons.

It is one of the ways in which I coming to see that I have to find my own way to do this writing thing. For more years than I care to remember, I have been reading books and articles about writing. Goodness me, doesn’t everybody have something to say about it! So much advice. So much good advice. But often conflicting, and how do you know which is right, or at least right for you? Well, I guess you don’t, not without trying out what works for you. And when you try out enough different ideas, you come to see that there are other ways too. And you begin to listen to yourself a bit more. This is something I’ve not been very good at in the past.

So, here’s to September. A golden month, I sense. A month to discover your own way of doing things. Enjoy the light xx

  1. I think the only solution to writing is just to write, same as if you wanted to be a better tennis player. I try not to worry about it anymore and occasionally when I go back and read an old post, I can sometimes be surprised by what I wrote.

  2. We learn by doing so just keep doing! I’m looking forward to September too. I love the autumn as much as I love the spring. Good luck with your uni course and all the things you want to achieve. I look forward to spending more time in the kitchen making use of the autumn harvest. x

  3. I have that same shelf full of writing books. Spent a long time reading about HOW to write without actually writing. Then one day, I put the books down and just started scribbling and in the end, I think that’s what they were all saying. Just say it.
