prompts and stuff

I had an interesting writing prompt this morning. The prompt was, “This is the voice of my body.” At first, I did a prose-poem type of thing that was very personal, talking about the voice of my body.

Then I started in on a fictional thing — from the point of view of a homeless person in Ester’s Park who has stigmata as the voice of his body. It’s a short piece but it’s very interesting to me how it flows, as well as some of the ideas and images. This is a keeper, I think.

It felt very good to write this morning. I’ve done a couple of writing prompts since I came back from WisCon, but none of them have been as satisfying as this one. The good news is that the day job insanity is close to being finished. I have a very good friend coming in for the weekend. I’m looking forward to seeing her. Then, next week, maybe I can start to have a more normal life again, instead of working, eating, working, sleeping, working — you get the picture.

  1. Your prompt made me think of Fight Club and the articles “I am Jack’s Colon” and others written in first person about parts of the body. *g*
