Hi, friends! Gosh, I'm a little nervous to post my first video here, but it's always good to challenge yourself with things you know are fine but feel uncomfortable. ;) Hello, I'm Laura!
A little summary in case you aren't able to watch the video right now:
I'm starting a new 30 day project for October: 30 days of freewrites. You're all invited to join! Yes, October has 31 days - but we can take Halloween off. ;)
Freewrites are awesome. Put pen to paper and let the words flow as they may! There's no word or time limit, just post one everyday. We'll be sharing on Instagram... I know it's not the most Instagram-friendly thing, but you can type out your freewrite if you're feeling particularly zesty, or just post a picture of your freewrite for general accountability and encouragement. I bet your journal and handwriting look awesome.
I forgot to mention in the video that for the project I'll be using #30dayfreewrites on Instagram. If you decide to join us there, use the hashtag, too, so we can find you and cheer you on and be Instagram pals! :)
Here's an example of a freewrite I've done in the past in case you're curious:
Amongst the trees a bright sun rises to fill lives full of jellybeans and firecrackers and misery. All in one is the tale of the future, of some other place where certainty is divine intervention and pick-up-stix fall into a category of mustard seeds and findlings. What kind of barbell must one possess for this kind of faulty favor? It’s at our expense, the cabin, the landlines, the motivation, and the price can’t climb the way a hyena takes prey. Pray. What a difficult thing. Minions. Giraffes. Substitutes of sorts. That’s all the bologna sings for and the rest is for the birds. Fly now.
Yours may look completely different than this, and be more logical, and that's totally cool. This is apparently how words like to flow out of my brain. :P
I hope you'll join us! Happy Monday, everyone! Let me know if you have any questions.
P.S. the freeze frames you can get on videos are hi-larious.
