Poetry Prompt 10 - Wild Writing

How are things going? Are you writing poetry everyday, every other day, are you stuck? Remember wherever you are it is right and perfect. Be kind to yourself, take a bubble bath, go for a walk, or as I talk about below, dance.

Wild Writing: Wild writing comes from the wild mind. For me it is accessing that part of myself that is primal, that part of myself that doesn’t listen to societal conventions. Dancing takes me to this place like nothing else can. It takes me out of my body and into that space of imagination, possibilities, and no thought. I know you’re probably wondering how you can write if you are in a place of no thought. Well, that is the place where your ego steps out of the way and deep connection happens. It is a place where your writing can fall onto the page almost of its own volition. Try it for yourself, put on some music and dance into and out of your own way and let loose your wild writing.

Writing Prompt:

If you already have music that you want to dance to and access your wild writing, great! If not I am sharing one of my favorites that help me get to that place. Listen to the music, dance, and get in touch with your wild self. When you feel ready, come to the page and let it pour out.

Word Prompt:

Untamed Heart

Sentence Starter:

Blood rushes through my veins...
As I dance...
