When I was at CLP’s Writers/Artists’ Conference back in April, I was extremely glad that I had signed up to take Shari Zook’s class on “Writing from Daily Experience”. She gave many beneficial ideas and then encouraged us to try different writing styles. For a practice warmup, she gave five minutes during class to experiment with a style we do not use very often. This is what I chose to write during class, and I decided to share the raw, rough draft copy with you;)
I am SINGLE because I am a
S ervant, called to
I nvest in the ones around me and to explore
N ew, uncharted pathways. Lord,
G rant me the courage to touch each
L ife with unendless
E nergy that You provide. Let me remember that
H ome is what I create with
O thers even though I am “alone”. Keep me
O pen so that each
D ay is a new opportunity.
Blessings for the Journey,
MarJanita L. G.
