Stop and Stare


Every Friday, a quote, image, music clip, word or writing prompt will be posted. Use these as a way to unblock and enhance your creative thinking skills.

There are no rules. Find your right moment in the day or week to write with little to no distractions. Use a pen, pencil, keyboard or whatever fits the mood and just write. WRITE. WRITE. WRITE. I prefer pen, (blue ink) rather than my computer. My thoughts seem to flow faster when my pen hits the page.

Express all those buried, unconscious thoughts within the deepest part of your mind. You may use the timer provided below as you write. But whatever you do, don’t stop until the time is up. Keep the flow going. Do this as often as you choose. The more you write the more you unlock the block. Once you feel you have a creative flow, take something from your writing and turn it into your own masterpiece.

This event will occur every Friday, so check back for the weekly prompt.
If you have used a prompt and posted on your blog, link back to this page.

Once you’ve published your post, you can leave a link to your post in the comments section of that particular prompt used.

Please don’t post and run. Be sure to stick around to support others with positive feedback.

Your comments, suggestions and questions are welcomed. Please remember to be respectful with your words to keep the positive flowing

 

Free Writing Timer

Photo Writing Prompt: Can you sense when someone is looking or staring at you even when you’re not looking at them?  Have you ever stopped in your tracks just to look at something so amazing that you couldn’t believe your eyes? It has been said that the eyes are ‘the window to the soul.’  Have you ever avoided eye contact with someone? If so, why? Share your thoughts about a stop and stare moment. Write a poem, share a photo, or write about something you could just watch forever. Please share your STOP and STARE Moment with me.

Now it’s your turn!

Let your words freely flow about any or all of the thoughts listed above. Use any words or phrases from the Free Writing Exercise or write about your Stop and Stare Moments.

Please Share: If you have used Stop and Stare to write for your own blog, please remember to share your link here, with your finished post. Don’t forget to check out fellow bloggers. Share the comments and positive feedback. 🙂

Free Flow Suggestions: Please feel free to share your views/suggestions you may have for a few prompts or free writing exercises. Keep the positive flow…

Born and raised as a coal miner's daughter in North Central West Virginia is what keeps me humble. My influence as a Christian, wife, mother and grandmother gives me purpose. Living my life to the fullest and making each day count is what keeps me fulfilled. Using my God-given talents for others simply makes me happy...and living for God is what makes me whole.

  1. The point is these are two different types of stares, one is experience and care, the other has yet to have, time and tide will be their gaurdians
