Captive


Hello Fellow Bloggers,

It’s Friday again. Hope you have been having a great week of writing. But if not, what’s holding you back?

Are your thoughts held ‘captive’? Are the words not flowing? Many things can hold us back from being our best at writing.

We can be held captive by many things…our past, expectations from others, rejection, depression, fear of failure, withholding forgiveness…and the list goes on.

Our negative perspective on life comes from what holds us back; or what cages us.

If your thoughts are held captive, write your way out.

On the other hand, have you ever been captivated by a good book? song? or natures beautiful view?

What are your thoughts on the photo or the word ‘captive‘?  Please share. I look forward to seeing your interpretation of this.

I Got The Music In ME…


Hi Everyone,

It’s Free Flow Friday and  today’s prompt is a music clip.

If you were to ask me why I like music so much…I would have to say,

Music unlocks the Laura in me.

To stop the flow of music

would be like silencing my mind.

There’s nothing like a good song to express that very thought, feeling or moment in time. So, todays Free Flow Friday is all about the music.

The link below is a song that I have added to my Spotify playlist.

It picks me up. It makes me smile. It moves me.  Check it out!

CAN’T STOP THE FEELING

Now it’s your turn. Post a favorite song or lyric. Share your thoughts on music. Tell me what makes you move.

Thanks to all those who have participated in the past. I really appreciate your contribution on Free Flow Friday.

Writing Prompt: Melt With You/Music


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.
