Monday Prompt

It's Monday! Time for a writing prompt to get your week off to a creative beginning. As any writer knows, it can be an uphill battle to get a full story, whole and complete, onto the page. And it takes persistence and determination to make it happen.

Today I have for you a quote from The Writer's Book of Hope by Ralph Keyes. The quote is by Walter Bagehot:

"The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do."

So the writing prompt is to write about yourself or a character doing something that they have been told they cannot accomplish. Maybe someone told you or your character that you or they weren't capable or talented enough or determined enough to follow their dream or to pursue their art or to accomplish a difficult task. Find something you or a character were told you could not do and show them doing it anyway. Be sure to include the inner experience of what that feels like.

Have fun and happy writing!
