Dirty Pen

“If you stuff yourself full of poems, essays, plays, stories, novels, films, comic strips, magazines, music, you automatically explode every morning like Old Faithful. I have never had a dry spell in my life, mainly because I feed myself well, to the point of bursting. I wake early and hear my morning voices leaping around in my head like jumping beans. I get out of bed to trap them before they escape.”

Ray Bradbury

“Nurture your minds with great thoughts. To believe in the heroic makes heroes.”

~Benjamin Disraeli

Most of us have heroes, those who give something of themselves to make the world a better place. Whether it’s their time, safety, security or kindness, heroes make sacrifices to help those in need.  Who is a hero for you?  Is it a parent, family member, a friend, a stranger or a person who never fails to inspire you? Reflect and write.

“We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come. ” 

~Joseph Campbell

What happens when your favourite character’s story completely changes? Does their perfect life begin to unravel or do their problems magically disappear? What do these changes do to their personalities, do they merely survive or thrive?

 Get creative and have fun.
