When you tap into and strike up conversations with your imagination -- the place where your greatest stories and novels reside -- it wakes up, and loves being listened to and trusted.

Here's a monthly practice, just ten minutes (or keep going if you choose), to open and strengthen that communication pathway.

1. Grab a pen and notebook.

2. View the image and any text beneath it.

3. Start the 10-minute timer.

4. Have your imagination start a scene or story based on how it responded to the image and text.

5. Write continually non-stop until time is up. Even if you write, "I don't know what to write, I don't know what to write..." that's okay. It still works to build bridges to that buried voice.

For October:

Standing here, what sounds are heard either from the house, its surroundings, or both? If someone were to walk out onto the upper balcony, what would that person look like? At night, when the driveway lights come on, what color is the light?


New image and writing prompt put up near the beginning of each month.
