Weekend Assignment: Borrowed Words

Words have a power all their own

This weekend, let’s write using another author’s words for inspiration. I love this bit of advice:

“Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no whenever you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here. Believe in kissing.” ~Eve Ensler

This week, write your own personalized passage by borrowing words from Eve Ensler. No, I’m not suggesting you plagairize this passage. Far from it. Instead, borrow the opening word for each line and follow it up with your own thoughts. Change the order of the words if you like. Here is the list:

Cherish

Take

Sleep

Learn

Go

Say

Say

Decide

Decide

Believe

The Show and Tell Challenge

Step right up and take the B&B Show and Tell Challenge! Here’s how: simply write your response to this assignment, post it on your blog, then come back and leave a link to your post in the comments. It’s that simple!
