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:
