The Write It Out series is a monthly creative writing challenge which serves as an opportunity for bloggers to explore their creative writing in a supportive environment. Each month I will share a prompt along with my writing inspired by it, then invite you to participate. For this month, write about being new at something.
New is Enough
Being new is exciting.
It makes you curious.
You are The New Girl
The Breath of Fresh Air
And a Brave Soul — because being new is also scary.
It puts you in a vulnerable position
Open to a group of people with the well-worn habit,
Open to all your insecurities of not being
Good enough, smart enough, lovable enough.
Just remember these people are new too.
They are new at seeing just
How good, smart, and lovable you are.
So go, Brave Soul, and be new
Because being new is exciting.
I am very curious to read what you come up with from this month’s prompt and remember, you don’t have to write a poem. You can write anything you want: a short story, a long poem, free prose, etc. If you do write something, make sure you link up. See the details below:
- write from this month’s prompt and post on your blog
- submit your post below where it says “click here to enter”
- encourage your readers to take part, too!
