Summer Hiatus Week Two

Self Care Prompt:

Write a letter to your inner critic telling her to shut the hell up. No, seriously. Tell her all the reasons you don’t care what she thinks. Be firm. Be raw. Be as brutal to her as she is to you. Don’t worry about hurting her feelings. She doesn’t have any.

Writing Prompt:

What age do you write for? What were the three most significant experiences you had at that age? Give yourself twenty minutes and do a timed writing about those three experiences. Be specific, not general. Not, I feared losing my best friend, but I stayed up for six nights in a row worrying who I would play with when Michele moved away because Amy liked to tease me about my braces.
