OctPoWriMo Day 5


Art work by MDragonwillow

This young woman talks about What Does it Mean to be Yourself and I have to say that I was in tears by the end. Yes she is young, but she is sharing a fundamental reality that we all struggle with. In writing they are always talking about finding your voice and a huge part of that is knowing who you are and being yourself on the page. I know this video is a little long, but trust me when I say, it is worth it.

Poetry Prompt

Be yourself. That is one of the most difficult discoveries we go through in life. Who are you? What are your fears? What are you stopping yourself from doing because you don't believe you are good enough? Write down, I am enough, and then keep writing and see what lands on the page.

Word Prompts


Who I am

I am enough

If I didn't doubt myself...
