Daily Writers’ Fix: Grab Bag

Do you keep a journal? Sitting down with paper–perhaps in the form of a nicely-bound book–and a pen can be a great way to unwind, relax, and clear one’s head. Today give yourself time to reflect and write a journal entry. It’s for your eyes only, so don’t get caught up in writing well. Just write.

If you don’t know where to start, use one of these prompts:

  • Your most vivid memories from this past summer
  • An amazing meal you ate recently, and who you shared it with
  • What you’re hoping the upcoming holiday season will be like (and what you can do to make it happen)
  • Your childhood career aspirations and how they resemble or differ from what you do now
  • What you like or dislike about your neighborhood
  • Your favorite place in the world

  1. Public Journal:
    It’s been boring lately. I go to school, I go to work, I get payed, I hang out, but there is no real drive to any of it. I work and go to school so that I can make money so that I cam do more of those things I do for leisure, but even the leisure is lite in value. Over the last two days I’ve been reading Heinlein’s “Starship Troopers”. Good book, should have read it sooner. It resonates with already existent undercurrents in me that maybe I want to do more. I think after I graduate, I’m gonna join the Air Force, or at least try. Something about the lifestyle fits better in my mind (or maybe it’s glorification). I see it less as a job. I wouldn’t go to it, and work, and then go do other stuff. Sure I’d have responsibilities and such, but I’d be living the job. It would be a life and i’d get payed regularly for living, and I think that suits me. The only thing I think that would stop me is if I was in a committed relationship prior to this event. I’ve pretty much whittled down my prospects to just one person. Not saying more prospects may not present themselves, but this prospect suits me better than most of my prior prospects. She’s a good counter to my ‘intrinsic nature’ and that helps keep me in balance. I know she’s not interested yet, and I doubt she ever will be, but that’s ok. If it happens, it happens, if not… then not.
