Writing Manifesto

washing my hair

my writing manifesto:

// Be curious.

// Don’t compare.

// Write everyday.

// Believe in myself.

// Enjoy myself.

// Spend less time on the web. Or consume better, consciously.

// Remember Gretchen Rubin’s words, “Focus on actions, not outcomes.”


Tips for fighting mediocrity. Write like a cat.

^^ Be feisty. Be frisky. Take a catnip break.
^^ Purr more. Lick your leg and between your toes.
^^ Challenge a snake.
^^ Be naughty.
^^ Watch people shower.
^^ It’s okay. Let it all out.


Under tags, writing prompts you will find past posts that I hope will inspire you to write.  I’ve written about some broad and general topics that I believe everyone can participate in and I hope you will. And don’t forget to let me know about it, okay?

Stories lurk behind the blank page and connection dines on conversations, so let’s start eating. Bon appétit!

  1. Hi Lani: I have included you in a poetry challenge. If you are not into this sort of thing, please feel free not to participate. It is supposed to be fun. The challenge is to post a poem about what LOVE IS…. to you. The criteria are: the poem is 10 lines long, each line begins with the word love and is only 4 words long. When you have completed the poem post it and list 15 other bloggers you think would enjoy the challenge. You can read more about this challenge at https://lightwalker1.wordpress.com/. In love and light Cheryle

  2. Thanks Cheryle. I’m actually participating in University of Iowa’s “How Poets Write Poetry” MOOC course at the end of the month. I might wait to include this in one of the assignments. Thank you for thinking of me. Poetry forever, forever poetry. xxoo

  3. Oh my gosh I love this! I’m a fan of Rubin as well! Also I love “like a cat!” Let it all out indeed. I keep getting inspired by you. I think I’ll tackle a manifesto soon.
