Day Twelve – Stream of Consciousness

Stream of Consciousness Day. Start the sentence “______” just write, don’t stop, don’t edit. POST! I am a little angry right now. No, scratch that, I am frustrated and so incredibly annoyed. I feel as if the worst of me is coming out of late. I have nothing to blame for it either. Well, I do. But that seems nidicolous.…


Day Eleven – Theme Song

Theme Song. Imagine your health focus or blog getting its own theme song. What would the lyrics be? What type of music would it be played to? John Mayer – War of My Life – This is the acoustic version. It is beautiful. I am sad to say that the song that best defines my life is this song. Its…


Day Ten – Dear 16 Year Old Me

Dear 16 year old me. Write a letter to yourself at age 16. What would you tell yourself? What would you make your younger self aware of? I had this post open for almost a hour before starting typing. I thought long and hard about what I was like at 16, what was most important to me 8 years ago.…

Day Eight – Best Conversation This Week

Best conversation I had this week. Try writing script style (or with dialogue) today to recap on an awesome conversation you had this week.

Day Seven – Health Activist Choice!

Health Activist Choice! Write about what you want today. Maybe try a bonus prompt. I’m taking this Saturday to write about my family. I live in Lichfield Staffordshire with my parents and my brother. I have done so since finishing university two years ago. Without sounding ungrateful for my disease, I am glad it happened while I was here. I contemplated…


Day Six – Health Kaiku

Health Haiku. Write a haiku about your health focus. 5 syllables / 7 syllables / 5 syllables. Write as many as you like. This is pretty candid: If I was honest I sometimes wonder if This is a dream


Day Five – Ekphrasis Post

Ekphrasis Post. Go to flickr.com/explore and write a post inspired by the image. Can you link it to your health focus? This is my image. I held on to you like you were the most precious thing in my world. Your hands cupped my face, its cheekbones prominent, the cheeks now unfilled by the Prednisone hamster face of months gone by, looking…
