Write About Gifts

How is your writing going these days? Do you need a boost or inspiration to put your seat on the chair, stay there until you write somethng? In Blue Ridge Country magazine, Elizabeth Hunter, wrote an article about her students in a prison writing class. Elizabeth teaches Nature Writing at JCCFS and I admire her immensely. In fact I buy Blue Ridge Country just to read her column, On the Farm. Once Elizabeth gave me pure maple syrup, a product of her mother's trees in Vermont. I'd never been a fan of maple syrup until I tasted the real thing.

Elizabeth gave her prison students some prompts to engage their writing efforts. One student made a list of the gifts money can't buy. Have you thought of doing that? If you read his list it will certainly give you something to think about, maybe even right about.
