Following the suggestion of one of you we’d like to introduce small stone Sundays. Every Sunday we’ll create a small stone blog post here, and we’d love for you to write post a small stone.
Keep writing. Once a week (or more) for the whole year. Sounds good to me.
Small stones make me look at the world differently and take a moment to pause… Fi
I have found that writing one often leads me to others on the same day… Some days it was difficult to find anything to write about but I’ve plodded on so I hope to keep going until the end. Reading others poems is great too… This has been great for me, a lovely challenge and so many people taking part which is wonderful. Heather Walker
It is a wonderful experience…Some days I’ve written four or five, which has surprised me. It’s been more automatic–though only “automatic” because of the daily prompt. I am very glad I signed up for that. They are not only lovely slow-down pieces themselves, but since they arrive in the mid- to late-afternoon for me, they’ve become a signal to slow down, take a break, split the day, see (really see) something. That has been good. Cynthia Reed
Almost every day I’ve thought that nothing could possibly come, yet every day something has made me wake up and take notice. frankie carboni
This practice —of first noticing—then translating to words—has given me great joy this month! Wabi Sabi
I am finding life feels much richer for noticing and committing a few words to the page every day! This has been the brightest January I can remember. Claire Zoghb
I have written one every day. Some are really bad, some are OK, and there are several that I am proud of. Mostly, though, I am happy with what the writing has brought to understanding myself. Wilma
So many wonderful comments from you all about writing small stones. I’ve had to stop copying them for fear of creating a post which is pages and pages long. If you’d like to read more check out the comments section of this blog post.
So what next? smalls stone Sundays will start on this Sunday and carry on throughout the year. If you didn’t take the Mindful Writing Booster (30 days of small stone prompts) you could sign up for that, or if you’d like to look a little deeper into yourself and into your world sign up for one of our e-courses.
Starting tomorrow we have Journalling Your Way Home and Writing Towards Healing, as well as the Creative Boost Package The Way of Getting Things Done for all of you who need a little boost with your projects…
Thank you again – it’s quite overwhelming to have helped Satya introduce this practice into the world, and to see so many of you joining us and being affected by paying attention and writing.
Enjoy the last day of the Mindful Writing Challenge, and keep writing!
