After writing my first draft of my next writing prompt post (which should be posted on Friday or this weekend) I considered how this series allows me to let my imagination run in any direction. Even while I am still learning how to form a full story, I can nonetheless enjoy the fun of exploring where my imagination can take me. My second writing prompt post also gave me a reason to pull out books from my collection that I have not read since college.
Sometimes I wonder what my cat does when she is roaming outside. Which new territory does she explore? What sorts of adventures does she enjoy? Which animals does she hunt, or does she run up a tree to escape a large dog? Unlike her, I have a job and obligations. I cannot run out on a whim and go wherever I want. Despite this, I can still let my imagination out to play, and when I am at home I can try to express it. I will try to do that with my writing prompt posts.
What do you do to let your imagination run wild? Do you paint or sculpt? Do you play improv music? It can be a strange place, but it can also be fun.
