For today’s Monday Morning Warm-Up, I’m switching things up a little. Today I am going to ask you to commit to writing a few short phrases every day for the next 4 days. It won’t be hard, I promise.

Here is the challenge:

Start noticing more.

Yup, it’s that easy. Almost.

Today, look with new eyes at your world.

What do you see that’s always been there, but that you never looked closely at?

What small phrase do you overhear, or even say, that catches you off guard?

What do you smell that you only smell this time of year? That reminds you of where you are in this big world?

Every day for the next 4 days, write down 3-5 things you notice. They can be small, they can be big. But they must be short phrases of a few words for each observation. (The challenge is to use as few words for each as possible to convey something bigger.)

Each day, add 3-5 more observations to your list.

By Thursday night at 8pm EST and NO LATER, leave your list in the comments section below and I will post it here for Poetry Friday.

In order to be listed you must:

1. Leave your list in the comments below.
2. Give me a name you’d like me to use (it can be just a first name if you’d like).
3. Provide a link to your web site or blog if you’d like it to be included (not required).

Sound fun?

I think so!!

ALSO: For everyone who participates, I will put your name in a drawing to win a signed copy of SEE YOU AT HARRY’S!

Shop Indie Bookstores

There will also be ANOTHER prize of temporary BE tattoos for up to 10 other participants.

So, who wants to join me? 🙂
