Today I am mining for words that might bring inspiration and a flow of ideas. I am mining anything that is written—signs, books, newspapers, the Internet. I am mining what I hear. What do you mine for—ideas, inspiration, antiques, clothes? Where do you do your most effective mining? If you choose to take up the challenge, please add a pingback to this prompt.
Today, I am capturing words. I am reading and listening and searching, and I am writing a list of words that appeal to me, that tug at my emotions, that spark a flicker of an idea deep in my soul. In essence, I am mining my surroundings for inspiration, for words that can carry me through the busy week.
Words are always woven into my life. I am particularly drawn to words that might be a bit ambiguous or carry different meanings and inspire ideas in others. I am mining words that inspire me, but these are not just my words. These are shared words, after all. Words for blog prompts. Words to help others restart their own writing journey. I will stay open and pay attention.
Lucky for me, words are everywhere. And I have a tiny notebook that comes with me wherever I go. The combination should lead to some successful Monday mining!
