Write One Leaf in Which You Describe a Place Where You May Be Found Seated

The place may be pleasant, unpleasant, neutral or otherwise.

Use the photo and the text prompt as your inspiration for moving your hands in a manner that resembles writing. Don’t just sit there! Move your hands I say! Keep them going for as long as you feel there is something to be gained from the process! Use as many exclamation points as you like! This isn’t a competition in which you must use the correct amount of punctuation marks; it is a poke in the ribs to get you swatting at my hand with words.

As always, do not allow yourself to be limited by the contents of the prompt or by what you see in the photo.

Your eyes may be deceiving you. Your ears too. Fingers! Nose! Mouth! Don’t trust your tastebuds!

Because:

  • You owe reality nothing.
  • Reality owes you nothing.
  • Reality is garbage.

What is all this?

Read the Write One Leaf “what” page to find out what.


Also: Write One Leaf is a Medium publication by Terry Bain, who is the author of You Are a Dog and We Are the Cat, as well as many short stories, a biography, and too many poems. Links that lead outside the publication may be sponsored (like this one). To be sure you receive all Write One Leaf prompts, click the “follow” button on the home page (it may also appear on this page, if we have all our p’s and q’s in order… but I’m not going to make any promises because this is the internet, and the internet changes… a lot).

Feel free to write your Leaf as a response to this prompt, or include a link to this page in your own Medium post. We’d love to see what you’re up to.

Blessings,
Terry
