However, some people like to make lists and find it to be a wonderful way to stay organized. Also, I think that it is easier, when you can't think of anything to write about to be able to refer back to a list of possible ideas.
There are a few reasons why I chose emotions as the topic of today's writing prompt. Some of you may know that I wrote a children's book where the identifying and sharing of feelings is encouraged called, "Clarinda Cloud." I think identifying and sharing feelings in a healthy way is very important. Also, stories that include feelings are some of the most inspirational and breath-taking writing out there. People can relate to feelings, because we all have them. Something scary may have us on the edge of our seats. Something sad, may have us choking back tears. If well written, we can feel the feelings of the characters in the story. To make a list, may help us to think about what makes us feel a certain way. If we feel that way, then possibly our character can feel that way and our readers mY feel that way.
In this writing prompt, I said to only choose one emotion in which to explore and about which to make a list. However, I encourage you to do it with many emotions. It is a great prewriting exercise! If you use this writing prompt, I look forward to hearing about the results.
