A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend. How you use the prompt is up to you. Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like. Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise. If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in Sammi’s comment section.
HOLDING HER HAND
Wayne urged me to get in touch with my inner child.
“It hurts,” I whined.
“It’s the path to healing.”
One day, on the way to my appointment, I stopped at a thrift store. Spying a hand amid a pile of pre-loved stuffed toys, I pulled out a doll with a familiar face. I hugged her soft body and was comforted.
Wayne smiled at her. “She’s you.”
Coincidence? I think not.
“Hold the hand of the child
that lives in your soul.
For this child
nothing is impossible.”
