Writing Prompt: Let it go

Suffering from writer’s block or need to add some spunk to your writing? The problem may be that you need to change up your routine.

To that end, try this tip: Many writers use journaling to deal with trauma and emotional upheaval. One way to do that is to write about what you need to let go of: bad relationships; habits and behaviors that no longer serve you; grudges and hurts that you obsess about. Just listing any of the above and describing why you feel that you need to let go of them can be enlightening and empowering.
