Anjali Enjeti, journalist, novelist, blogger, and all-around wonderful lady, puts out a series of summer writing prompts for kids. I love this idea; my mother used to give me writing prompts as a child, techniques that I now see on professional sites. Writing prompts unleash creativity and imagination, and the finished product gives the child such pride.
This prompt, the first one for the summer, made ME want to write.
"What are your summer goals?"
A very good question.
Not gain back any of the weight I've lost so far.
Lose a little more (I realize this doesn't meet the S.M.A.R.T. requirements for goals, deal with it.)
Fly to Colorado and back without losing any belongings.
Rake our entire front yard.
Get ahead of our housework.
Read more "serious" books along with the brain candy.
Publish more articles on examiner.com (Don't forget to subscribe to my posts!)
I think that's a good start, don't you?
