Write or Die Wednesdays


Hey, everyone! How fun it was reading everyone's posts about the magic of books in last week's link up! I think we all agreed that books are a life-long companion --a source of nostalgia, adventure, catharsis and growth. We even had a few newcomers, which is always a welcome surprise! If you missed it, feel free to check out the posts here :)

This week's prompt is the word ADVENTURE. What has been your greatest adventure? What is the most adventurous thing you have ever done? Have you ever been on an emotional adventure? The writing possibilities are endless!


Have you joined the Write or Die Book Club yet? It's a quarterly book club focused on books about writing, creativity, inspiration, etc. We hope you'll join us! Click here.


Happy writing!!!

Adventure
Leaves me unsure
I want to go
But I don't know
If I should

Journey
To the center
Of my soul
The drama unfolds
I assume my role

Bravery
In the face of danger
The doubts come first
Oh old friend
You are no stranger

Confidence
I call your name
I need you now
More than ever
Don't extinguish my flame

Excitement
I bite my lip
My breath grows rapid
Let's go do it
Together we'll vanquish

No small feat
I'm ready to go now
You by my side
Take my hand
Go along for the ride

  1. I have to say that my greatest adventure was taking a chance and marrying my husband after only dating for 2 months. :) Best decision I ever made.
