Prompt/Cope 7/28/17: “you’ve got mad skills…coping skills that is”

Here’s a simple prompt/cope: Write a piece about a coping skill. You may want to think about what triggers a symptom, the symptom itself, then the coping skill you use. Have fun, experiment with structure and language. (prompt by David Welper) @buddylitzine

Prompt 7/14/17: “trial & error”

Often, finding the right medication or therapist is a process of trial and error.  Write something in which the content itself is a trial and error (i.e. starting then restarting a poem), or a character in a story is constantly restarting something (not necessarily a med, but anything).    Isn’t the writing process sometimes a trial and error!?   Have fun and keep writing….   (prompt by David Welper)  @BuddyLitZine
