Group Hug by Robert Duncan Gray

Prompt/Cope 11/17/17: “Therapist’s office”

Describe what you see/smell/hear when you’re in your therapist’s office.  What does this tell you about him/her?  Do you own similar things?  Or, maybe you see something that isn’t actually there (an hallucination).  In the text of your writing, switch between the conversation with the therapist and your observations of the room.   keep writing… (by David Welper)  (Image: “Group Hug” by Robert Duncan Gray)

Prompt/Cope 11/3/17: Holiday season

It’s that time of year again.  Some love it, some loathe it.  But it leaves us with a ton of stuff to write about.  For some, it brings loneliness.  For some, stress.  For some, joy.  Here’s a list of writing ideas to think about: childhood memories, dealing with a mentally ill family member during the holidays, holiday meals gone awry, traveling to be with family, family you don’t want to see or family you can’t be with for some reason (perhaps a loved one is hospitalized for psych and/or physical health issues), holiday movies, different religions, traditions (and breaking them), create a chaotic adventure you go on while shopping for a gift at a mall, growing up poor during the holidays, commercialism of the holidays….   Good luck (hope this is therapeutic and/or enjoyable for you). keep writing  (by David Welper)
