Write About The Ordinary

Filed in: {get inspired}

Young Woman Peeling Apples, Nicolaes Maes, ca. 1655

So you think your life is too ordinary to write about? Forget it. I love writing about all aspects of life and your own life is full of topics for unusual, fun and touching essays. I’ve written about everything from love to liver! I kid you not.

Look around you. You’re surrounded by the beautiful ordinary. Write down 3 things that catch your eye.  ie/Tell me about the memory of the best apple you’ve ever eaten.  Were you alone? Did your dog watch you eat it? 

Hmmmm. How about the teetering pile of books you have in the corner? Yeah – that one.  Why is it there? What does a waiting stack of books mean to you? 

Wait a second.  I smell soup simmering. What kind is it? Is it your favorite or made with love for someone else?

The millions of smaller moments in your life dramatically outnumber the large ones. Just because they’re small doesn’t mean they aren’t intricate, lovely, or layered with meaning. So there.
