my favorite things - julie andrews

Today's writing prompts are centered around our favorite things. Enjoy the music by Julie Andrews. Then make a list of 10 of your favorite things. Try to make a phrase for each. For example, it's not just a rose, but "raindrops on roses," as the song goes.

After you make your list, you can chose to write an essay or a poem about one of them. You could also write a list poem titled, "My favorite things," and include all on your list and perhaps more.

This is good writing practice.  No such thing as writers block on this one!

For fiction writers, if you have a novel you are working on, pick one of your characters and spend a time making a list of what your character's favorite things are. This can give you some insight as you continue on with your book. If you are not working on a novel, pick a character from one of your short stories and go from there.

Happy Writing! And please, in the comments section, give us a few of the items on your list. We'd love to see them.
