As I shared in day one, part of my 2021 Year Of Marilyn Bucket List Challenge is to push my writing in new directions. Those directions don't have to create published works. They only have to exercise my writing muscles in new ways.
Day 2's exercise in Every Day is a Poem by Jacqueline Suskin is example of that. It pushes me to think in terms of symbols and symbols can be very important when sharing written stories, as well as create deeper meaning in our own lives.
"If we want to saturate our lives with meaning, we can create our very own mythologies to carry with us where ever we go." - Every Day is a Poem.
The writing prompt this day was to think of five things that are significant to me and give them a symbol, then explore why I choose each symbol? The five that leapt out were easy. Choosing their symbols took more thought
"I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something else. " - Hermann Hesse
