PROMPT FOR THE WEEK: THE POEM “THREE THINGS TO REMEMBER” BY MARY OLIVER

We are experimenting with giving a prompt for the week so members can have more time to work on it and then bring their writing to the group meeting the following Monday.

The prompt for this week is a poem by Mary Oliver from her book of poems titled, A Thousand Mornings.

Three Things To Remember

As long as you’re dancing,

you can break the rules.

Some times breaking the rules is just

extending the rules.

Sometimes there are no rules.

by Mary Oliver

Take any inspiration you find in the poem and write in whatever direction you wish to take it.

Prompt: Precepts

Like a motto! Like a famous quote. Like a line from a fortune cookie. Any saying or ground rule that can motivate you. Basically, a precept is anything that helps guide us when making decisions about really important things.

Mr. Browne, Wonder

The prompt this week is from the book and movie, Wonder, by R.J. Palacio.

Write your precept and explain why.
