60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday: Knowing Yourself Speaking Truth to Authority.
by Diane Wyzga | October 15, 2021 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Goeteborg, Sweden!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday with questions carefully chosen to help you collect stories in the oral tradition or spark your own writing. Either way, you’ll say, “Thanks for the memories.”
Perhaps like me you’ve been surprised about when and how your personal knowing shows up.
I remember a 6th grade grammar school homework assignment: write a story for English class. I did. Here’s my story: “Once upon a time long ago and far away they all lived happily every after. The end.”
Problem was my teacher didn’t see it that way. “Miss Wyzga, you didn’t understand the assignment.” And from out of my very deep knowing came this reply: “Yes. I did. You didn’t understand my answer.”
Needless to say I ended up where all the back-talking girls find themselves more often than not: in the principal’s office. But something had shifted. I realized that they didn’t know everything and, more importantly, I did know something – about me!
Story Prompt: When has your bold, daring, unexpected Self surprised you? Write that story!
Practical Tip: The magic of stories is also in the sharing. If you wish share your story with someone or something. All that matters is you have a story.
This is the place to thrive together. Come for the stories – stay for the magic. Speaking of magic, I hope you’ll subscribe, follow, share a nice shout out on your social media or podcast channel of choice, including Android, and join us next time!
