Go out into your garden, or into a public green space. What is the history of the land you stand on? Using your knowledge of how the land has been used over time, the evidence of objects you find, and your imagination, write a 1000 word story about it.
The words stuck in the back of your throat, and caged words on the page, are like the tracks the caged storyteller leaves behind, the clues to their functioning.
My writing this past year has focused on my erotic desires as a path to healing and spiritual enlightenment.
