This week’s prompt for The Erotic Journal Challenge is:
Obviously, you can take this prompt wherever it leads, but in terms of your erotic life, what are you most grateful for? Who are you most grateful for? Are there parts of your body(or your lover’s) you are most thankful to have or feel or use? Have you had experiences (good or bad) that you are grateful for because they led you to today?
Prompt suggestion: Write a letter of gratitude to the thing, or person, or experience that you are most grateful to in regards to your erotic being or sexuality.
The nuts and bolts of the challenge:
Each week, I will post a topic or question that I plan to explore in my own journal. I’m going to post them and add a link-up so that readers can get in on the challenge, too. I encourage you to respond in whatever way seems most authentic – a journal entry, drawing, photo, video, story, poem…ANYTHING that can be posted on your website. Then, link your post here. This is your interpretation, whatever the prompt inspires in you.
I’ll post the prompts sometime on Saturday each week (I like to sleep in, so be patient), and the link-up will remain open until the following Sunday at 11:55 pm (Pacific time). This means you have two weekends and the week to write, so hopefully that will give everyone plenty of time.
I have enough prompts to run the challenge all year! So, gear up for some deep introspection if you plan to participate. I loves me some confessional writing!
Please contact me with questions, comments, or any great prompts you think should be part of the experience.
Upcoming and past prompts can be viewed on The Erotic Journal Challenge homepage. Our next topic is “Body Love” #1: What parts of your body do you love or have trouble accepting and/or #2: What parts your partner’s/lovers’ body(ies) do you love most (or have trouble accepting)?
I’m not a stickler for rules…I like people to write what feels good to them and share, because all of our stories matter. Take this post/challenge whatever way works for you. Just remember to…

The link-up will remain open until next Sunday June 23 at 11:55 pm (PST). I’m extending it for a second week because of the website issues and because I’ve had such a busy week trying to get things boxed up to and cleaned to put our house on the the market. I put a new link party below the original, so if you can’t link up to the one that says “closed,” link up to the one below it.
