When I set out this year, I brainstormed a list of “states of being” I wanted to prioritize in my life. And, because it made good sense, I used that list to create the Erotic Journal Challenge themes for 2020.
January’s theme was mindful, which is actually my main word for the year. February’s theme was sensual. March’s theme was curious. And April’s theme is receptive.
–willing to consider or accept new suggestions and ideas.
–“a receptive audience”
–Similar: open-minded, open to new ideas, open to suggestions, open, responsive, amenable, sympathetic, well-disposed, interested, attuned, flexible, willing, favorable, approachable, accessible, friendly, welcoming, susceptible, impressionable
–Consider similar term: surrender
April seems like a receptive month…early spring in our neck of the woods, the time when the earth and its creatures are open and accepting, and expectant… surrendering to possibility. So why would we humans be any different?
Take it in ANY direction that feels comfortable to you. I simply provide a few questions/prompts as a way to get you thinking IF you need the boost. There is NO OBLIGATION to use ANY of them! Use one, none, or all!
If you have any other ideas related to the theme, please share them in the comments so others might be inspired.
Remember, you can link-up as many times as you want during the month! Feel free to double up on memes, too.
And remember to link-back to this post and use the badge! Read others’ posts, comment, share what you love on Twitter! This is all about introspection, sharing what we learn, and supporting one another as writers and people.
Link-up will be open from April 1st to April 30th.
