Welcome to the Challenge! This is a weekly journal prompt activity I’m starting to help myself explore my own eroticism. Over the past years, I feel like I’ve sort of fallen out of the habit of living an erotic life…or maybe I should just be honest and say, I’ve never really lived a fully erotic life, at least not in the way I’d like to. Getting in deep touch with my own sensuality is something I’ve struggled with. Every so often, I catch a glimpse, and truly get a sense of what it is that turns me on and heats me up. But, it’s like a back warming burner on the stove…easy to forget about, never hot enough, and I’m always just a little afraid to turn it up to high.
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 (my first ever!) 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.
I’ll post the prompts on Friday or Saturday each week (depending on my schedule). The link-up will open Saturday at noon (Pacific time) and remain open until the next Friday at 11:55 pm (Pacific 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.
