NHBPM Day 22

Be present.


Today’s prompt is pretty interpretative. Zoom-in on the world around you and write about it as though it’s a scene in a story. So often when we write in our blogs – we use second person and talk to the readers conversationally as though we are writing a friend an email. This is exactly what makes health blogs so powerful (and effective) at doing what they do – create community, raise awareness, and add narrative aspects of health that really need it.


But it can be fun to try a different style of writing every now and then. It challenges us and perhaps even brings out something creatively in us that we don’t necessarily access often.


So the 22nd post – describe something with as much sensory imagery as you can. It can be scene (a peaceful one is what the original prompt said). What are the sights, sounds, scents, and feelings? Feel free to draw upon a particular story or moment or place that means something to you. Use lots of description and “show” instead of “tell” for this blog post.
