Intimate Writing Prompt

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Picture of My Office (my intimate space)

I just finished an interview that you may have read – but it brought to light a fun idea. 

Whether you are a writer or a reader, take a moment to ask yourself this question:
Is there some space, person, or something in my life I know intimately ? 


Of course there is – right? It might be your shower – you put the shampoo in the exact same place every single time. You could find your razor in the dark with your eyes closed. The soap always smells the same. Even with soap in your eyes, you could find the towel bar, right? Maybe it’s your spouse – the patch of hair on his chest, the gentle sound of her breathing just moments before the alarm sounds each morning. Or maybe it’s your writing space or your kitchen table. 
You get the point. Let’s go onto the next question:
Using ALL of your senses, think of how you would describe
this intimate object, space, or person to someone else  ?
There you go – that’s your writing prompt for today. If you aren’t a writer, maybe you could make a list of things you might say or words you would use to describe this intimate object, space, or person. 
If you’re asking yourself – why should I do this? What’s the benefit? I was kind of hoping you’d do the exercise and then tell me if it brought you some benefits, but…
If you must know – this is a writing prompt that is also an exercise in positivity and joy. When you finish looking at this object, space, or person from a new perspective (from the perspective of  stranger) you will have a new appreciation for something you usually take for granted. This is a fun activity to do from time to time and it’s a great way to get those creative juices flowing. 
As you know, I love comments – so even if you chose not to do this exercise, leave a note as to why. If you did this exercise, what was your take away? Please leave your thoughts as they are greatly appreciated and help me grow in my own writing! 
Thanks in advance for the comments! You’re Fabulous!!!
and now…a little more about me…
