A lot of things (including the book I am working on) have been taking my attention lately, and I’ve had a hard time coming up with blog topics. So when I saw a book at the bookstore with writing exercises, I thought, ‘Why not?’ Here’s today’s:
#1: Your houseplant is dying. Tell it why it should live.
“Little Plant, I like you. You look a little ragged, and maybe waterlogged. You haven’t bloomed for a while. But don’t go and die on me. I’d be really sad if you died. Come on, what do you say? I’ll re-pot you and give you some delicious, nutrient rich potting soil. I’ll water you more carefully. I’ll put you in a nice, sunny place with a southern exposure. And you don’t give up. For as bad as it seems now, it’s going to get better. Believe me and try hard. You’ll see: one day you’ll be a gorgeous, healthy plant with beautiful flowers. Don’t give up!”
