Writing Prompt – The Most Meaningful Moment of Your Day

Pocket Watch by WinterbergWe experience tens of thousands of seconds–small moments–each day. Even our worst, or our most boring, day surely contains a meaningful moment or span of moments.

Omitting the most special and the most horrible of days, I am hard-pressed to define a single most meaningful moment in my day.

(Is that my ingrained sense of adventure surfacing? I can always find something interesting, even at the most mundane of times…)

I like when the alarm goes off at 5 a.m. in the morning and I peek out the window into the back yard. I do this without fail: rain or shine, winter and summer.

There’s always something going on out there–even in the darkest of winter mornings–or maybe especially then: many times I’ve flipped on the light and caught some nocturnal beast in action.

Good morning kisses with my Husband of Awesome™ are also meaningful…

…as is hitting my daily word quota in the early morning. (Yay! Hooky day!) 🙂

Can you define a most meaningful moment of your day?

Some time ago, Real Simple Magazine featured an article where they asked writers to pontificate on their most meaningful time of the day.

The article features a meaningful moment as written by each author, and spans the entire day. Interesting reading.

Here’s Your Prompt

  • Choose the most meaningful moment of your day today, and write about it. You could write an essay, a diary entry or a poem.
     
  • Tomorrow, record your small moment for each of the hours of the day you’re awake. Write a few sentences about each small moment. Take special care to record the setting, the occasion, and how you felt at that moment. Be brief and concise.
     
  • Make a date of it! Spend the day with your partner and prep him or her about “the most meaningful moment.” At the end of your date, each of you should write down the most meaningful moment on a post card or index card. When you’re done, exchange cards.

 

Good luck!
