Prompt 22 ~ How to...

Make a list of 5 things you wish you could do. They can be as practical, dreamy, literal or illogical as you want.

Then pick one thing from the list and write a how to guide for it, from the point of view of an expert. You can do research on it (but if you do, give yourself a limit, the point is not to get bogged down in the research but use it as a springboard) or make it up as you go along. You can write it in any format you fancy - a list, a poem, an essay, an instruction manual etc.  You can make it as long or short as you want, as long as you have fun writing it.

If you’d like to share what you’ve come up with, however rough or polished, post it on your blog and leave a comment below with your post's url. At least one of us will come over and read it.

Ta!

Can't promise I'll take part every week but I have been recommending the site to others...
