Let me share an experience, a prompt really, that was offered to me in a writing salon. It sent me searching. It urged me to write, to explore, and to wonder. I’m hoping it serves to stimulate something in you as well.
Sonder is a made-up word for an emotion we all feel but don’t have the words to express. John Koenig’s The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows began as a web series, then became a beautiful hard-bound book. I bought that book after experiencing this video and responding to this word as a writing prompt. Other words therein have led to more adventures and conversations since.
Watch. … Write. … Let me know what happened for you? Or keep it to yourself and adventure on …
