I was feeling very uninspired by the “K” terms relating to emotions, so I am taking some liberties with this post. As luck would have it, I attended Beautiful, The Carole King Musical last night. So I got my “K” in there. I can also stay with the emotions theme because music inspires all sorts of emotions. It was a wonderful show, so if you haven’t seen it - put it on your “to do” list.
I love 50s and 60s era music. Rock and roll in its infancy was light and bouncy and full of energy. It always puts a smile on my face. For me there is a purity and honesty in the songs of this generation. Many of these songs were wonderfully lyrical in their storytelling and so relatable. Some so sweet and tender, some fiery, some pure fun, but all make you feel something:
You've got to get up every morning
With a smile on your face
And show the world all the love in your heart
Then people gonna treat you better
You're gonna find, yes you will
That you're beautiful, as you feel
Let’s Get Emotional
My goal with the challenge this year is to use it as an exercise to write something focused on a particular emotion. I hope to convey that mood or feeling through word choice in the story. I welcome your feedback on what worked or didn’t for you in each piece.
Once upon a time...
