Contentment (Prompt)

I read somewhere that it's often easier for people to write about hard times and sadness than it is to capture with words happiness and true contentment. Think back to the last time you felt perfectly happy. Write about that moment, day, or time in your life with as much description as possible. Were you happy because of external circumstances, or despite them?


  1. That has some kernel of truth to it, at least, in my own writing. I have a much easier time writing when I'm feeling angsty or unhappy. Of course, the stuff that comes out is a bunch of negative drivel so that's no good either. ^__^

  2. I've heard of people who used to write in journals saying that looking back it seemed like their life was all bad, because they only wrote during the hard times. Be sure to remember to write the good times and triumphs too!


I value your comments. Thank you for taking the time to leave one.
