I've decided to give the creative writer inside some regular exercise. The muse has not been attacking often. As I searched for sites that offered writing prompts for bloggers, I came across Sunday Scribblings. And so, I have commited myself to the challenge of stimulating my creativity on a weekly basis.

This week's prompt is skin. I started brainstorming...being thick-skinned ... something getting under your skin ... beauty being skin-deep ... skin being the outer layer of ourselves ...

I've decided to try my hand at an acrostic poem.

Soft, tender, the outermost me
Keeping me bound together
Image reflected in the mirror
Never revealing the me within

Excellent response to the prompt.

Keep writing. Keep tuning into the muse.
