Writing Prompt for February 3:
Write About Your Shadow
Yesterday was Ground Hog day. According to tradition, if a groundhog, comes out of his hole after a long winter sleep and sees his shadow, it is six more weeks of bad weather; if it is a shadow-less day, spring is near.
We all have a shadow side, but most of us would prefer to keep it tucked away, out of sight. In honor of the groundhog, today is a day to write about your shadow, the side of yourself, you would prefer not to look at.
Give your shadow a name and write about it as if you were an outside observer. What does your shadow look like? How often does he or she visit? How do friends, co-workers, or family members react to this personality? What would your life be like if this shadow had more of a voice? Create a character sketch based on this shadow.
