Sing Out Your Success | Poetry Prompt 11
This week has been kind of amazing for me. My friend Laura and I run The Reverie Journal, which is an online poetry zine where we discuss all things poetry. October marks our 1st year anniversary. On Friday, we launched our first compilation featuring poets from around the world. I'm kind of in awe. This year has been filled with a lot of setbacks, changes, and the unpredictable nature that is life. I'm proud that we've come this far and surprised that it worked out so beautifully.
This brings us to today's prompt.
Think of a time where you surprised yourself. You set out to do something and you surprised yourself. You weren't even sure if the goal was feasible. Maybe it was something you hadn't done before. Maybe you did it against the advice of family and friends. Perhaps you had to war against your inner doubts to make it happen. But you did it anyway and you did it your way.
Tell us your success story.
Remember the prompts are just a suggestion!
