Running the Curvy Girl Guide Community puts me in touch with thousands of brilliant women, and their equally brilliant platforms. In an effort to embolden and promote the powerful voices I surround myself with, I’ve developed a month’s worth of writing prompts for them (and you!) to explore and magnify across their blogs and social platforms.
After all, who doesn’t need a little bit of inspiration?
Feel free to pick which prompts fit your needs for the day!
1. Write a letter to yourself 10 years ago. What do you know now, that you wished you’d known then?
2. The first time you were called fat. When was it, and how did it change your life?
3. “If beauty didn’t matter, I would…”
4. PHOTO POST: Red lipstick, skinny jeans, tall boots… take a photo and tell me about one item you’ve been afraid to rock… until now!
5. Tell me about the 5 women who have changed your life.
