The February commerce-oliday (Valentine’s Day) is upon us, and I’ve got a creative nonfiction exercise for you. This is a wonderfully healthy (though challenging) exercise, especially given how often modern people face messages that tell them they are not good enough, that they need something or someone else to make them worthy of love.
Here’s your opportunity for a corrective: Write yourself a love letter, and mean every line.
Write Yourself a Love Letter
Bare-bones description: In this exercise, you will write a love letter addressed to yourself.
What this exercise accomplishes: The goal of this exercise is to help writers view the strength of their own character without apology.
