Where are you from? {A Writing Exercise with BPB}

Community, intentional living, creativity, that is the core and heart of Bigger Picture Blogs.  Every week we ask you to join us on this journey with Simple Moments,  Bigger Picture. Our community has come together to Help Joplin and Raise Breast Cancer Awareness  and we have inspired you creatively through Write Before Christmas.

There is an old meme going around again recently called Where I’m FromWe have found it to not only be a great writing exercise but a beautiful look into a person and who they are, both things core to our BPB mission. So we have decided to take this little exercise and make it a feature here at our Bigger Picture Blogs community.

Starting on Tuesday August 9 we are going to feature a writer’s interpretation of Where I’m From. The first four weeks will feature our writers and their own submissions. Starting in September we want to feature you! We want members of our community to participate in this exercise, stretch their memories and flex those creative writing muscles. You can participate in two ways:

  1.  You can write your own anytime in the next 12 weeks and put it on your blog. Grab our button (above) and link HERE.
  2. Be one of our guest writers. Fill out this form and we will email you with the date and info for being featured.

We are excited to embark on this creative journey with you!

    Hi lovely writers! I was inspired to fill in the blanks on that wonderful where I’m from meme and would love to share it. I plan to first post it on my blog and would love to share your button to go with it but could not access the code.

    • Jennifer I cannot for the life of me get the code box to show up here on this site either in a post or on the sidebar :-/ You can head over to my personal site (www.peanutbutterinmyhair.com) and I have it in the side bar.

      Thanks for joining in!

    • I have a liinky up under the Writing Me tab a the top, link up! You should be able to right click copy (or download) the button to add it to the post.

  7. praying about posting here, I’m a fairly new blogger….but I don’t think my blog allows buttons :( I have the wordpress (dot) com version free with no additives….and I haven’t been able to figure it all out…will I still be able to post?

    • Yes! Of course! You are totally welcome to post without the button. Just link back to the instructions page here. Happy writing! And looking forward to knowing you. :)

  11. I am in! Just posted mine today. Interesting exercise. I actually sound a little like a poet without having any actual skill in poetry!

  13. My “where I’m from” surely didn’t seem as “pretty”as where some of you are from. It was hard, but I did it…and shared….thank you for the opportunity.

  14. I just did this tonight. What a great exercise! :)

  15. I finally did mine. It took a lot of pausing, erasing, rewriting, reflecting, and realizing that I’m not so simple and that this was a really hard one for me. :) Glad I did it though.
