List 31 Simple Pleasures. Then every day for four weeks, write about one of them.
It’s a simple challenge that will require that you dig into all five senses. If you want to write a short story about hot chocolate on a cold day, do that. If you want to write about your memories of your first teddy bear, do that. But make sure that you use all of your senses every day.
I find myself doing this challenge once a year because my tastes change as I get older. “Snuggling up on the couch with a good book” has always been on my list but my description of it has changed throughout the years.
If you’re feeling brave, let us know about some of your simple pleasures. Write down some of your favorites in the comments section below. I’m sure you’ll come up with something that no one else has even thought of.
