Unlock the Muse – February 18, 2020

Life is notorious for disrupting plans. This past Christmas, for example, I had plans to take my family over the mountains to spend the holiday with my sister and her family. However, a minor health crisis kept us homebound. Our next best option was to use one of the long weekends – Martin Luther King Jr Day in January, or President’s Day in February. This then, is how I found myself spending the weekend at my sister’s looking for snow instead of writing this blog post. Plans are funny that way.

Inspire
Here’s your writing prompt for this week, courtesy of my sister:

Imaginary friends no longer fade away as children age. Instead, they now grow more real. Adult’s imaginary friends are fully visible and tangible. Tell us all about your imaginary friends.

This is a no-plans-required sort of exercise. Don’t overthink it, just have fun!

Plan
noun:
1. A detailed proposal for doing or achieving something.
2. An intention or decision about what one is going to do.

verb:
1. Decide on and arrange in advance.
2. Design or make a plan of (something to be made or built).

The word plan dates back to the 1670s as a technical term in perspective drawing, and from 1706 as a “drawing, sketch, or diagram of any object.” It comes to us from the French word plan meaning “ground plan, or map” and from the Latin word planum, meaning “level or flat surface.”
