Central theme of your writing piece for the day:

Porcupine encourages you to follow your intuition.

Writing Focus:

Two sides exist with the porcupine, so it is integral for you to listen to your intuition.

On one hand, the porcupine encourages you to get in touch with the playful side of your self.  Ask yourself if there is something that can benefit from a little humor or lightheartedness?  Are you taking your writing a little too seriously?  Are you characters a bit too serious and could use a dose of playfulness?

On the other hand, the porcupine warns you of a prickly situation you might want to stay away from.  Is there a situation that you KNOW that you need to lay low?  Sometimes it’s tempting to walk into the eye of the storm, but you might get more than what you bargained for.  Better yet, your character might get more than what s/he bargained for.

I Dare You To Take Action Prompt:

Liven up your scene with the Porcupine!

Inject a sense of playfulness into the lives of your characters.  Or add a twist of your character walking into a sticky situation s/he knew that s/he shouldn’t have.

Oh, imagine the juiciness of those scenes with those elements inserted in.

I’d love to hear how this oracle has enhanced your writing.  Leave a comment and enrich the lives of our other readers.  Pay your experiences forward.
