This week’s Writing Prompt Pick of the Week gives a fresh perspective on incorporating symbolism into your writing.
“By becoming more attentive to our dream lives, we can acquire a heightened sense of symbolic undercurrents of existence that imbue life with meaning. Tune into your subconcious by recording your dreams and attempting to build stories about them. This will prove to be a more efficient way of incorporating symbolism into your writing than by inserting symbols arbitrarily.”
Prompt: Select a dream that you’ve managed to record in some detail and turn it into a realistic short story with symbolic overtones. Build the story around a recognizable event, such as the struggle between a separated or divorced couple to reconcile, etc.
