I recently bought a prompt journal (300 Writing Prompts by Piccadilly Inc.) to force really quick writing. Here’s my latest prompt:
Do you prefer to dance with no one watching, with a group of friends, or with one special partner?
All of the above. I just like to dance. I’m not particularly good or bad at it. I suspect I’m like most people, just shuffling or bouncing along to the beat of the music, but I like the freedom of dancing.
Why do so few people dance in public? Why is it so hard for me to coax (or pull) a friend onto the dance floor at a music festival or county fair? Do people seriously care that others watch? I don’t, but I know I’m in the minority there. :/
