Figment Daily Theme, January 2, 2012
Affirmations (I’m good enough, I’m smart enough…) tell us a lot about how a person sees herself and what characteristics she values and wishes to achieve. In journal form, write an affirmation for a character that hints at his deepest fears about himself as well as his wildest dreams.
So get going, dear figs. Sign up. Start writing. And be sure to tag your pieces DailyThemes to receive an awesome new badge, editorial shout-outs, and that warm, glowing feeling of knowing you’re starting 2012 off right, writing a little bit everyday.
