Home Trending From Prose Come Hang Out With Us on The Prose Writer’s Block

Looking for a creative outlet? Well, we’re kickstarting the Prose Writer’s Block and everyone is welcome. Come hang and share your responses to our monthly prompt on Instagram via the hashtag #ProseWritersBlock and check out all the other variations people have dreamed up.

To start, we’re going to do a quick haiku, but don’t be intimidated! Haiku’s are actually super simple. Here are the guidelines:

[1st line] 5 syllables: your hair in the morning
[2nd line] 7 syllables: what you love about your hair
[3rd line] 5 syllables: favorite haircut

And boom, you’re done! Here are a couple that our team has written to give you a little inspo. We got a bit carried away and strayed from the prompt, so feel free to get creative as you like, too!

Pillow tossed and turned
Long, wavy flowing down down
Layered and layered

-Amanda Flores, Editorial Director

Two braids wrap around
Dark coils and waves spiral down
Face framing shoulder

-Emily Bowen (me!), Editorial and Content Assistant

Three rats make a nest,
an endless holding pattern.
The last always wins.

-Trace Barnhill, Senior Copywriter

Toss and turn surprise
but always adaptable
Movement like a dance

-Rashi Birla, VP of Creative

Constantly constant
My hair reflects what I feel
it does what it wants

-Emily Goodman, Brand Designer

Bushy and braided
Hair is an ancestral gift
Rhythmic and bouncing

-Faith Huffnagle, Director of Education

A mind of its own
Curls unravel in their waves

-Sam Stone, Senior Brand Designer
