You know? If I went chronological, we’d be on prompt #163 today, which got me thinking: I should post some of the old classics from years gone by.
If you’re looking for a little writing inspiration, check out these PROMPTuesdays from the archives, see if one resonates, and let your brain nosh on it.
Please just write.
We’ll all be better for it.
From PROMPTuesday #42:
I want to know about your songs. What brings you back to a pivotal moment? Or an everyday moment you’ll remember forever? Tell me a drop of your life as crystallized by a Top 40 hit, a Broadway number, a dirge.
For today’s PROMPTuesday, I ask that you write about a trip or an excursion that left you changed in some way. Did you conquer a fear on your trip? Learn something about yourself? Learn something about another person? Break up? Get together? Consider hospital time for the largest walking blister this side of Manhattan?
What are your back-to-school memories? Tell us about one. Your memory can be your own, or one from watching your child go to school, or a story inspired by a memory, or anything back-to-school-y. Either way, make us smell the must of the chalk or the acridity of teen spirit.
Write about deception. Whatever that means to you. Can be fact or fiction.
The above prompts were some of my favorites. Click on the links to see how other writers answered the PROMPTuesday call…there’s some great writing there.
