Writing Prompts

Write on Wednesdays: Writing Prompt – Father Edition


When I was little, every day we had free writing time right after the bell rang. It caused immediate calm and quiet. Everyone knew just what to do: get out a piece of paper and pencil, and look on the board for the writing prompt. Sometimes it was a question like How was your weekend? or What is your favorite book? Every now and then it was a question that stuck with you the entire day. The teacher invited you to share what you wrote, but I never shared my musings.

Throughout my life writing has always been a way to hash out thoughts to start a plan for some new adventure. Morning pages are a must for anyone wanting to learn more about themselves. More importantly it’s a great way to record memories, your state of mind, your voice.

So what is a writing prompt?
A writing prompt is just a little push to get you started with writing ideas. You’re free to stick to the subjects I leave here or let your mind wander. I know that thinking of what to write can be daunting, so I put together a list of 5 writing prompts below every week to give you some fresh ideas.
