Use this writing prompt to reveal ideas for your next essay, poem, or chapter
One of the things I love about teaching is what I learn from it myself. In a recent memoir writing class, I gave students a writing prompt based on a story I’d heard about a man who only wrote in lists.
I told the student to write their memoir in 20 statements.
What they wrote was revealing, funny, and at times sad. I also realized that each statement could be a springboard for writing an essay, a chapter for a longer manuscript, or a poem.
If you’re searching for a way into your writing, try it yourself and see what you come up with.
