I don't know if you missed it, but last week my Old Friend from Far Away post was about remembering.
1. A memory of your mother, aunt, or grandmother. 03/26 2. A memory of the color red. Do not use the word "red." 03/05 3. A memory of sound. 03/12 5. Write about a meal you loved. 02/26 6. Write about rain. 04/09
I can't decide if I should put the writing prompt at the beginning of the post or if I should tell you about it beforehand. I also can't decide if I want to do these creative writing exercises on Fridays or Saturdays or if I just want to be sort of uncommitted and ambiguously call it Creative Writing Weekend. What do you think?
Anyway. I'll file all of these prompt posts under the label "Old Friend from Far Away," if you're wondering.
This is the next one. I thought it might be fun to announce some of them so that if you want to, you can play along.
"Here is a test. The good thing about it is all answers are correct. Right off the top you receive an A" (Goldberg, 6).
4. Write a picture of a teacher you had in elementary school.
I'm probably going to break these up and use one or maybe even two each week for a few weeks, then announce the next prompt. I'll even come back here and cross them out as I go so you can follow along.
What are you going to do?
