On Sunday August 16th, I’ll be offering a writing prompt webinar called “Sunday Morning Writing Time” from 10am to 11:15am Pacific Time. During this writing prompt webinar, I will give a series of prompts designed to help you dig deep into your story. The prompts are framed with memoir in mind, but you could also use them for writing fiction. After I give the prompts, we will have a quiet writing time together. Jason Poole, The Accidental Hawaiian Crooner, will be strumming us in and out of the prompts with ukulele.
“Why not just do prompts on our own?” we ask. Good question. I’m not sure why we often avoid starting activities we long to do. But I do know that when I commit to writing with others, I show up and get going.
