As a writer I know that deep down each of us has stories worth telling. The writing prompts offered here will help you find your own special voice. Read them, let your mind wander freely and listen carefully to the voice within. Then begin writing. Don’t be afraid. Just write what you want to say. Amaze yourself!...

Lost in the Ocean — Survival

You are a six year-old youngster who has escaped with your mother on a boat from Cuba that has capsized somewhere off the Florida coast.  You are holding on to an inner tube you shared with your mother, who was forced to let go as the waves crashed upon you both.    What thoughts are going on in your head as you wait in the ocean.   Will you be rescued?

Meeting a Historical Figure

There is a famous person in history whom you always wanted to meet.  Maybe your words will affect a key decision that person is about to make. That person is all ears. Think carefully now:  What would you say or ask? How would you change the course of history?

Your Last Day on Earth

Things have suddenly gone dreadfully wrong!  Astronomers are predicting that asteroids will rain down upon Earth and extinguish life as we know it. You are deciding how you will spend your last day on this planet.  What will you do?  Where will you be?   Who, if anyone, would you want to be with?  How will you celebrate the amazing beauty, the wonderfulness of your life in its last moments?
