Last week’s prompt involved students taking home dolls. Their task was to use their doll in their next prompt. They were free to redecorate their doll however they liked. The results were fantastic.
Some of the stories became autobiographical, metaphorical, entertaining and some were therapeutic.
We had fiction, poetry, nonfiction, nanofiction… the variety in the work makes me proud to be leading this class.
Each student is really stretching themselves as writers. That is as thrilling to me as seeing my own work in print.
New week, new prompt. This week it’s simple: a set of clothes.
It could be something you significant you wore at some point such as a prom dress, horse riding duds or the first day of school outfit.
It could be something imaginative like magic pajamas or mysterious like a tuxedo that whispers when you wear it.
The prompt is a key to unlock parts of yourself that have been forgotten or hiding. Let’s hunt them down, dig them out and capture them on paper.
