Writing Prompts II: Make the World Better

20170323_130946 2It was brought to my attention that I haven’t been posting class assignments on my blog lately. I apologize, and would give all my excuses of how many plates I have in the air but that’s not what’s important. What is important is today’s prompt.

We had surprise visitors today from Stewart Ross, International Trustee and chair of Florida Kiwanis, and Kiwani Grant Williams to share information about what the Kiwanis are doing to make the world better, starting locally.

Afterwards we still had enough time to hear what was written from our last prompt—what would your life be like as an author?  The writers in Prompts always come through with poignant, well thought out poetry and prose. Today was no different.

20170323_151312In honor of our visitors, the new prompt for next week will be—How would you make the world a better place? Bonus points if you can overcome an obstacle or block.

Examples might be ending world hunger by making sure each household was provided with a chicken for eggs. The block might be overcoming prejudice against chickens.

Next week everyone is also invited to bring a favorite book that has impacted their lives. And, speaking of books, congratulations to Laura Kester Duerrwaechter on publishing her first book, Bipolarity, available on Amazon.

The Kiwanis visit inspired our prompt for today—how would you make the world a better place?
