15 Days of Writing Prompts: Day 2 ~ Memories

Today July 12th is Day 2 of 15 Days of Writing Prompts. If you’re just joining us today, feel free to do the prompts at your own pace. Just remember to pingback so others can connect with what you share!

2. Begin with “I remember.” Write lots of small memories. If you fall into one large memory, write that. Just keep going. Don’t be concerned if the memory happened five seconds ago or five years ago. Everything that isn’t this moment is memory coming alive again as you write. If you get stuck, just repeat the phrase “I remember” again and keep going.

(These prompts are taken from page 20 of Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down the Bones, a treasure trove of wisdom for writers of all skill levels.)

In case you missed yesterdays:

1. Tell about the quality of light coming in through your window. Jump in and write. Don’t worry if it is night and your curtains are closed or you would rather write about the light up north- just write. Go for ten minutes, fifteen, a half hour.
