Writing Prompts 2/3

  1. Today is Veterans’ Day in the US, and Armistice Day everywhere else in the civilized world.  2014 is the hundredth anniversary of “the great war.”  Write what you know about World War I.  Do you have any relatives who served in the military?  Anyone currently? Do you have to work today? Go to school?
  2. Did you get a flu shot this year? Describe the last time you really had “the flu.” I’m really looking for the real flu.
  3. Now that we’ve talked about being sick, what medications and/or suppliaments do you take? Why do you take them?
  4. What are your plans for the weekend?
  5. Earlier this week, we wrote about drugs. Of which libations do you partake? When were you last drunk? What’s in your glass now?  What will be later?
  6. What’s the best place for brunch in the city where you live?  When did you last go?
  7. ~o/When I was seventeen/it was a very good year/o  Write about seventeen year-old you.
  8. Have you started your holiday shopping?  Any idea what you’re going to get people?
  9. Have you ever been to a foreign country?  List the ones you’ve visited, and what you remember about them
  10. Now that you’re two-thirds of the way through, write about whatever you’d like.  Will you finish this year?  When have you done this previously?

I will keep waiting to see if anyone offers some suggestions before I finish.
