We will update this post with a list of writing prompts we have used in our writing sessions so far. Feel free to contact us with any ideas of your own!
1. Why is Ian having trouble steering the car? (Click here for Esther's response and click here for Christine's!)
2. "I remember ..." (Click here for Christine's response and Click here for Esther's.)
3. Write about unicorns (Click here for Christine's response. Click here for Esther's response. Click here for a guest contribution from Sunny Ganeva.)
4. Pick up the nearest book. Now pick two numbers - these represent the page number and the line of text you will use as a prompt. On July 1, we picked: "Until her last moment on Earth she was unaware that her irreparable fate as a disturbing woman was a daily disaster." (Click here for Christine's response.)
5. Imagine you're in a courtroom having to defend yourself against a murder charge. The medical examiner has spoken about the autopsy and your DNA is present. There are eyewitness accounts placing you at the crime scene, your fingerprints are there and they are on the murder weapon. The family of the victim is there looking at you during all of this. The oddest thing is that the person you seem to have murdered doesn't actually exist. You know this, and you know everyone does as well yet they're all sending you to prison for the murder of a person who doesn't exist. How do you argue your innocence against a jury who isn't in on the game and are only going off what they see and hear?
