Day Two: One-Word Prompts



So, my hope for this book that I am writing is that it chronicle my odd and enchanting (?) life. So, with this in mind, I purchased The Book of Me: a do it yourself memoir I haven’t touched it since 2010, and the reasons why will be chronicled on another day. But, for now… let’s start with The Book of Me; a do it yourself memoir section, “One-Word Prompts.”


“Even one-word prompts can rev up your thinking and stir up an insight. Write quickly and don’t second guess yourself.”
