Today’s writing prompt comes from 642 THINGS TO WRITE ABOUT – YOUNG WRITER’S EDITION. This is my second dip into the prompts in that book. It’s an excellent book intended to stimulate creativity in young people. Not only are there creative writing prompts to inspire creative writing, there are also prompts for essay writing.
