If you’re writing a novel or a memoir, or brainstorming interesting questions for a profile or an interview, you’ll love these prompts. Use them for your character biographies or as daily writing prompts or to generate ideas for blog posts. If you’re thinking about writing a memoir, they will jog your memory and bring long-ago incidents into sharper focus.
Tip: Try to use your five senses in as many of these prompts as you can. The concrete is important in fiction and even more important in memoirs. Experiencing your story through taste, touch, sight, smell, and sound makes it come alive for readers.
