Author and playwright Mary H. Webb often used the prompt “I remember” in her writing groups and classes. Recently, the Military Partner’s and Families Coalition invited me to write a piece honoring the 3rd anniversary of the repeal of the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. Today is the 3rd anniversary from when that repeal went into effect.
“I remember” is a powerful and effective writing prompt when at a loss for how to begin either because the blank page is staring back or because the idea peculating in your mind is just too big to tackle. Try it next time you’re searching for just what to say as you create a piece of nonfiction. (Works for fiction too.)
