Inventive Writing Prompt Round-up #54

Ah summertime….I've been on vacation, I've been slacking…no scratch that last one, I have not been slacking since I got home.  There's much to do to catch up from vacation and get ready to be out of the country for three weeks.  Awk! The thought of it makes my heart pound–in a good way and a bad way. Anyway, all this is by way of saying that this week on my Tumblr blog, I missed a few days.  Blame it on brain overload, but I thought I had a bunch of prompts scheduled to run and then I came home and realized I didn't.  Alas.  But I did publish two prompts on one day to make up for it!  So here you go:

#376  The look on her face said it all.

#377 There was nothing she could do but quit worrying about it.

#378  Write about what happens when your main character travels.  Is she intrepid, an adventurer? Or does he hate leaving home, needing everything to be just as he likes it?

#379  How does your main character want others to see her? How does she see herself? Are the answers to these two questions the same? If not, explore the rich space in between.

#380  What is your very first memory?  What is your main character’s?

 So, yeah, a bit sparser than usual.  But there should be enough to keep you going for a little while. How is your writing proceeding?

I love my first memory. I stood by my mother’s knee. She was teaching me to draw. I couldn’t stand without my hand on her leg. We didn’t have air conditioning; few people did. Her dresses were thin cotton often with small flowers. She washed them and then dried them in the sun. It is a smell you can’t find today. I remember my mother’s voice, the smell of her dress and the drawing I can duplicate blindfolded.

Oh how wonderful.  That could so be expanded into a personal essay.  Was she an artist?

She could draw, very creative, never an artist in the traditional sense. Not a lot of education, didn’t attend high school. I am bringing two stories to Collioure, one about her. I’ve written it but, apparently, not well enough. I don’t know what the planned format is. I have two short stories I would like to write. We’ll see.
