Memoir Writing Prompt

I’ve just returned from Hawaii and came back excited about four new memoir writing prompts that will move you in a different direction. I’m creating a video about each one with the hope that they’ll put you in the mood to write in new ways and with new ideas.

I invite you to watch the first one below.

Be sure and leave me a comment below.

Hi Lanie:

Thanks for watching. I love slack-key guitar music. Hawaii is a great place for writing inspiration.

I loved your message. A personal place of refuge is something everyone needs! I like your idea of writing for 15 minutes while being in that place. I’m going to try it this week.

Thanks Matilda for sharing your knowledge!

Hello Matilda. Congratulations on 40 years of marriage! My husband & I enjoyed a delayed honeymoon in Kona. It is a special place. This week we are traveling to Moab, where we were married 12 years ago. Thanks for the much-needed inspiration. I plan on working on your prompt there as I’m surrounded by desert and red sandstone.
Take care,
Michelle

Such a lovely place. I feel the same way about England – it’s the home of my heart.
Thanks for sharing.
