Prompt in Honor of International Women's Day

When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die. -- Eleanor Roosevelt

Because it is International Women's Day, I offer the quote above from Eleanor Roosevelt as our daily creative writing prompt. 

Key word:  Contribution

Personal Reflection Prompt:  What kind of non monetary contribution, big or small, would you like to make in the future? Why?

Fiction Prompt:  Invent a story about a character who is on a mission to make a contribution to someone or a cause through his or her actions.  What is the contribution?  Why does your character want to do this?  What conflicts does your character encounter when trying to do this? How do they get resolved?

Essay:  Write a short essay of 500 words or less about if you agree with the quote or not and state why you do or don't agree.

Poetry Prompt:  Write a poem about a contribution the universe is giving you today.  Maybe it is the gift of sunlight, time with a friend, the discovery of something beautiful, etc.
