Today's photo is "Twins Together" by Marilyn Barbone. Today's writing prompts have two steps, since we are focusing on "twos" today.
1. Time yourself for 5 minutes and make a list of things in life that come in twos. For example, here are a few things from my list:
Reese's peanut butter cups
2. a. Fiction Writing Prompt: Start a story with something from your list in the opening line.
Example: She was sure she hid the Reese's peanut butter cups in the best place ever, but when she went to retrieve them from the _________________________, they were gone.
b. Creative Nonfiction Writing Prompt: Pick one thing from your list that prompts a memory and write about it in relation to your life.
Example: I'll never forget the soft gray mittens my grandmother made for me. . .
c. Poetry Writing Prompt: Write a 14 line poem about one of the subjects.
