Creative Writing Prompts Inspired by Willy Russell

Today is the birthday of English playwright and songwriter Willy Russell.  For writing inspiration, Willy Russell loved to listen in on conversations. In honor of Russell's birthday, we will do just that for writing practice.

Writing Practice: Listen in to a conversation at a cafe, park, or anywhere. Write out part of the dialogue, then finish it up the conversation with your own ideas, but with the voice of the people you were listening to.
Write out a conversation for any of the people from the picture.


Here is some inspiring quotes  for the day.  You can respond to one of them in writing any way you would like:  with a poem, essay or story.

Never part without loving words to think of during your absence. It may be that you will not meet again in this life.
Jean Paul Richter

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
Rabindranath Tagore
