It has been a long time since I posted a #WritingWednesday post, but I’m hoping to get this series started back up and I hope you’ll decide to join me!
#WritingWednesday is all about using #WRITINGPROMPTS to spark creativity. Did you participate in the last #WritingWednesday challenge? It was about ‘Happiness or Success’. If you haven’t posted your response, click HERE so you can do that now. Then, make sure you check in here ~ every Wednesday ~ for the latest #WritingWednesday #WritingPrompt! Now, back to today’s regularly scheduled post…
Remember, #WritingWednesday is an EASY, STRESS-FREE, weekly writing challenge.
- Read the writing prompt below,
- Spend 5 minutes writing (in your own voice or the voice of a character you’re writing) whatever comes to mind,
- DON’T EDIT what you write! IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE PERFECT! (I know this one is hard for a lot of writers, but when we edit as we go, we can reduce creativity.)
The goal is 5 minutes of creativity.
Today, I’m writing in my own voice!
Today’s writing prompt:
If you could sit down and talk with someone from your past, alive or dead, who would it be and WHAT WOULD YOU ASK?
I don’t have a lot of regrets in life. I tend to live life one day at a time and recognize that some people are only in our lives for a short time while others are there for the long haul. However, the one regret I do have is not spending more time with my grandpa, in the years after my grandmother passed away. I was in college when she died and told myself that I didn’t live close enough to just pop in to see him. Nor did I have much time to do things other than work, school, theatre, etc. etc. etc.
I regret not making the time.
With that said, I would love to sit down and have a conversation with my grandpa. I’d ask him about the afterlife. I know, just before he passed, he had visions of my grandmother. I’m sure she was coming to take him with her to the other side and I’d love to find out how they’ve been spending their time together since their reunion.
Then, I’d tell him I love him and I miss him, because I don’t feel like I tell the people in my life that I love them often enough. I make sure my kids and my husband hear it every day, but I want to make sure all of my family and friends know they are in my heart every day.
