Tuesday prompt time
This is more of a change in perspective than an actual topic prompt. What I suggest you do is go sit someplace where you don't usually go to write. In my class, I have my students sit on the table or beneath it or face a corner. How many teachers ask you to sit on their tables (none that I know of, unless you are in my classroom)? Each of my students find something to write about because it is such an unexpected place to be. But you could sit behind your couch, or underneath the porch swing or in a tree, behind the rose bush or under your bed. Sure some of you are saying, "Done that." So find your own out-of-the-norm place and see what comes to mind and out those fingers. If you have trouble coming up with something, write about "going sideways."
