The Family Narrative Project presents 25 writing prompts by critically-acclaimed author and founder of Freewrite Fridays, Dr. Darlene O’Dell. These prompts go beyond simply presenting a topic for writing; they will inspire you to write, will engage your talents in profound ways, and will make the writing process feel less overwhelming . . . and even a little less lonely.O’Dell shows how the most mundane activity—from opening a shower curtain to opening a closet—can be the material for epics or for that family tale that will live through history. Whether you are a professional writer, the daily journalist, or the family storyteller, these prompts will unlock your memories and fire up your imagination.
