Oh the power, the joy, of story. Today’s prompt is…a story within a story.
When do we tell stories? Write down a few ideas (before bed, at weddings etc etc)
Why do we tell them? (to entertain, to connect/build community, to remember etc etc)
You might even want to write them down on paper scraps, fold them up, and then pick one from each pile; the When? pile, the Why? pile.
Using those ideas, thoughts, write a story (or poem) in which someone is telling a story.
If you need more input, follow this link to a more detailed explanation from the archive, when I used this prompt in a writing group, including my response.
Ready? Steady! Write! 🙏❤️
