Shelter and Write Prompt 14: Everything Changes


Think of one very small change that gives a window into life right now. It could be the coloring your toddler left on the wall since they are home all day, the seeds you just planted, the mountain of toilet paper at your sister’s house. 

Brainstorm everything that comes to mind when you think of this change: people, places, thoughts, feelings, etc. Write down everything that pops up in your mind when you think of the small detail. Where are the connections between this one small detail and other things in your life and your world?

Show us this change. Tell us about the colors, the textures, everything you notice about it as you look closely. Let us see it along with you. What do you notice about it? What is the history of this thing? What is its meaning to you?

Then, tell us why you noticed this particular change. What is it about this one small detail that has captured your attention? How does this thing connect to something larger happening in your life?

This post is part of a series I am doing that includes 30 prompts for 30 days of sheltering at home. You can read more about my reasoning and also find other prompts here. I would love to see what you come up with. Feel free to share here or to tag your work #shelterandwrite.
