Shelter and Write Prompt 17: Write a Letter to Your Old Self


Write a letter to yourself 3 months ago. 

Think about the changes that have happened since 2020 began. What were your thoughts, hopes, and experiences at that time? How have things changed since then? What are the things you didn’t expect? What would you want to tell yourself from back then? Would you make different preparations? Try to be in a different place? Would you savor something just a little bit more?

This also works well for an imagined character. What would they want to say to themselves? What would they do differently?

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.
