By Michelle Lynn Senters
Writing Prompt of the Day
1. IMAGINE: During a recent visit to your Great Aunt, you snuck away from your family to explore her grand, old house. A long stairway took you to the attic, which contained furniture, trinkets, toys, books, and clothing from long ago. Something caught your eye…
2. QUESTION: Why did you notice it? What was the object and what was it for? Where did you find it? Did you touch it? Did anything unusual happen? How did you physically/emotionally feel when you found it? Did you keep it a secret or did you talk to someone about it?
3. WRITE a paragraph detailing the object and the moment you found it. Make your writing so vivid and real that the reader will feel like they are there, experiencing it with you.
5. CHECK-IN: In the comment section below, share your first name, age, state, and country. Share your “Attic Treasure” paragraph.
