I’m working on a short piece of writing about a childhood tradition to submit to an anthology. It’s done, except I feel I’m not conveying the heart of it. This afternoon, I asked myself “Why was this so special?” After this blog post, I’m going to look at my story again, and try to dig up the “but why” that made this tradition so meaningful.
Writing Prompt: Using something you have written, pull out an excerpt, and answer the question, “But why?”
Just write and see where this takes you.
