Today, Stuart Horwitz invites us to a bit of self-reflection.
Think back to a time earlier in your life, maybe high school, when you knew a good person with whom you have fallen out of touch.
If you were to reconnect with this person right now, what one question would you ask them? Why are you asking that question — what does it say about your journey right now?
What piece of yourself are you currently focused on finding?
For memoir writers: write this now.
For fiction writers: turn yourself and your friend into characters. Write the story of their encounter.

One thought on “Self Reflection – a writing prompt from Stuart Horwitz”
This sounds like a promo I’d use in my writing class. But more challenging. I’m going to mull this one over.
