This prompt is inspired by Ianthe Brautigan from her Writers Forum workshop.
Draw a circle with radiating arms, ending in circles (see below).
In the center circle, write a note about a watershed moment where nothing was the same after that: A pivotal moment.
Write details on the radiating circles. Include as many circles as you want for details.
Write into the questions . . . how did this moment shape me? How did this affect the rest of my life?
Use this prompt to spark a freewrite.
When you are finished with freewriting on this prompt, if you keep a journal, use that for details to flesh out the story.
