New writing prompts

Sorry I fell behind. Extreme cold here has been bothering my sinuses and triggering migraines. But enough about that. Here are 5 prompts randomly pulled from my writing prompt pot.

1) the fake excuses . . .
2) Does your mother know?
3) This is what was left when he was gone . . .
4)Think of something you've always wanted to say to someone (living or dead) but that you felt you couldn't. Freewrite for 20 minutes, writing a letter to that person (you can use a fictional name if you'd like) and telling him/her that important message.
5)This one is especially for those of you who write fiction. First, work with a story you've already written, one whose characters need fleshing out. Write the character's name at the top of the page, then fill in this sentence 5 or 10 times: He/she is the sort ofperson who . . . . Determine which details could be "telling" details for you.
