As a continued effort to write more, and maybe inspire others to write in the process – I am going to be posting writing prompts here and there. Feel free to use this prompt, or others – found under the WRITE LIFE category tag.

* The above image is a painting called “Madame Mazois On Her Deathbed” by Henri Regnault.



An old person lies very close to death. You are there in their last moments, and they relay some poignant events from their younger days as a sort of confession, taking comfort in your presence. What images and scenes do they describe to you?


Check back often for more writing prompts. As always, feel free to share results if you end up writing something.

Happy writing!
