Writing Prompt: Moving Day

Have you ever moved house? It can be challenging and said to be one of the most stressful things you can do, right up there with starting a new job and divorce..

I’m going to be moving house soon and to prepare, I’ve been going through my things and getting rid of anything I’m not likely to need when I go. It’s a good way to get all of the clutter out of the house in advance.

What I have found is that as I have been going through this process, I’ve been discovering all sorts of things I forgot I had, old unread books, keepsakes, perfectly serviceable shoes and other bits and bobs.


Try this, go through some of the things you have stashed in your house. See if you find anything you forgot you had. If it is an ordinary object, try writing about how it ended up neglected. If it’s an old keepsake, described how you got it. It would be more interesting to stick to an old gift, photo or something you acquired with other people.
