Writing Prompt: Unpacking

It has been a while since I’ve written anything here and for that, I apologise. It has been a busy month, between moving house and moving cities, it takes time to find a routine and get one’s bearings. So, after over a month of inactivity (on the blog), here I am.

Today I’d like to discuss change, not just how it affects you, but how the decisions you make affect the lives of others. My decision to move has affected my friends, my family, work colleagues, my cat. It’s a lot of pressure, but you need to follow your instincts and my instincts were telling me that whatever the risk, I needed to do it. I need to take a chance and roll the dice on my future, divert from the plan, no matter how scary.

Write about a significant change in your life. How did it affect the people around you? As alternative, write about a character that moves house and finds something they forgot they had in their cardboard boxes. If you’re still stuck, write a list of all of the major decisions you’ve made in your life (moving house, picking a university, meeting someone unexpected, quitting your job) and pick one. Once you have, write about some of the ripples it caused.
