Tis this season to resolve. Since most of you are resolving to write more, we thought today's writing prompt could help. Craft a list of unusual resolutions, invented or real. Let them be a jumping off point--for a poem, a new short story, an essay--or perhaps the list is the story.
If you are working on a nonfiction or scholarly piece--did your subject make any resolutions? Could you imagine what their list may have included? Was there such a tradition in the time/country/culture in which your story takes place? Alternatively, make a list of resolutions for your project (I will use fewer adverbs. I will research 17th century weaponry. I will write every morning. I will avoid jargon).
If you need a bit of inspiration, check out this great list of unusual resolutions including my favorites from Woody Guthrie: "Don't get lonesome. Stay glad. Keep hoping machine running. Dream Good"
