Linkup and Flicker of Inspiration Prompt #12: Your First Memory

Welcome to another Flicker of Inspiration Link Up! I hope everyone had a great week. I’m super-excited to see what you all came up with for this week’s prompt. This “Sea of Yellow” photo prompt was close to my heart, because the photo was taken by my dear friend Whitney of her sweet little boy playing in a field of yellow wildflowers. I know I found her sweet shot incredibly inspiring, and I can’t wait to see how everyone responded to it!

If you need a reminder, here’s what the picture looked like:

Please link up your prompt responses below. If you participate in the link up, remember to try to visit and thoughtfully comment on at least three other responses. The prompt will be available until Wednesday at midnight Eastern. Oh, and to help our community grow, we’d love if you grabbed one of our buttons in the sidebar, shared us on Twitter, or liked us on Facebook.

Flicker of Inspiration Prompt# 12: Your First Memory

This week’s prompt is going to give us all a chance to stretch our creative nonfiction muscles. We’d like for you to write about your first memory. Reach way back into your mind, try to find that first, earliest memory, and share it with us through your words. The key to this prompt is the creative in the nonfiction. Don’t just tell us what you remember, show us, make us feel what you felt, take us with you back to that first clear (or hazy) memory of your past. Write your memory in 600 words or less and come back next Sunday to share it!
