In this writing prompt, we’re going to ask you to imagine you're an 85-year-old person who’s lived a good, rich, long life, and you’ve got advice to share with your 22-year-old granddaughter who’s just graduated from college.
What advice would you want to give her?
What kinds of things have you experienced in your many years, the different stories and different learnings that you want to pass along to her?
Think about these now as seven emails.
Write seven different email stories, with seven pieces of advice that you want to pass along to your granddaughter.
And then, take that format and apply it to a client you’re working with. What are seven stories you can write for them, with seven pieces of advice about their products or services?
It’s a great way to practice writing.
