Write Now! Persuasive Writing Prompts:
How Do You Want to Be Remembered?
Practice your copywriting skills with this prompt from The Professional Writers’ Alliance (PWA).
With this Write Now! prompt, sit down and think long and hard about your legacy.
Success coach, Ted Capshaw, wants you to figure out how it is you want to be remembered. What do you want your friends and family to miss most about you when you’re no longer with them. (Or read the transcript below.)
Today, I want you to write about yourself. And it’s going to be more difficult than you think. The reason I say that is that we spend our entire lives building relationships with other people. And unfortunately, I don’t think we really build relationships with self, meaning ourselves.
So today, I want you to write it down. How do you want to be remembered? And I don’t want you to think that that's a dismal thought. But I really want you to think about and write down. What is your legacy going to be? What do you want people to remember you as? What things do you want people to be saying? What do you want your children, your grandchildren, et cetera, et cetera to be saying about you when you’re no longer here?
Now that's a deep thought, but I really want you to spend time to write down in detail how do you want to be remembered.
