Write Now! Persuasive Writing Prompts:
Your Major Marker Event
Practice your copywriting skills with this prompt from The Professional Writers’ Alliance (PWA).
In this Write Now! exercise, you’ll connect with a major life event.
In this video by leader, coach, facilitator Ted Capshaw learn how to get in touch with emotions resulting from a major event in your life. Use those emotions to tell a story. (Or read the transcript below.)
Every one of us has marker events that have happened to us in our life. A marker event is something that happens to us that changes the way we approach things; changes the way we think about things.
Today, I want you to think about a major marker event in your life and I want you to write about it. So think back to something that really had an impact on your life. It could be a loss of a loved one. It could be that you moved across the country. Or you decided to not go to college. Anything like that, think about something that really had a major impact on your life. And I just want you to write down specifically what that event was and then also think about what kind of feelings were evoked in it. And then ultimately, I want you to end with this writing piece with how did it really change the way you think and/or approach life?
