Memory Writing Prompts
This series of writing prompts will help bring childhood memories to the surface. I have found this sort of writing helpful with fiction, memoir, and even poetry. Once I start writing about a certain memory, it triggers more memories which triggers even more memories, and well, you get the idea. After you have some concrete items in your memory pool you can try searching for images that represent them. Again, looking at the picture can trigger another bout of remembering.
These are not designed to be done in any particular order so jump in and have fun.
