Prompt/Cope 7.22.18: “Flashbacks”

Write a poem or story in which you move back and forth in time.  Flashback to a past situation (good or bad) and come back to the present.  What happened then?  How does it affect you now?  Or does it affect you now?  What metaphorical trope will you use?  For example, will you use something in nature to compare this situation to?  Did the situation involve you and somebody else?  Or just you?  If it was just you, consider creating a “past” you and a “present” you as if you’re communicating with yourself.   Explore, imagine, be adventurous in your writing and how the structure of the piece reflects the situation.  (David Welper, Founder/EIC)   #Keep writing…  #StigmaFree  #Zines

Ever wish you could be in more than one place at once? Write something imaginative about it! There are multiple versions of you and each one is texting each other. Have fun. But remember to unwind and take care of you! (David Welper). #buddykeepwriting
