Use the writing assignments as prompts to get you in the habit of writing regularly. For each topic, write between 500 and 750 words (more, if the ancestors are really speaking to you!), unless otherwise noted. There will be a new Writing Assignment posted each month.

Save your writings in a folder or file on your computer so you can refer to them from time to time. You’ll be surprised at the progress you make along the way, and at how your stories will naturally come together.

Please share your thoughts, triumphs, and challenges related to these assignments in the member chat area.

#102016 – Describe your greatest apprehension to writing. Tell a story about an incident (as a child or adult) that discouraged you from writing. Or, explain why you haven’t written consistently up to this point. Keep this one brief; 300 words should do.


These short video lessons and accompanying worksheets are designed to help you improve your writing and storytelling ability. Watch the lesson and follow along (or complete) the worksheet.
