Writing Prompt based on Grace (eventually)

I hope you enjoy this nonfiction writing prompt based on Grace (eventually) by Anne Lamott.

Think of a situation when you had no choice but to relinquish control. Write about it. In whose hands did you leave the power and why? Were you reluctant to do so? How did you feel and what did you do immediately after?


After you’ve written about your no-control situation, think about a time you escaped from your daily routine or a busy/stressful day. What did you think about or realize during this time away? Weave this moment into your original piece of writing. How does it affect the mood/theme of the piece? Do you like the changes? Are the moments related? If not, what makes them work well together?

*Please share your writing with me if you complete the prompt! 🙂
