Do you have a good writing prompt to use in studying for the GED?

Asked by asmonet (21370points) June 4th, 2011

My roommate is studying for the GED but is really not doing well in the writing department. Our plan is to have a prompt for her every night so that she can work on a random essay for 45 mins and attempt to reach 250 words to start.

We’re running low on prompts – got any to share?

Here’s a ridiculously long list of essay prompts. Some of them might not be so relevant, but there’s so many (it’s 21 pages on my Word file) that there’s bound to be some that would work.

You get questions like:
– Name someone you consider to be a modern hero or heroine and explain why.
– How does your public image differ from your private self?
– If you could ban anything in the world, what would it be and why?
.. etc.

Actually, come to think about it, some of the fluther questions should be a good kick off point!

Awesome, thanks!

I’ve actually been pulling occasional questions from Fluther and compiling my own list for a while but it can be time consuming. And Google was starting to give me many repeats. I guess I missed this one!

Thanks again!

The Nanowrimo Young Writer’s has a dare machine that could be used for prompts.

The Nanowrimo Forums have a section for adoptables. These are “One of the most popular features of the NaNoWriMo forums are the adoptable threads. Participants will post superfluous ideas, plot twists, awesome titles they can’t use, or characters they’ve thought up but don’t fit in their novels.” She may find some interesting ideas there.
