Writing Prompts

1. When do you feel most separate from others? Can this sense of alienation be remedied? Why or why not? Be specific.

  • What triggers your feelings of alienation? Is it fear, is it pride?
  • As a child did you find more safety in connection or disconnection?
  • Do you believe that isolation is part of being human?

2. Do you view your life as an experiment, a celebration, an uphill battle, an act of faith, or some combination thereof? How does this affect your choices? Be specific.

  • What might change in your life if you changed to a different metaphor?
  • Is your metaphor conducive to happiness?
