Memoir Writing Prompt: Knock, Knock. Who’s there?

Where did that expression ever originate? Many of our everyday sayings we use were first spoken or written by the great bard himself, William Shakespeare. We don’t know his actual birthday, but because he was baptized on April 26, 1564 and died on April 23, 1616, England has dubbed his birthday to be April 23.

Have you ever gone on a “wild goose chase”? Shakespeare. “As luck would have it” the kids came to call the other day and have “eaten me out of house and home.” Shakespeare. Sometimes, I feel as though I have gone “full circle” in discussions with my husband, but I “refuse to budge an inch.” We all know that “jealousy is the green-eyed monster” but “in my mind’s eye,” and with “one fell swoop,” we can “kill with kindness” and offer the “milk of human kindness.”

Memoir Writing Prompt: Do you remember a favorite saying of a parent or grandparent? My grandmother used to say “bugs a bitin” all the time—usually when she didn’t believe some story I had just told her. Write about one of those sayings from a relative or friend in your childhood days.

Today’s Writing Prompt: Is there a favorite expression you or your spouse use? When and in what situation do you use it?

Enjoy writing for your generations to come.
