Writing Prompt #4

Obsession List

This is one of my favs. It comes from Dramaturg and Artistic Director of nightswimming theatre, Brian Quirt.

Write down everything you’re obsessed with. Big, little, it doesn’t matter. Whatever is on the forefront of your mind. It can be in general or what you’re obsessed with today.

Once you have completed your list, take a quick glance and circle the first obsession (or first word) that jumps out at you. Let that be your starting point for a new short piece.

Brian will be teaching Playwriting and Dramaturgy at The Tarragon Theatre in January of 2015.
