It’s Thursday! Which means it my day to write about this week’s prompt over at The Today Voice.

Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm since we launched our new writing project in July. I especially appreciate those of you have taken time to comment on my posts over there and share your thoughts on the prompts each week here and/or there.

If this is the first you have heard about The Today Voice writing project, click here to read the back story and I how I got involved.

I never got around to sharing about last week’s prompt, so I will highlight both weeks’ prompts and posts here.


The prompt for last week was:

If you were really in trouble, who would you go to for advice?

This was an interesting prompt, as I when I first read it I had a hard time imagining “being really in trouble.” But when I thought about who I have gone to for advice throughout my life, especially during difficult and uncertain times, the question became easier for me to answer.

Here is a link to my tenth post as Thursday’s Voice:

The prompt for this week is:

Where were you when the world stopped turning, that September day?

We were originally going to write about a different topic this week, but when I realized that our eleventh week of writing The Today Voice would be falling the week of the eleventh anniversary of September 11, 2001, I contacted our editor, Peter Combs to suggest we veer from our plan and each write about our memories from and related to 9/11. He consulted with the other authors and everyone agreed.

I have shared my account of my experience on 9/11/01 here on my blog before, but appreciate the chance to revisit and share it again as my contribution to The Today Voice this week.
