Mockler's Writing Prompts: Windows
Make a list of 10 windows you remember looking in or out of.
Pick one and write down all the sensory associations you have with this window. Where is it located? What events do you remember taking place either inside or outside the window?
Using this brainstorming material, write a story, poem, or play.

WRITING PROMPT: DOORS
Make a list of 5 doors that you remember. They could be doors from home, work, friend's house, school, store, etc.
Pick one, and write down all of the sensory associations you have with this door: touch, smell, sight, sound, and, hey, maybe even taste—if you happened to have tasted your door.
Then write a short story about entering or exiting this door.
