Sea Glass Writing Prompt for Bereaved Families:
A symbol that reminds me of my deceased child is…
Like parents of living children who decorate their child’s nursery or bedroom in a theme, bereaved parents often associate a specific symbol or theme with their deceased child. What is this symbol for you? Do you associate your child with a specific animal? Cartoon character? Color? Song? How did you choose this item? How do you use or honor or incorporate this symbol into your life today?
About Sea Glass Writing Prompts
Sea Glass Writing prompts are designed as free-writing exercises. You can start with the phrase or the questions listed here, or with anything that these questions prompt in your mind. You can even go in a different direction entirely; there is no defined structure. Write what feels right for you.
When finished, you can share your response in the private Sea Glass Parenting Writers Forum, on your own social media account or blog, or even in the comments of this post here.
You can also check out the formal Sea Glass Writing course: 26 days of prompts, activities, and community with fellow bereaved parents. The next course is tentatively scheduled for August 2022.
