How do I find creative writing prompts?

Descriptive writing

Describe one place that you remember from childhood. It might be a room, a house, a field, a tree fort, any place. What does it make you think of? Use your five senses to make the place come to life. What do you see? What does it smell like - freshly washed clothes, rotten eggs? When you are in this place, do you hear any sounds - birds chirping, cars honking? Let yourself go as you write in your journal and see what this becomes – is it just a snippet of memory, a scene from a story, the birth of a story itself? Have fun!
