Describe an Awkward First Date star
Take the following text writing prompt: Describe AN awkward first date. Notice how it does not say, “Describe YOUR most awkward first date.” The secret to a successful text prompt is to make the wording a bit loose and open-ended so you are not limited to your own experiences
