Writing prompt – what’s their story?

Moroccan women at the Mausoleum of Mohammed V in Rabat, Morocco

During our visit to the capital of Morocco we stopped briefly at the Mausoleum of Mohammed V in Rabat. This was one of many beautiful buildings we saw during our tour.

Just before we went inside, I took several photos of some Moroccan women talking. They were attired in what I assume was the standard of dress in that area.

Writing prompts:

  • What is their story?
  • Why have they come to visit the mausoleum?
  • What did Mohammed V mean to them?
  • Why is the little boy fascinated by me taking a photo of them?
  • Write a poem from the point of view of the curious little boy.
  • Write a short story from your point of view with a focus on the death of someone you admire, triggered by visiting this memorial.
  • Let your imagination fly in any direction as a result of seeing these photos.

Good writing.
