Following on from Sunday's prompt, let's try this:
If you had to pick one word to sum up 2021, what would it be?
Maybe it's a word to sum up your personal experiences, or a word to sum up global experiences (shitshow comes to mind)... but see if you can choose a word.
Then write a little about why you've chosen that word. Think about why it might be true... and also why it might not be true.
You could try looking at it from a different point of view: what would someone else's word be? Why?
Set your timer for 5 minutes and think on paper.
