The old item of clothing, unworn for many months perhaps longer, contained memories like a journal
But what memories? A fiction writing prompt that uses a prompt itself. The prompt is an item of clothing. I deliberately gave as much choice as possible, it could be any item, the choice is yours. As are the memories it evokes in your piece of fiction: happy, sad, fond, unwelcome?
How does the look and feel, the texture, draw these memories from the depths like a fish on a hook?
The choice of length and subject is, as always, yours. Feel free to embellish or edit the prompt. The one rule for a Friday Fiction Writing Prompt… write.
