Perpetual Prompt

Perpetual prompt, sometimes called Continuous Writing, is a tool that often leads people to surprising discoveries. That is because the act of repeating the same prompt over and over can force us to dig deeper, rather than responding with the first, second, or third thing that comes to mind. Follow along with John as he introduces Perpetual Prompt, shares a prompt with you to work with, and guides you through the process of engaging with the theme for five minutes. The theme in this version is about where you come from, and can reveal interesting notions of memory, identity, and even origin stories.
