"It has often been said that 'Ignorance is bliss,' and 'What you do't know won't hurt you' ' Do you agree with these statements?' Why or why not?"
Would you agree or wouldn't you? Why or why not? Can you cite other sources that say differently?
These are the kinds of questions this prompt should stimulate and even more. Write ideas, a list of words that might come in handy with the story, maybe a list of research material you might need.
Did this prompt help you? Why or why not? Were you able to identify with a character who would think this way? Please let me know in the comments below.
