Here are some ideas to consider

Recall comically bad advice you’ve been given

Recall bad advice that you have taken and speak frankly of the outcomes

Recall bad advice that you have given and speak frankly of the outcomes

Recall advice that you didn’t take but in hindsight should have

Recall the best piece of advice you were ever given and describe how it transformed your life and/or perspective

Give advice to a loved one, to the government, to society, to an organization you feel is in desperate need of change such as the school system or the medical healthcare system

    I’ve linked to a post I wrote recently after being asked for advice on a serious topic. Now I don’t know if the government is very good at working it out for themselves 😀 but I think people are.

    A wonderfully open prompt. I’m afraid I went more fiction that fact on advice. But that’s often me, lol.

        Thank you!
        These days, I seem to write much more fiction than fact, lol.

        Thank you! Encouraging thoughts from a wordsmith such as yourself are very much appreciated. It’s nice to know that the inner writing/working of my “not quite right” brain have some value other than telling myself stories to distract.

      I tell myself lots of stories too but I never write them down I think mine all become x-rated lol
