This is one section from a sheet of prompts inspired by the children's book Wilfred Gordon Macdonald Partridge, by Mem Fox. This was as challenging a prompt I've responded to over the past few years. The colors of the blanket is still burned in my my memory.

During a conference with a student today, she showed me her writer's notebook--the one she keeps on her own for herself outside of school. When I asked if she ever flips through it, she said, "all the time."
After the conference, I realized that I do not flip through my notebooks as much as I ought to. When I had a moment, I found this chart. Composed with my classes several years ago, I am chuckling to myself as I realize that nothing has changed! I still agree with every single choice. It may be time to break this gem out again with my current students to see what they create and then write about.
