Prompt: The definition of success.
If you are writing creative nonfiction, you might start with a list or by freewriting about your ideas of success.
If you're writing poetry, you might start by writing down the prompt and then letting yourself go with free associations, rhymes, half-rhymes, images, etc.
If you're working on fiction, think about one of your characters and how s/he would define success, either in a particular scene (this will help you understand your character's motivation in that scene) or for his/her life in general.
