Writing Prompt #160

Today the writing prompt is an image. I may have used this one before, but it’s okay, because it’s a great one.


The artist is Daniel Maidman and I originally found the image on Pinterest.

When I came across it again today I discovered that it originally came from Paper Images.

I love the image – there is something about it that makes me ask questions about whomever those hands belong to.
There you have it – you might write your own questions about the hands, or create the character they belong to, or create a story about the artist, or. . .

Oh, just write!

Writing Prompt #159

I couldn’t decide today between a musical prompt and a ‘phrase from a book prompt’ so I went with both.

First an unusual music video, and then some random lyrics from a song. . .
watch and read and then write whatever comes to mind.

And I’d give up forever to touch you
Because I know that you feel me somehow
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be
And I don’t want to go home right now

Writing Prompt #158

In the northeast we’ve had a few days of very chilly wet weather.

Yet, today it looks as though the sun will once again make an appearance.

How will you celebrate and take advantage of the warmer and drier day today?

That’s it, that’s your prompt. Start writing!


Writing Prompt #157

grad cap

It is the time of year for graduations, making me think about transitions and change. While that subject alone might be enough of a prompt, I was feeling the need for something musical as well on this rainy morning. So, I’ve included the youtube video of a number of ‘graduation’ songs for your listening pleasure.

Feel free to go with any of these prompts to get you started writing about graduation (yours or others), transitions, change, hope, the future. . .

Writing Prompt #156

Today’s prompt is a celebration of the sounds of springtime in Vermont.

This recording comes from talented author and good friend, Tanya Sousa.

Listen and write. I hope that many sweet thoughts of nature, your connection with nature, visions of nature. . . all come together for some beautiful writing.
Perhaps it will inspire a haiku, a memory, a new story. Enjoy!
