Get Your Write On

Let’s get this writing train rolling with some prompts. Prompts are a great way to loosen up your creativity. They’re stretches for your brain. With these or any prompts, try to break out of your comfort zone. Write in a genre you typically don’t or practice writing dialog, scenes with all five senses, etc.
The ivy vine creeps closer to my bedroom window. Day after day, closer.
Is it so hard to do what I’m asking of you? I mean, really, is it?
I’m not too sure about our new neighbors.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, “It’s just burgers and fries man.”
The mist rolled in early across the fields. In the murky gray I could hear a lonely frogs call.
Who do I need to impress? You? That’s laughable.
Would you participate in a naked bike ride? Why or why not?
When nothing but being Fabulous will do.
Where does your Boogie Man hide?
Panic set in when I realized the Tequila was all gone.
I think these ten prompts will do for now. Have a great week and happy writing

Today’s Prompt – Thank you

My Attempt

Thank you

Thank you for coming on this journey with me

We’ve had some great fun

Getting goose bumps to saving the world

To grabbing some deep fried goodness

Stopping to Read Writer Poetry

That was a delightful stop along the way

Sharing my big ol bag of candy

And realizing matching socks are really over rated

Discovering things together

Experiencing the bugs, hugs and things so new

Wishing that this fairytale of a journey would never end

Relaxing in the shade, drinking damn good lemonade

But tell me the truth

Have you had fun too?

All the observations that’s shaped this trip

Things at night which could have given me a fright

But there were the people who cared

Singing praises of the paradise we have found

Thank you

 

Well there you have it. My attempt at Thank you.
