Writing Prompt Expanded
I love it when it rains. I find my senses turn to overdrive. Being able to stand outside as the rain falls is one of life’s pleasures. If I stand outside barefoot and let my feet and toes feel the wet ground it is even better. And a little rain brings all the smells to life, no longer dead and dry, now alive and rejuvenated.
Use this prompt to describe how the rain brings everything back to life. Be as descriptive as possible. And try to use similes and metaphors to give your writing new life.
- How does the rain affect your senses?
- What sound does it make?
- What can you smell?
- Are you standing outside as the rain falls?
You can write in the first or third person. Use your character, or characters, to describe the scene. You could explore why the rain is welcome, a little back story is always helpful.
As always these writing prompts are optional and entirely open to your own interpretation. Use them as a starting point for a short story or something a little more grandiose. If you do write something, please share it or a link, in the comments or tag me. I’d love to read what you create,
