A Fiction Writing and Journal Prompt about sound to stretch the literary muscles. No rules. No word counts. Simply explore, write and create.
a sound, clear and unique despite the background noise, a pattern defined among the chaos
Writing Prompt Expanded
We all know what it is like to hear a sudden, new sound. When all is silent even the slightest noise can awaken our senses and put us on alert. However, the same is true when there is a lot of background noise. Our hearing notices the unique and different.
This prompt is all about sound, its description and the narrator’s response.
- What is the sound?
- Can you describe the sound using other senses?
- What is the reaction, the felt response to the sound?
The setting for this prompt could be anything. The same goes for whether you write in the first or third person or any other perspective. It could be a personal memory if you are writing in your journal, or it could be the beginning of a very scary story.
As always these writing prompts are optional and entirely open to your interpretation. Use them as a starting point for a short story, something a little more grandiose or a page in your journal. If you do write something, please share it or a link, in the comments, use the hashtag #ffwp or tag me. I’d love to read what you create. Write and enjoy the learning process.
