A Fiction Writing Prompt exploring the word grow to stretch the literary muscles. No rules. No word counts. Simply write and explore.
I didn’t know if it was a plea, prayer or premonition, but the word left my lips as I saw the first shoot… ‘grow’
Writing Prompt Expanded
Waiting for something to happen can be frustrating. It can test our patience. However, this prompt is about the next step. The waiting is over, there is progress, something is happening.
This prompt is all about expectation and need. You know what you want to grow, but there is plenty of time between emergence and fruition.
- What are you wanting to grow?
- What new emotions emerge as the process begins?
- What are your hopes?
- What are your fears?
The image suggests that it is a plant you want to grow, however, feel free to use this prompt as a metaphor. There are many things that we would like to grow, relationships, success, well-being, healing. Any of these can be explored in your fiction, or in your journal. And may your words emerge and grow into something creative.
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 some reflective time in your journal. If you do write something, please share, or mention it or a link, in the comments, use the hashtag #ffwp or tag me @darrenrhill. I’d love to read what you create. Write and enjoy the learning process.
