A Fiction Writing Prompt to stretch the literary muscles. No rules. No word counts. Simply write and explore.
White fluffy clouds drift gently across the azure sky. The sight transports me back at once. The memory, as vivid as the heavens.
Writing Prompt Expanded
Sights and sounds, tastes and smells, and touch sensations are powerful. They can bring back memories long-forgotten, both good and bad.
This prompt allows you to explore how seeing the clouds in the sky brings back a memory. As the memory is vivid allow yourself to explore the other senses.
- What can you hear?
- What can you smell?
- Is there an associated taste?
- What do you feel, underfoot, fingertips or somewhere else?
Although you can draw on your own memories I would advise not using this prompt to remember your own past. That could bring up painful and other negative thoughts. So please be careful. These prompts are for you to enjoy and develop your writing ability, not work through serious trauma. Please find someone who can help you if you need it.
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
