Weekly Writing Exercise: Summer Days

Hello all, and welcome back to my weekly writing prompt!

Sorry about the delay but hopefully people are still craving some new writing ideas for practice! This week I was thinking we would try and keep things short and sweet with an easy prompt.

If you can’t tell by the title, I believe we should all take a moment and just write about something we love about summer. This can be anything that your heart desires. Just make sure it has to do with relates to the season.

For example: if you’re like me, you absolutely hate cold weather. I would much rather sweat daily than stand out in the cold for over five minutes. So write a classic story of heat prevailing over ice.

Also, don’t forget that anything you write does not necessarily have to be fiction. For me, it is my area of expertise and I love writing narratives, but that doesn’t have to be for you.

If you prefer poetry, write something poetic about how swimming in a pool with friends and family makes you feel loved. If you’d rather write non-fiction, just tell your audience about something fun you’ve done one summer.

These writing prompts are here to help you practice your writing craft, no matter what it may be. So what are you waiting for? Quit reading and get writing about summer!

Weekly Writing Exercise: Weather

Hello everyone! It’s that early time of the week again where I force everyone that reads my blog to consider doing a bit of writing. For many people that read this blog, the death throughs of summer are upon us as autumn tries to claw desperately into the limelight, bringing promises of pumpkin spice, colored leaves, and of course spooky time events.

The reason I’m bringing all of this up is because I absolutely love autumn. Besides my birth month (October) being encompassed by this season, it also brings on cooler weather and my personal favorite type of drink, apple cider. However, that is neither here nor there.

No, as much as I would like to continue talking about myself and about fall, it is time to get onto this week’s writing prompt. What I think would be fun to do for any writer reading this is to to write a short piece about your favorite season and the weather that corresponds with it. Maybe you love summer and the hot 90 degree days that come with it. Could it be you love spring, a season that breaks from the icy death of winter and brings blooming flowers and warmer weather with it. Maybe instead you love winter, when time finds a way to stand still when snow gently falls.

No matter what, write a bit about your favorite season and the weather that takes place in it. The goal of this prompt is to really make your reader feel like they’re experiencing your favorite weather and season all at once. As always, I will be giving my take on the prompt, and if you haven’t pieced it together yet, mine will definitely be singing the praises of autumn and why it’s clearly the most superior season of them all.

Now get to writing!
