April Showers bring May flowers they say.

Spring is the rebirth of Mother Nature as she sheds the gloom of winter and covers the earth in warmth and beauty.

Spring also brings out the cute and furry animals such as the cute fellow. The bunny appears to be admiring the flowers and the beauty of the colors while posing for the camera. That’s what I see…Wait hang on I seem to remember a story about a rabbit who was late for a date and girl named Alice. This could turn ugly at a moments notice.

Take ten minutes and write about what May’s Visual Writing Prompt says to you. Will it be a bright and cheerful story or one that will pull the readers down a rabbit hole.

When choosing a visual writing prompt for April this picture for some reason or another spoke to me.

Maybe because it has been a rough rough six weeks or more.

We pray everyone is doing fine a practicing social distancing.

Thais photo sums up the feelings of many I think, or does it. While some may see despair from having to ride out the storm alone others my see relief as the sun comes through the window. What do you see? Pass some time and write about what you see but most importantly what you feel.


About Writing Prompts

There are several reasons writing prompts are important. They help shake Writers Block, start the thought process for a piece of flash fiction, short story or novel. Some writers who are in between writing projects will us them as a writing exercise. They know writing everyday is a way to hone and keep their skills sharp.

Thee are two types of writing prompts. Written and visual. ThunderHorse Publishing uses the visual. Why?

We all see the picture, event or person. However how we process what we see is unique to each individual.

The Writing Prompt Game

The rules are simple. All you will need is a visual writing prompt, paper and writing instrument along with a group of friends. Each person has five minutes to write a short piece about what they see, what they think happened and what the outcome will be. The winner is the person with the best story that answered all the ‘W’ questions. Who, What, When and Why along with Where ?
