Writing Prompt: Longing

Hello, fellow creative juice seekers! You may have noticed I disappeared for several months. The truth is I let the longing for a significant upcoming date (April 7, 2014) put my life on hold. Yesterday I realized…I will always feel longing, and instead of counting down until that date, I need to cherish each day as it comes.

With that introduction, I invite you now to write about one of your characters. What is he or she longing for? How is this deep longing affecting your character in the present? How would your character’s life change by letting go of this longing?

Your character becomes emotional after reading the letter. What was your character looking for in the closet? Who is the letter from? What does it say? What is its significance to your character? Show how your character is feeling.

Writing Prompt: Points of View at the Zoo

Happy Writing Wednesday, friends! Time for a fun writing prompt to get your creative juices flowing. Choose the zoo animal you find most interesting, give the animal a name, and write from the animal’s point of view. Otters are my favorite, so here’s a pair of cute otters begging for a story.
