This week’s prompt is here, and its mission is to spread the happiest of happy vibes. We’re all about the positivity here, and we wanted to kick things off this week with a truckload of it.
From a writing skills perspective, we’re going to use this one to work on our emotive writing. Really hone those metaphors and similes in a way that paints a beautiful picture and pulls at the reader’s heartstrings.
This is a useful thing to get the hang of – even if you aren’t a poet.
As with everything else in poetry writing, once you master this, you can apply it to your short stories and novels – or any writing of that style. Including poetic passages in these types of work can really engage the reader and draw their attention to a particular character dynamic or scene description.
Scenery/Vibe: The park. On the swings. The sky is bright and so are the smiles. It’s your happy place. It’s that way for both of you.
Poems’s Message: If the sky and smiles are equally bright, what do you have to worry about?
Try this prompt for size and create something based on it. If you do write something, please share it with us in one way or another. Tag us in a post, post it in the comments, send it to us in an email – we’d love to read your work.
Who knows? If you send something our way and we really like the way you write, we might just offer you a discount on our editing services. Or we might even edit a few chapters for free. It’s worth a try on your part.
