Welcome to Wordsmith Studio’s Weekly Prompt!
Every Thursday we’ll post a new topic for your creative pleasure. When you get a good flash story, memory, poem, or photo (or three, or five) post them to your blog, website, Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. Then come back here and post a link to your contribution(s) in the comments.
This Week’s Theme is: Milestones
Milestones are the way we mark the end of one thing and the beginning of another. Like the end of summer and the beginning of school. A new grade level or a new job. A wedding, a divorce, or the birth of a child. We say things like, “That was before…” and use the milestone to mark the passage of time.
What milestones occur in August? Summer swim team has ended. Children come home from camp. Back to school frenzy begins. Maybe you still have a vacation left or are anxiously awaiting the NFL preseason.
Think about where you were last August and what achievements you’ve logged since then. What milestones are you reflecting on? Maybe, “It’s been a year since…” or “That was over a year ago.”
Do you have suggestions for future “Prompt” posts? Leave us a comment, or email us here. We ♥LOVE♥ feedback!
Be sure to check back next week for more fun and new inspiration.
