Creative Prompt: Summer Romance


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: Summer Romance

There’s something uniquely bittersweet about summer romance. It begins quickly: no time to waste on the subtleties of courtship. It burns hotter: no barriers like school or sweaters to overcome. It ends: inevitably, and its destiny makes its existence so much more tragic. heart-clouds Our summer places are temporary and so our relationships, adventures, and emotions are, too. We are in transition and our summer romances are just a microcosm of a much longer journey.

Get Creative!

Write your short piece, flash fiction, poetry, or a memoir, about the anxious beginning, blazing hot middle, or necessary ending of a summer romance. Each stage has its own unique magic. Then publish your work on your site and leave a link here. Or, put your piece in the comments below.
