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. 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.
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.
