And just like that we’ve gone from summer to fall. I could see the changes coming: the bean plants turning yellow and then brown; then, of course, that first colourful fallen leaf on the sidewalk. Despite these subtle signs, this year fall came suddenly, almost painfully. For that reason I thought it would be good therapy to do a prompt that could be used as a reminder of the wonderful things that come with the change in the season. As always, you are also encouraged to accentuate the negative if that’s the way you’d prefer to go.
Grow Write Guild Prompt #12: Describe fall in your garden in 5 to 10 words.
Further Notes and Questions:
- You can approach these words as a collection of descriptions, or make them work together as a short poem or even just one sentence.
- This prompt keeps it simple with just a few words, but you can also choose to take a few of those words and expand into a larger piece.
p.s. Please note that Grow Write Guild is now its own category. This should make it a little easier to find in the future. And in keeping with the new site design, there is a new, wider banner available in the right sidebar.
Now that we’re a few months into this project I’d like to get some feedback from you on the prompts. Do you like the mix of short, simple prompts and long “thinkers?” Have you found the Further Notes and Questions portion useful/insightful/unnecessary?
