Welcome to week five (5) of the re-opening of Writer’s Island. This week will mark the beginning of the 2nd month back on the Island. It has been great seeing so many of our Islanders, former and new, coming ashore to share their writing.
Remember, new prompt(s) every Saturday, and to make it easy this time around, when what you’ve written is ready to read by the other Islanders, just post your link right here at the bottom of this post — no waiting, no looking for a different place to post your link, and you can leave a comment as a part of your posted link. You can now also reply directly to any other comment.
••> For the 5th re-opening celebration prompt we are going to have a special prompt, inspired by the long-running movie playing here on Writer’s Island, over at the Island Sun Cinema. This will be our first Matinée Muse prompt since returning to the Island.
The prompt this week is: BLIND SIDE, from the movie of the same name…
• Perhaps someone, or something, or someplace just caught you completely by surprise. • Or something happened that you never saw coming. • Or you made something happen or created a situation that was a complete surprise to others. • Or maybe you are inspired by the human interest story of the movie — • unexpected opportunity for someone, • greatness coming from an unexpected place, • or unexpected manifest compassion. • Or….
Tell us in your words (poem, prose, flash fiction) the why, who, what, where, when, or how regarding the unexpected — whatever moves you to write. Maybe it includes a visual response? It’s your thing — so do wha’cha wanna…
Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi! Again, welcome back to the the Island. I’m going to go toss the football with some of the Islanders. Come on with us, or go have yourself a nice cool drink of choice, and let’s all enjoy!!!
