Welcome to Writer’s Island.
ANNOUNCEMENT: It has been such a pleasure offering writing prompts since 2007. I’ve ‘met’ some wonderful Islanders in that time, and had the joy to read some great work. But I have been struggling with health lately, and that has introduced some additional challenges into my life. I love to write, and given my current circumstances, I am not able to give my best to my writing, and to Writer’s Island — so it is with heavy heart indeed that I must close the Island, at least for now. The final Writer’s Island prompt of the foreseeable future will publish on Saturday, June 25th, 2011.
I truly hope what I am saying is “until later”, and not farewell — but only time will tell. Please know my wishes are, for each of you, that you always have fair skies, calm seas, and a gentle breeze at your back. Now, please consider this week’s prompt in depth, and as in the past, let inspiration carry you.
When you feel what you’ve written is ready to be read by the other Islanders, just post your link right here in the comments section at the bottom of this post. Please leave whatever expanded comment you wish as a part of your posted link. You can also reply directly to any other comment.
••>The Week #24 prompt for 2011 is “INCOMPARABLE”.
Think of the many meanings of this word, for example: • beyond compare, • inimitable, • unmatched, • nonpareil, • peerless, • unequaled, • unparalleled, • unrivaled, • unsurpassed — these to name a few.
Whether you use the actual word in your piece, or not — meditate on incomparable, then let it spark your muse… or choose to go in your own direction with your piece this week. Just let yourself go with whatever it is that moves you to write.
Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi! As always, welcome to the the Island!!!
