Week #25 prompt: Threshold

Welcome to Writer’s Island.

As you may or may not know, this is the second to last week that Writer’s Island will be open and offering writing prompts — at least in the foreseeable future. So while we are still here, please consider this prompt in depth, then 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 #25 prompt for 2011, the penultimate Writer’s Island prompt, is “THRESHOLD”. Tossed in a little 3D image I made for fun.

Think of the many meanings of this word: • the plank, stone, or piece of timber that lies under a door or a gate; • the end or boundary, such as the end of a runway or dock; • the place or point of entering or beginning; • the outset, such as the threshold of a new age; • the point at which a physiological or psychological effect begins to be produced, such as the threshold of pain; • a point or value above which something is true or will take place, and below which it is not or will not; • or the brink, cusp, edge, point, or verge of something… these are a few of the meanings.

Whether you use the actual word or not, meditate on the word threshold, 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!!! ;)
