WRITER’S LINK: “The Journey”

Hello Islanders!

It’s Tuesday, 12:01 AM on the U.S. east coast. As promised, here is the post to which you can submit your links in the comments section. Remember, only post the link to your work here — as a ‘comment’, and please make certain your link is accurate.

If you’re new, welcome — all the details of ‘How To Come Ashore’ are posted in the sidebar. If you’ve returned, we’re all glad to see you again!

Writers Island is your island. Please feel free to let us all know what you want and need on the island to make it a nurturing experience. Your suggestions will be submitted to the island community for consideration.

This week’s prompt is about exploration and discovery — the seductive call of the horizon, of the great ‘beyond’. Did you take us on a journey through the material world, or into the mind? Which ever, it is leaving time.

So join your fellow islanders’ as we embark on, “The Journey”.

The weather as usual is beautiful here on the island, and the breeze is cool… a great night for a trip! So please, relax, express yourself, and let these cool breezes carry your words.

EXPLORE — fellow islanders! Enjoy the experience… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    happy Tuesday all!

  7. Hi everyone,

    This is a story that I posted on Sunday and is the beginning to a potential novel. I am curious to see if this is something you’d be interested in reading. It’s called ‘Winter’s Haze’.




  8. A journey of sorts. I’ve posted an essay of what I plan for the next six months. It will be very interesting to see what comes true and what remains a dream.

    Here’s a holiday that turned into a journey of exploration of the mind and its beliefs, in this case my mind and my beliefs –


  10. Good morning, all! This week I have two pieces to share. Here is one that I wrote ten years ago, and when I saw the writing prompt, I knew I would share it. And here is the one that I wrote this week, a bit of a love poem, I guess.

    Happy Tuesday! I can’t wait to go read everyone’s work!


  11. Here’s the first part of a road trip journey.


    The second half is right below it.

  12. Here’s a link to my poem, a journey to the past. Happy Tuesday!

    Here’s a persona poem about a character’s journey. Enjoy!

  15. Here’s my take on the prompt:
    The Journey

  16. Ashley Lyn

    Happy Tuesday, all! Here’s a reflection/poem about a journey to South Africa, “The Queen of Soweto.”


  17. This prompt sent me on an unexpected journey. Here’s my offering:

    drinking beer with bob dylan


  18. My Nyquil induced attempt…bear with me, I’m sick this week. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    my poem

    Love You All,Melanie-bd

  21. I wrote this before knowing the prompt. It is a journey of sorts, I think. Afterschool, First of October

  22. Hello, Journeymen (and women). I’m up at My Uncle Pepek’s Journal. Drop by if you have a minute!


  23. Whew! I had some computer issues this morning, but mine for this week is finally up – On Travel

  24. Here is my reflection on this prompt, and a poem as well.

    The Journey

  25. Ron

    Always a little late for the party, here’s mine, an oldie but one I thought fit the prompt well and I always enjoyed. Hope you do too.


  26. A departure from the poetry I typically post. A remnant project from my former life as a fiction writer. Open to positive and negative feedback alike, this beast needs some shaping up because I’m very ready to turn it loose.


  27. Thanks to the WI admin. for changing the look of the page, now I won’t go blind!

  28. writersisland

    Islanders –

    This is a “You are welcome” to all those writing in and expressing your gratitude for the ‘makeover’ of our island!

    It would seem this ‘new look’ is permanent… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I am putting pepektheassassin’s link here: (one last time!!)


    Pepek, if you fill the boxes with your email and blog URL, your name would come live too. It would make it easier for all of us to visit you.

  30. gautami tripathy had reffered me here. hope I can join in


  31. Late again! I’m afraid Tuesday is the busiest day of the week for me and it’s hard to find the time, still I hope you’ll join me on my journey.
    I wrote this a few months ago but it came to mind immediately when I saw this weeks prompt, well here it is:

    Gautami –

    Thank you for helping Pepek post! I had helped last week, but overlooked editing her post this week owing to the distraction of visiting in-laws who are our house guests.

    Pepek, Gautami offers you good advice. Please try to follow her suggestion and fill the boxes out completely — because we all enjoy reading your work… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  33. Don’t have a post for this week ๐Ÿ˜ฆ – but I’ll enjoy reading all of yours. I do have great news that I posted – come celebrate with me if you get a chance ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. Late, late, late! But it’s my first time here and I am used to Thursdays. Ack. Here’s where I went on “The Journey.” I went small. I’ve been thinking about microcosms and critters lately.


  35. Meant to say, I like the new look much better. Light on black is always hard on my eyes, especially in a smaller font.

  36. Hope I’m not too late to finally participate in Writers Island!
    I’m excited to jump on board. Hope you will play along with me …


  37. Here is a poem:


    I guess I am wondering if it makes any sense to anybody or if you “had to be there” to understand it (in other words, if only I can understand it) or maybe a little bit of both.

    I would like very much to know what people can glean from it.
