Hello Islanders –
Before I share with you this week’s prompt, I wanted to share this note — to tell you I’m genuinely happy to see you here, on the Island.
I founded the Island originally as a temporary destination for those of us set adrift when Poetry Thursday sunk. But the Island has flourished… because of writers, like you, who come to enjoy the tropical breeze, and to simply write — for the sheer pleasure of it! So, the beaches remain open, and all are most welcome!
Here’s a couple creative ‘island hopping’ tips to keep your muse entertained when not on the Island. Poetry Thursday is now ReadWritePoem. Check them out if you haven’t. And the crew at Totally Optional Prompts is doing a fine job. Both are excellent writing destinations.
Well, that’s all I wanted to say, except to add: “may your seas always be calm with a fair wind at your back — and may it always carry you exactly where you should be!” 😉
9:00 AM Friday morning, February 8th, 2008, on the U.S. west coast, is just over the horizon — so… here I am with a new Prompt!
This week’s, and the twenty first Writer’s Island prompt is: “Changed”.
Again, I’m not going to make any suggestions how you might approach this week’s prompt. Just contemplate the word “Changed”, and let your muse take you from there. Surprise, shock, mystify us!
Whatever moves your soul this week is what we all want to read. So, create your poem, prose, short story, essay, commentary, or whatever — and post it on your blog. Feel free to include recordings of you reading your work — and any photo, artwork, or graphic representation you feel is relevant.
When you have finished your piece, please return here to this post and place your link to your work as a comment — and as you know, just the link, not the piece.
Please realize there is no need to rush, this post will be open to receive your links for the entire week, leading up to the next prompt.
May this, and every week, bring a little change into your life — and may your muse be kind! We can’t wait to see what you write…
