Welcome to week four (4) of the re-opening of Writer’s Island. This week will mark the first month back on the Island. It has been great seeing so many of our Islanders, former and new, coming ashore to share their writing. This is a nice sized island, and we have plenty of beaches — so bring your friends, and let’s crank up this “beach parteee” even further!
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.
••> The 4th re-opening celebration prompt is: IMAGINARY FRIEND… Pretend you are stranded on a deserted island, or lost in a jungle, or marooned on a planet — and you are alone, so to pass the time, you ‘create’ a friend. Or perhaps you imagine what the ideal friend might be like in your life as it is right now, or how you might be the ideal friend — maybe you already have a friend who is so amazing, they defy imagination. Tell us in your words (poem, prose, flash fiction) the why, who, what, where, when, or how regarding that friend/friendship — 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 check out some of the Island’s orchids. Go have yourself a nice cool drink of choice, and let’s all bask in this tropical beauty!!! 😉
