Prompt #14 for 2010: The Journey

Welcome to Writer’s Island.

New prompt(s) are posted every Saturday. Consider the 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 fourteenth prompt for 2010 invites exploration and discovery. The prompt is: THE JOURNEY… It examines the seductive call of the horizon, of the great ‘beyond’… maybe it’s a journey we’ve already taken, about to take, or dream of taking… be it a journey through the material world around us, into the mind, perhaps into the ‘spirit’ within us, or… It should be very interesting to see where each of us goes.

So dust off your traveling shoes, whether real or imagined, physical or metaphysical. Tell us in your words (poem, prose, flash fiction, etc.) the who, what, where, when, why or how regarding the trip — including any visual image you might want to incorporate. Look to the horizon, then 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!!! 😉

  4. Here is my response to the prompt. I have high fantasy on the brain at the moment.

      We are a ‘fantasy island’, so a little high fantasy seems appropriate Kitty — besides, a few of us may have had a high fantasy or two, so I think the Islanders will relate… 😉

  5. I been wanting to write about this game that I had been playing quite a few months ago with XBOX 360, this journey will be called “Journey to Hell” which will be divided into 9 different poems traveling into the different circles of Hell based on a game called “Dante’s Inferno” with my own twist here and there.

    Hope you guys will enjoy this journey with me=)

    The first one starts from this post:

    Descent to Limbo

    Second part:

    World of Lust
    {Note: Image might be consider mature :O, I tried to blur it out as much as I can already >.< }

    About the game: It is based the first canticle of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, following the exploits of Dante as he journeys through the nine circles of Hell to reclaim the soul of his beloved Beatrice from the hands of Lucifer.
