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 twentieth prompt for 2010 is: LAST REDWOOD. For something a bit different this week, imagine you are the very last giant redwood standing on earth. Why are you the last? What happened to the rest? What do you see? How do you feel? What message might you have? Are there human survivors? Is the planet now barren? What ever strikes you, express it.
So please consider the concept and the many possible perspectives and ramifications, and tell us in your words (poem, prose, flash fiction, etc.) the who, what, where, when, why or how regarding sole survivorship — include any visual image you might want to incorporate, and 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!!! 😉
