Prompt #11 for 2011: Tribute

Welcome to Writer’s Island.

We are pleased to now be in our fifth (5th) year here on the Island, providing writing prompts. New prompt(s) are posted every Saturday at 12:01 AM, U.S. East Coast Time. 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 eleventh prompt for 2011 is “TRIBUTE”.

Consider the many meanings of the word: • gift, • testimonial, • compliment, • acknowledgment, • contribution, • recognition, • remembrance, • commendation, • eulogy, • honor, • and the like — let the word tribute spark your muse… or choose to go in your own direction with your piece this week. Just 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!!! 😉

    • Hi Brenda, I don’t know if you’re having trouble with your blog but I thought I’d better let you know, for some reason your blog won’t let me comment. It happened the other day, too.
