I love a good writing prompt. That's a big part of why I started posting #lunchwrite challenges on Twitter a few weeks ago--no matter how tired or distracted or uninspired I feel, a good prompt can get me writing.
So today's prompt comes courtesy of Poets & Writers. Their weekly newsletter, "The Time is Now," provides a prompt each for a poem, fictional prose, and creative nonfiction.
I chose the poetry prompt but wrote a few lines of prose. So no need to be too prescriptive about it. And if you like the prompts, you can have them sent directly to your email by signing up on the website.
If you participate in today's challenge, tweet a line from the results with the hashtag #lunchwrite or add in the comments below.
