Writing Prompt: A Walk in the Clouds

Every Friday, a quote, image, music clip, word or writing prompt will be posted. Use these as a way to unblock and enhance your creative thinking skills.

There are no rules. Find your right moment in the day or week to write with little to no distractions. Use a pen, pencil, keyboard or whatever fits the mood and just write. WRITE. WRITE. WRITE. I prefer pen, (blue ink) rather than my computer. My thoughts seem to flow faster when my pen hits the page.

Express all those buried, unconscious thoughts within the deepest part of your mind. You may use the timer provided below as you write. But whatever you do, don’t stop until the time is up. Keep the flow going. Do this as often as you choose. The more you write the more you unlock the block. Once you feel you have a creative flow, take something from your writing and turn it into your own masterpiece.

This event will occur every Friday, so check back for the weekly prompt.
If you have used a prompt and posted on your blog, link back to this page.

Once you’ve published your post, you can leave a link to your post in the comments section of that particular prompt used.

Please don’t post and run. Be sure to stick around to support others with positive feedback.

Your comments, suggestions and questions are welcomed. Please remember to be respectful with your words to keep the positive flowing

Free Writing Timer

Free Writing Exercise: Focus on the photo/Use a timer (for at least 1 minute) and write whatever comes to mind. ( any random thoughts) JUST WRITE! When the timer is up, go back and look at what was written. Circle or highlight the first words/sentences that pop out. Use these for ideas for future posts.

Photo Writing Prompt: I often find myself looking up in awe of the clouds above. They are always moving. Always natural. Always geometrically perfect. Ideas rise in clouds. Imagination lives there. Clouds speak words. To some, they may hear negative as where others, see the positive.

Now it’s your turn!

Let your words freely flow about any or all of the thoughts listed above. It can be in the form of a poem, a quote you like to live by,  but with this prompt…take a walk on a cloudy day and capture and post a photo of something that clearly speaks to you of these words.

      1. Thank you and your welcome.I really love where these prompts take me when I’m writing. It’s amazingly helpful and inspiring, oh I meant to tell you I’ve tried the timer and it works great. It does take you to a new page but it’s helpful and you can set it to any time, may use it for other things.

    1. Beautifully written! I love how your thoughts all flow together. You wrote it as quickly as a cloud can come and go… I also appreciate the fact that you took time to write even for a moment, before you went to your class. All we need is a moment sometimes…. Thanks so much for sharing your awesome thoughts! 🙂 Please come back for the next prompt. I look forward to your posts.
