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.

Please Share: If you have used “A Walk in the Clouds” to write for your own blog, please remember to share your link here, with your finished post. Don’t forget to check out fellow bloggers. Share the comments and positive feedback. 🙂

Hey Friend, Welcome to a part of my small world. Because this is called the "About Me" Page, I probably should say a few things about me. Right? Here goes.... I was a Certified Child Development Specialist for over twenty years, while working with infants, toddlers, Pre-K and Head Start..... I am now a Certified (Christian) Breakthrough Life Coach through Life Breakthrough Academy. I could say so much more between the dot, dot, dots...but I'll spare you the boredom. LOL I am the founder of -Her Journey Towards Change- for women who are (for whatever reason) on their journey towards change. I believe everyone needs that 'go to' person in facilitating change. But, sadly, not everyone does. I know what it's like trying to figure life out but can't seem to get past the 'stuck' mindset. The first step to becoming 'unstuck' is being truthful with yourself. Believe me...I know. This is why I started 'Her Journey Towards Change.' I have a passion and purpose for serving God and for serving women. My hope is to provide you with a valuable service in finding clarity in your struggles, accountability in reaching your goals, assisting with strategies through guidance and support, focus on your God-given talents and unique skills, offer positive insights and new perspectives and eliminate the negativity that might be pulling you down. I truly believe God has given women a uniqueness like nothing else in this world. I also believe when we, as women, understand our identity in Christ, we can know our purpose. And in spite of our challenges, we can live in faith with the hope and joy God desires for us. ~Born and raised as a coal miner's daughter in North Central West Virginia is what keeps me humble. My influence as a Christian, wife, mother and grandmother gives me purpose. Living my life to the fullest and making each day count is what keeps me fulfilled. Using my God-given talents for others simply makes me happy...and living for God is what makes me whole.~

    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.
