Writing prompt: Fresh Start

I love the fresh start of a new school year. This year it is especially shiny and new since I start teaching two classes at a new school: George Mason University in Fairfax University.

For today’s prompt, describe a fresh start you've experienced. It could be the beginning of a semester, relationship, job, family, trip, book, poem, new cleaning product, new car, new program, new recipe, new exercise routine, new anything. Think about those jittery feelings in your belly and the many expectations that you have and describe them.

Will you share your writing with us below in the Comments section?

Looking at a clean, new room. The carpet is blue; hard to have imagined that over the past year as the floor was trashed with manga, papers, pennies, Magic cards. A long summer, but things are visible, uncluttered.

And I think he likes it.

Thanks for your flash fiction (prose poem?), Jen! This is great!

Blue notebook
3-ringed and full
of blue-lined paper
white and waiting
for blue ink words.
Straight ahead
a blue sky,
a clean horizon.
So perfect,
I have to hold my breath.

That's lovely, Ken! I really like the "clean horizon." Thanks for sharing!
