Writing Prompt: Go Outside and Look


It is finally and truly spring. There are buds on the trees and new sprouts on the ground. You can start planting your garden, inside or out. Here in Washington, D.C., we've had a few beautiful, sunny days.

For today's writing prompt, go outside. Leave your computer behind and take an old fashioned notebook and pen. Sit somewhere, quiet or not, and write. Describe what you see and how your surroundings change with the seasons.

I took the above picture in our Ann Arbor, Michigan, neighborhood on the west side last year. I remember being struck by the single flower in a garden of lush green tones. Today, you might take a picture, but also work to describe the image and your response in words.

I welcome you to share your writing below in the Comments Section.
