Writing Prompts with Bees

This time of the year, the bees are buzzing like mad on my sunflowers. For today's creative writing prompts, we will let the word "bees" be our starting point.

Write, for one minute, all the words or phrases that come to your head as you think of the word "bees".

After you free-write for one minute, make a few catchy titles (or maybe a few not so catchy titles) using at least 3 of the words from your list. The word "bee" should not be in your title, but you can add other words as needed. Just make sure you take 3 words from your list, too.
Next, pick the title you like best. 

Now take the title and write the beginning of a short story, a poem, or an essay. Enjoy!

If you would like to post just the titles you came up with, I would love to read them. And of course, you can post your writing, too.

Here are the titles I cam up with from my list:

Garden Wings Humming

Alone in the Sunflower Garden

Tell me, Honey. . .

Happy writing!
