Summertime Writing Prompts 1

Creative Writing Prompts for Summer

It's going to be a hot one out here today, for sure.  Today for our creative writing prompts, we are going to reflect on summer.  Where I live, summer is a great time to eat fresh fruit (like watermelon) and vegetables.  We also have a lot of colors with the flowers in bloom. We will use quotes today to jump-start our writing.

Free-Write Prompt

In June, as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day. No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them. - Aldo Leopold

Free-write for at least 5 minutes on what you have noticed about summer recently.

Essay Prompt

There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart. - Celia Thaxter

Write about what you are grateful for in summer.

Poetry Prompt

What are some of your favorite summer foods?  Write a poem about one of them.  You might want to review Barbara Crooker's prompt on food before starting a summer food poem. 

Good luck and enjoy!  As always, feel free to leave a comment or an excerpt of your writing.
