Spring is almost here!! With a busy week ahead, I’m going to share a writing prompt to get you guys thinking about spring, and some much warmer weather. Last week, I shared with you all about my past adventures in writing showcases. One of the showcases was Spring Fling. Even though the theme was about connecting with people, I think the season of spring could also apply. You can check out my story for that showcase here!

Here’s the prompt:

  • Write a story around an object associated with spring (flowers, warmer temperatures, sunny days, rainy days, etc.)
  • What does the season of spring mean to you?
  • Write a love story that takes place during springtime.
  • Write whatever enters your mind about spring!

The word count should be between 500 and 1,000 words. Try writing for an hour if you can to start off.

Happy writing!
