#FlashPIC 57 Winter Sky #writingprompt #amwriting

Looking up to the sky on the kind of winter’s day when you want to be outside, wrapped up warm, breathing the chill air deep into your lungs, can be uplifting. Experiment with capturing this feeling, write notes, take photographs, research the weather conditions, so you can use it for the setting for a future story.
This writing prompt is from the Writers’ BLOCKbusters series. writing prompt
Concentrate on writing about atmosphere, your perception of the day, the weather, how it makes you feel. This prompt is not about character or plot.
Describe the contrast of cold air in your lungs and warm sun on your face. The woolly hat on your head. The heavy boots on your feet. The tingle of frost on your cheeks. The need for sunglasses. What emotions do you feel? How do you see others react to the beautiful weather?
Think about how a winter’s day can look like a day in summer, except for the difference in temperature and the trees bare of leaves.
Explore all aspects of this winter’s day as the setting for a future short story.

writing promptsWhat are ‘Writers’ BLOCKbusters’?
I want to help you put words on the page. Those words won’t necessarily be the first line of your novel, or indeed anything to do with your novel, but they will be words to fill that intimidating blank space. And it couldn’t be quicker. Writers’ BLOCKbusters is a collection of three ebooks of writing prompts. Why are they different? Precisely because they are short, easy to use, and flexible. Designed for writers of fiction, any genre, novels, short stories, flash fiction, they are suitable for all genre of fiction precisely because each exercise is based on a subject unrelated to whatever you are struggling with. I am not looking over your shoulder.
