The Walk

Use the following writing prompt to inspire you to write a scene.

You take your dog for a walk, and about halfway through, your phone dings with a text message: “I’m watching you.” You look around, but the only person you see is a woman going in the opposite direction from you. You continue on your way, but feel uneasy. Your phone dings with another message: “Don’t look behind you.” Who is following you? And what do you do?

The Thunderstorm

Use the writing prompt below to write a scene using auditory (sound) imagery and thermal (sense of hot and cold) imagery.

You take your dog for a walk in the woods near your home. You have gone only a short way when the wind picks up and your dog starts to whine. You feel a few drops of rain. Before you can turn to leave, the sky opens up and begins to pour. What do you do?
