Time To Write: Ten Minutes

Last week’s prompt was Sense of Smell.

Nthato wrote a fun piece in response. You can find his story on his blog: Sense of Smell Prompt.

Aurora wrote a beautiful piece in response:

I remember being together with my grandmother when I was probably about seven or eight years old. It was summertime, around noon, and the sky was dark grey like lead. She asked me to come outside with her. There she ordered me to listen. No birds were singing, no bees humming. It was completely silent. And then she told me to smell. It was unique, unusual and unforgettable. And she said: “That’s how rain smells.”
The first drops started falling only about 10 minutes later.
About half a year, early December, I was with her again. Suddenly she ordered me to put on my jacket and we went outside. The sky was grey and cloudy, the air damp.
She again ordered me to smell and I did.
Then she said: “That’s how snow smells.”
Not even half an hour later the first flakes fell.
I never forget these episodes – nor the smells of rain and snow.

This week’s prompt is…

TTW Ten Minutes

Whether you have writer’s block or not, this is always a great exercise to get your mind thinking creatively.

Take a timer, set it for ten minutes, and then write about whatever you want.

You can start a new story, make a list of something, or just ramble about nothing or about everything.

I noticed that when I do this exercise I tend to ramble about my day and what I need to get done writing-wise, blogging-wise, life-wise. It’s kind of boring and not much a story.

Yet, it get your mind moving and it’s a great stress reliever if not anything else.

If you choose to participate, post your work in the comments. I’d love to see what you come up with.

Next Friday, before revealing the next prompt, I’ll post your work with a link back to your blog if you wish.

Time To Write: Sense Of Smell

TTW Sense of Smell

With the holidays approaching, different kinds of smells are all around us.

If the air is cold enough, we can smell snow on the way. Sometimes the scent of Christmas trees waft in the air. The smell of baking cookies and other desserts is always comforting as well as the smell of Christmas dinner.

Even without the holidays, the smell of a good cup of coffee or tea can wake us up in the morning. Or we can be satisfied by the way the pages smell in a book while reading.

Take a moment and reflect on our wonderful sense of smell. Have your character describe what he smells during the situation he’s in. The five senses are a great addition to description in your writing.
