Monday Writing Prompt: Let’s Go Exploring!
As a writer I have always found writing prompts to be helpful for sparking the imagination. As of late I have been reversing the process and crafting my own writing prompts as a way of getting a few lines on paper that might lead to a promising story. This morning I was working on my job’s version of a TPS Report and then I started daydreaming about Colonial America and exploring the continent and quickly typed this up.
Two days West of the Hood River. Our men are hungry, tired and on the verge of mutiny. Our clothes have been wet for nearly a fortnight. Provisions are meager, morale low. How did we come to this? We left the tranquility of the Missouri backwater in high spirits. One month later, I don’t know if our party will survive this trip intact. If Nature and the indigenous people of this region remain conspired against us, all may be lost.
So my challenge to readers is this: Leave a comment with the next couple of paragraphs. Make them sad, funny, exciting, etc. If we get some good ones I will post them later this week. Happy writing!
