The First Day of Spring



Today is officially the first day of spring, and here in Austin it seems more like summer.  However, I will put my sass away and be thankful for all the lovely flowers in bloom (and bees.)  Write a two page short story or one page poem starting with this line :

It was the first day of spring, I stepped out to the garden and … 

It could be positive and ‘spring like’ or it could be completely pessimistic and strange.  Follow the first line and let spring bring something fresh into your writing.


Cheers –



Wednesday Writing Prompt

Winter has a entirely different meaning here in Texas than it does in most other places. In my short 22 years of life here, I can count how many times it’s snowed on one hand, but that just makes winter, and the holidays, another unique thing about living in Texas. So, with that in mind, tell us what winter is like for you!

Write about one of the five senses (related to your winter experience):

  • The smells of winter
  • The sights of winter
  • The sounds of winter
  • The touch of winter
  • The tastes of winter

Remember, post your response in the comments section so everyone can read and enjoy it!
