J. E. H U N T E R

A writer of young adult fiction specializing in self-publishing, creativity, and writing.

For this weeks Creative Writing Prompt, I’ve decided to do something a bit different. The other week, in order to refresh my own writing and generate some new ideas and move past some minor writer’s block, I decided to go on a long walk in my home city of Saskatoon. Saskatoon has a great riverside trail called the Meewasin Valley Trial, which boasts all kinds of sights and sounds. I decided to capture some moments on my walk, and compiled them into this video montage for a special writing prompt. So on to the creative writing prompt this week (do one or do them all!):

  1. Describe the distinct sounds in each video clip.
  2. Write a story about a person on this journey. Where are they heading and why? What is at stake if they don’t get there?
  3. Describe the sights and colours in each video clip.
  4. Write a poem from the clips. How do they make you feel?
  5. Write about what you see and hear from the perspective of an alien watching the video feed from a far away planet.

Don’t forget, if you missed the last prompt, you can find it here. And, if you’re interested, here is a link to further information about the Saskatoon Meewasin Valley Trail.
