Writing Prompt – Thursday 9th April

For this week’s prompt, imagine you are in a cherry orchard surrounded by the scent of the blossom. The spring sunshine is warm on your skin. The sky is blue. You can hear birdsong and see butterflies and bees amongst the blossom. Close your eyes and imagine being in this place. Build a full sensory picture of it. When you open your eyes write down everything you can remember.

Create a poem or flash fiction story from the words you have written.

Then think about a character who lives in this orchard. (They can be whoever you like and from any time in history). Create a character study for them. What do they most want? Who or what is stopping them from achieving this? Create the first few paragraphs of a story.
