June Writing Prompt

June’s writing prompt is Warmth. Whether it’s summer weather, a tender hug or the comfort of familiarity, there are different ways to experience warmth. Our bodies are warm, with our typical interior temperature being about 98 degrees Fahrenheit. With that in mind, no wonder humans routinely seek out warmth.

Here are some ideas for engaging this prompt:

  • A story about a journey to a frigid climate or one set in a snowstorm or in building without heat (in winter); any setting where getting warm places a part in the characters’ behaviors and motivations.
  • Write about a fond memory with a friend or relative that makes you smile and reassures you.
  • Write a poem about the beach or a summer vacation.
