Writing Prompt for Wednesday 11/16/16

Your Daily Writing Prompt


Daily Writing PromptThis week, we continue working on setting.  I want you to describe that setting from that character’s (or your) point-of-view while that character is experiencing a certain mood and while using more sensory detail than simply sight. You don’t have to use all five senses but include at least a few more senses. Don’t rely solely on sight. Pick out details your character might notice that help illustrate your character’s mood.

For example, if a character is feeling romantic, they might see purple flowers, but if your character is feeling irritated, they might notice that those purple flowers are wilted and dying.  Read the full instructions on this week’s prompts.

Today’s prompt: Write a scene in which your character is feeling the following mood and is in the setting listed below.

Setting:  A forest

Mood:  Anxious

You can post your daily writing exercises in the comments section of the blog post if you’d like, but that’s totally up to you. We’d love to read what you’ve written as a result of the prompt!

Go forth and write,




  • You can write about yourself or apply these prompts to your character.
  • You can change personal pronouns (he to she or she to I, etc.)
  • You don’t have to follow the prompt exactly; it’s more important that you get words on the page today.
