Friday Freewrite #11 – “When it rains…”

Friday-FreewriteWelcome back to the Friday Freewrite!

Here’s how it works:

  • I post a “JUMP LINE,” a short phrase that will serve as a writing prompt, each Friday.
  • YOU put pen to paper and write for 90 seconds. (I’ll do it, too, of course.)  Don’t think.  Don’t cross out.  (That is wise advise borrowed from Natalie Goldberg in Wild Mind.)  Just start with the prompt and see where it takes you.
  • Then POST YOUR RESPONSE as a comment.  (Just click the comment bubble  to the right of the post title to leave a reply.)

Are you ready? Let’s begin!

Today’s jump line:  When it rains

See the comments below the post for responses.

Note to Writers Forum members in good standing: The newsletter editor will be perusing Friday Freewrite responses to publish in the newsletter.  If you DO NOT want your response printed, kindly indicate this in the comments.  We are happy to respect your wishes.  Happy writing!

  1. …all is right with the world. The rain is a cloak, a blanket. It comforts, secures, renews. It coaxes seeds to sprout and push up from the ground, even weed seeds, which can be more difficult to applaud, but still they like the rain. As do I.

  2. When it rains I feel alive. Nourished. I love the grey and the cold and wet. I’m Irish so I think it’s genetic . Don’t get me wrong, I like sunny warm days. But when it rains, I sense growth and in a weird way, a future.
