A Writing Prompt a Day: 4th November #NaNoWriMo

In celebration of NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, I’ll be publishing a writing prompt every day here on my website as well as on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Here’s my fourth one.


Last week week, here in New Hampshire, we had a storm overnight. Walking to school with my daughters the next year was a magical experience. When we went to sleep the night before, the world looked one way and now, it was totally different: the water levels on the ponds were high; broken branches and tree-trunks lay across the road; the trees were suddenly bare; pinecones carpeted our path. 

This is a picture I took that morning. The way human beings interact with the natural world is fascinating, especially when nature takes us by surprise and disrupts our routines and shakes our confidence that we are in control in of our lives. Some of my friends in New Hampshire and Maine still don’t have power.

Use this prompt to inspire you today. Write for five minutes non-stop, anything that comes to mind, see where it takes you!

Happy writing! 💫
