Another open-ended one this week to engage your writing muscles. Write 100 words about “roll”. Any interpretation of the word is fair game. You could write about roll as verb, adjective, noun, or maybe even a proper noun, if you have a Dave Roll in your book, or are writing about a Rolls Royce.

Weekly writing prompt: Silk

Write 100 words about silk. This could be the fabric, or the legal person, or the way silkworms create their thread, or something else entirely. One of my favorite descriptors of dialog comes from one of the Harry Potter books (I forget which, sorry) where it says, “Snape said, silkily.” It really evokes an image of the way his voice spoke the words, and revealed a lot about his character. What can you come up with?

Weekly writing prompt: Cross

This week, write 100 words about “cross”.

Or maybe you want to write about a crossing. It’s entirely up to you.
