Today’s prompt brought to you by Winter Tangerine’s #wtchcraftchallenge on Instagram. It’s Day 16! I’ve been loving these witchy prompts. Check them out @wintertangerine_ - please share your creation, and remember to use the hashtag!
It’s Free Write Friday. Your prompt is this image by @qta3. Write down the first word that comes to mind. And the second. And the third. Next to each of these words, write down an associated word. Now you have a six-word pool. Use all of these words. Write.
Have you ever noticed how private
a wet tree is
a curtain of razor blades
Love me because nothing happens.
— Leonard Cohen, from Parasites of Heaven
Write a poem or story that begins with “Have you ever noticed…”

Use one example of synaesthesia (mixing the senses).
Include a stranger.
Include the colour purple.
