Welcome to the ninth instalment in my weekly writing series. Each week, I give you an idea – whether it’s a magazine to write for, a theme for a short story and/or poem, an idea for an article…Here are the first , second , third , fourth , fifth , sixth , seventh and eighth instalments in the series.
This week, it’s the letter I‘s turn. And I is for Island.
What does the word island mean to you? A beautiful, tranquil island? Buried Treasure? A desolate, unhabitable island? Or is your island a myserious one, in a new world, far, far away from earth? Use the senses to create an image in your mind – what does the island look like? What sounds can you imagine hearing on this island? How about the smells? Touch? Taste? What’s happened on the island? Has there been a shipwreck? Perhaps there’s something hidden someone where on the island. Or has a body been washed up onto the beach?
Let your imagine carry you away. Hopefully you now have the beginnings of a story or poem building in your mind.
