Your Monday Prompt #44

(For non-regular readers, I present an original writing prompt every Monday. Here’s one for this week.)

Write a story about a character who uses their time in nature for self-reflection. Maybe they’re thinking about their childhood while sitting on a dock. Perhaps they’re turning their marriage over and over while walking a trail. Or possibly they’re finally making a decision to move on with their lives as they stare into a campfire. Use the setting of nature to its fullest potential in terms of sensory writing (include them all if you can: sight, sound, smell, touch, taste) and let it serve as a metaphor to reflect the character’s emotional state. Give this exercise fifteen minutes of your time. Double points if you write this story while in nature yourself. Triple word score if you write this story while in the same nature setting as your character.

Write it up and see what happens.
