Friday Snippet #47

I talked about the official start of autumn in my Wednesday post, so I thought I’d expand on the subject by giving you some related writing prompts!


  1. An autumn storm cuts off electricity. How will your character bide their time until it returns?
  2. Choose one autumn-y moment (kid playing in a pile of leaves, friends carving pumpkins, a couple taking a walk through an orange-red park etc.) and first write a scene about it with only minimal description. Then re-write the scene with loads and loads of description (don’t worry about purple prose or any other rules against it). Finally find the balance between the two.
  3. What do you love/hate about autumn? Make a story out of it.

Hope these will give you some inspiration!
