Throughout the month of June, we’ll be posting you a daily creative writing prompt. Sometimes these will be a single word, sometimes a storyline to follow. It might be an exercise, it might be an idea to get you started. Make sure you check back every day for your new prompt, and let us know on Facebook and Twitter how you’ve used them. We’re looking forward to seeing what you do with them:
Today’s prompt is:
Describe an orange. Do not use the word orange.
Think of other ways to convey what the fruit looks likes. Think about how other senses – touch, taste, smell – might suggest words.
Write this today. Tomorrow, we’ll give you a new Writing Magazine prompt.
