The Write It Out series serves as an opportunity for us all to explore our creative writing in a supportive and collaborative environment. Each month I will share a prompt along with my writing inspired by it, then invite you to participate. For this month, write about your favorite road trip.
On The Road
We know each other enough to know we have a lot to learn,
but we’re both interested.
I can drive a stick, but not your car.
I’ll sit in the passenger seat this time.
We’ll ask questions, we’ll laugh, we’ll camp our way there,
stopping to see friends and cats on the way.
We’ll camp underneath the stars in Joshua Tree.
You’ll make me coffee outside the tent in the mornings.
I’ll take you up the Ferris wheel at Balboa.
You’ll beat me in skeeball.
We’ll go to Salvation Mountain when it’s hot
and the Getty when it’s breezy.
You’ll ride a horse for the first time.
And I’ll notice on the drive home that I could really love you.
I am very curious to read about your favorite road trip and remember, you don’t have to write a poem. You can write anything you want: a short story, a long poem, free prose, etc. If you do write something, make sure you link up. See the details below:
- write from this month’s prompt and post on your blog
- submit your post below where it says “click here to enter”
- encourage your readers to take part, too!
