Writing prompt – happy

Windmill Hill City Farm itchy goatA writer I know via Twitter recently commented that people often ask them why short stories are so depressing. Do you know what? They don’t need to be! The days are getting longer and brighter in the Northern Hemisphere and our hearts should be filling up with hope!

So this week’s writing prompt is less about inspiration than about challenging yourself.

If you usually write thought-provoking tales with a sorrowful core, try a sunnier slant. Can you write a tale in which no one dies, no one is mulling over a dark past and everyone is cheerful? In essence, make your tale as contented as this pygmy goat scratching an itch in the springtime 🙂

Alternatively, write a jolly story about the pygmy goat.

You can still write from the depths of your soul – just give it a flash of sunshine on the way up.

Count this as your challenge. Write bright!
