Writing Prompt: My Summer Vacation

Writingprompt_generic Back-to School Writing Prompt: My Summer Vacation

There’s a point every summer when I notice how the sun looks in the sky, how it’s positioned differently than it was in June, how it filters through the trees like a painting, how everything around me, even the beaches and lakes, feels muted, a bit heavier, than they did when summer first began. And that’s when I realize that summer is (gulp!) almost over.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t have great stories to tell about this summer. And now that you all are gearing up for school, organizing binders and laptop folders, and trying to remember locker combinations, it’s the perfect time to take a few moments and remember how you spent your summer.

So for today’s Writing Prompt, pull up a chair (it can be a beach chair) and put on your memory glasses. Think back to something ultra-cool, totally exciting, or even something scary and new that you did over the summer. And then get writing!

Over the summer, I tried something ______________________.

It turned out _________________________________________.

Here’s what I did: ____________________________________.

Happy end-of-summer!
