Today’s Writing Prompt: Convince someone to join your team.

I have very few friends who love to read and I am constantly trying to convince them of the importance of being a voracious reader. I find it hard to understand why some of my just do not love to read. My friends also try to convince me the do some of the things they enjoy. I have one friend who loves camping, not in a camper, but outside on the ground in a tent. I love nature and being outdoors, but there is something about going to sleep in the woods with only a thin piece of fabric separating me from any other thing that is out in the woods does not appeal to me. She is constantly telling me that it is so wonderful, but I am not convinced.

For this writing prompt, write a convincing argument on why someone should try something you enjoy.

Today’s Writing Prompt:  Write about a visual.

I few years ago I took a class called Writing about the Arts.  I absolutely loved the class and it was taught by one of my favorite professors.  We went to museums, concerts, plays, etc., and had to write about each event.  It was refreshing to do this different type of writing that welcomed me to use all of my senses.

For this writing prompt find a painting, play, concert, or any visual art to write about.
