Welcome to the first Writing Prompt Monday! Each Monday we will post a simple writing prompt to help writers jump start the writing process. Write until you feel you have nothing else to write about. When you are done, send it to us via e-mail (email@example.com) or simply reply in the comments section. While it is not necessary to send us what you write, we will feature a selection of the results we receive on Friday. Be sure to include your name.
Writing Prompt: Listen to whatever song is currently your favorite. Close you eyes and really focus on the words and music. Write a piece of prose or poetry in response to the song. Use the name of the band or the name of the song as your title.
Send what you write to: firstname.lastname@example.org
