Walking to Write

Little donkey I found on a recent walk

Just in time for those real long summer wanders I love, my seventh set of writing prompts for the Ploughshares  blog tackles the wonders of walking and the importance of place, with wisdom from Luis Urrea. The uber-talented Melanie Masson was very generous in lending a few of her gorgeous landscape photographs to the post.

As I’m nearing the half-way point in this year of blogging about writing prompts, I’ll just put it out here: any requests for particular topics? So far I’ve covered portraits, eavesdropping, architecture, objects, dance, and music. I have other topics lined up, but I’m open to suggestions. Leave a comment here, tweet at me, or send me an email. And thanks!

    Loved this post! I’m a walker but I haven’t been out for a spin in a few weeks – you’ve inspired me to not be too busy to walk!

      I’m so glad! Whenever I think I’m too busy to walk, I get really cranky. If nothing else, walking reminds me to be a person first. Or so I like to think.
