Sunday Writing Essential (06/15/14, Sound)


This week’s post is the second in the series of writing prompts dealing with sensory emotions. This time you’ll be writing about sounds. Be it music, creaks and groans, screams, a crying baby, or a laugh, sounds often produce immediate emotional reactions.

For the challenge this week, I want you to pick a particular sound, a song, or piece of music, and write a story or poem centered around your choice. Remember, focus on an emotional response connected to sound.

Examples:

A crying baby- you could write about a new mother and the anxiety she feels when her baby cries.

Write about being alone in a strange house full of odd, spooky creaks.

Pick your favourite song and write about how you feel about the music, or a memory it evokes.

 

The Challenge:

Pick a particular sound, a song, or piece of music, and write a story or poem centered around your choice. Remember, focus on an emotional response connected to sound.

 

The List of Things to Do:

  • Add this Challenge Statement to the post: Pick a particular sound, a song, or piece of music, and write a story or poem centered around your choice. Remember, focus on an emotional response connected to sound.
  • Put (SunWE, 06/15/14, Sound) in your post title.
  • Be sure to tag your post with SunWE, Gather Writing Essential, and Sound
  • Then post it to Gather Writing Essential. You can also comment below with the link to your post to ensure I find it.

There is also a limit of three submissions from each member per day, which you can follow or ignore at your discretion.

Also, if you would like me to critique your response, feel free to request it at the end of your post, otherwise I will simply leave a comment.
