Writing Spark Saturday: The Flower

Hey guys! Welcome to another Writing Spark Saturday! As per usual, you can check out the rundown of WSS first if you've never participated. If you know the drill, scroll right down to today's spark!

What exactly is Writing Spark Saturday?
WSS is a fun way to take a break from your current project and write for fun. Every Saturday I will be posting some kind of writing challenge (such as a prompt or game) for you guys to respond to. I will try to always post my own response to the spark, though as you all know my schedule can get pretty busy, so I can't promise I will post my response every single week.

How can I participate?
Simple! Just check the blog (or your e-mail if you're subscribed) on Saturday to see what the spark is. Then write whatever that spark inspires you to write! In addition, if you would like to share what you have written, send it to me in an e-mail! I would love to read what you guys come up with, and if I like it enough I might share it here on the blog!

Why did you come up with Writing Spark Saturday?
As a writer myself, I know how invested we can get into our big novels and projects; sometimes to the point that writing isn't even fun anymore. It's just work.
My hope is that WSS will bring the fun back into writing by allowing you guys to take a break and be creative with different ideas. It is so, so important to take a step back from the work side of writing and just let yourself be creative without worrying so much about word usage, grammar, etc. Just write!

Today's Spark
Today's spark comes from "365 Creative Writing Prompts" from Think Written. I really liked this particular prompt because there are a lot of creative directions you could take with it. Today's WSS spark is . . .
Unfortunately, I don't have time to come up with anything for this spark as I will be at my aunt's house all day today. But if you would like to share your take on this spark, feel free to email me (dreamsdandelions@yahoo.com) or if your piece isn't super long, comment it down below!
ALSO, stay tuned for next week's WSS as I have something pretty exciting planned (*cough* contest *cough*)
Until then, happy writing!
