A writing storm

   The clouds rolled in around mid afternoon. Muggy and hot, the air felt charged with weight. As the sun set the clouds released their held breath with crackling lightening and rolling thunder.

Today’s writing prompt is inspired by our local weather. Today I would suggest writing about violent change. That moment when water crosses the threshold from waiting to boil to boiling, the calm before the storm when it is no longer calm. The moment someone falls from their bike just before they hit the round.

Once you have written about that moment or series of moments I want you to take all of the language you used to describe it and apply it towards an abstract idea. Take boiling water and use it to write about a break up, use a storm to describe a desire or the concept of fear.

As always have fun writing and when your ready share your experiments.
