Nature – inspired again!

DP #61: Inspired by Nature

Write a piece of flash fiction using the following prompt for inspiration:

The protagonist wakes up in a seemingly endless field of wildflowers in full bloom with no idea how he or she got there.

Take ten minutes.

Today, we’re going back outside! Your goal will be to pick one small aspect of nature to focus on. Write about it in as detailed a manner as you can. Notice everything about this one piece of nature. Start inventing a story for it or create a poem.

The second half of class, all of you will be sharing some of your nature writing from the past two days at the outdoor stage area. You decide what piece of writing you want to share.

Let’s go out and enjoy nature today!

Inspired by Nature

DP #60: Inspired by Nature

Write a piece (poem, flash fiction, etc…) using the following image: a smashed flower on the sidewalk.

Take ten minutes.

Today, we are going to explore nature as a means of creative written expression. We’ll be using

Thoreau’s model of nature writing

  • Keep a Journal.
  • Record Personal Observations of Nature.
  • Express Personal Thoughts, Feelings, and Ideas.
  • Show How All of Life Is Connected and Interdependent.
  • Be Positive, Warm and Open to All Life.
  • Begin Now.

As we explore the school’s natural surroundings, we will also take A Haiku Walk.
