Write down as many words as you can associated with rainbows, chimney pots and crows. Pick your seven favourites. Now write down an idea for a novel, or a short story which will include some of your seven favourite words and one of the colours of the rainbow.
This week’s prompt by Jude.
Try a different genre. Write a story for younger children set on an island. Make it cheery and include a dog. Or write an opening to a contemporary YA novel about life on an island where everything is changing, domestically and politically. Less cheery, but a dog can still be included.
