As we get closer to summer, and people are spending more and more time outdoors enjoying freedom after the winter, we're getting far less writing on here. That doesn't really surprise me all that much. I know that the same is happening for me, and will be even more so once we get to July and August.

So I'm trying to decide what to do about Writing Prompts during the next three months.

* Don't bother doing writing prompts for the summer
* Do a monthly writing prompt
* Do a very basic & easy writing prompt each week

For "basic & easy," I was thinking of doing "Alphabet Soup" writing prompts. Each week would look like this:

Writing Prompt: Alphabet Soup - A
Think of an object that begins with the letter A. Now write a paragraph, a poem, or a short story about that object.

Then, obviously, that would be followed by "Alphabet Soup -B", "Alphabet Soup -C", and so forth.

The big question is: if I set up writing prompts for the summer many people will do them?

Good question. I can't guarantee that I would, but I hardly do the writing prompts now. I am hoping, however, that I'll be able to do a bit more writing over the summer, since I'm only taking one class instead of three or four.

Well, I can't say that I would do the writing prompts, but I'm kind of in the same boat as Josiah. I'm hoping to be able to write more over the summer, since my classes will be over.

That would be much easier for me then the currant writing prompts.

I was thinking about this some more, and thought: It would be fun if we could have an 'Alphabet Soup' chapter in next year's anthology.

Of course, that would be dependent on a bunch of people doing the writing prompt each week, so we would have at least one really excellent submission for each letter of the alphabet.

Anyone else have any thoughts or comments on whether they would do writing prompts this summer?
