MLMM Sunday Writing Prompt – Three Senses

They say, smell triggers memories better than any other sense. But, sometimes you’ll hear a song that brings you back to your teenage years, or see a park that reminds you of your childhood.

THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE: Choose either sight, sound, or smell, and write a memory it triggers in you.

The Rules:

  • The style is completely open; poetry, prose, a single word…Go where the prompt takes YOU!
  • Keep your submission to 500 words or less.
  • Post it on your page, and TAG it Sunday Writing Prompt, MLMM, Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. And be sure to leave a link in the comment section below.
  • Feel free to use my photo for inspiration, or as your own cover image.
  • Please have your submissions in by the END OF EACH FRIDAY (Pacific Standard Time). Every Saturday, I will post a “standout” piece in a post entitled, Saturday Highlighter. Bear in mind, it will be based on my personal opinion. If you are not chosen, that does NOT mean your piece was not superb.
  • Be creative and HAVE FUN!

I just want to give a quick thank you to Michael who has entrusted me to take over this challenge. It is an honour, and I am very excited to spread my creative wings and soar in a new direction!

      Unique take on the prompt! One of my favorite things about writing is how a prompt can be interpreted in so many different ways.

      Opening your heart to another is probably one of the most difficult things in life. Lack of family support is heartbreaking. Touching post, Aseem.

      Wonderful, Sadje! Your post brought up memories of my Dad playing old scratchy records on Sunday mornings to coax me and my little sister out of bed for his famous hash browns and “drippy eggs”.
