Summertime prompts

We all like to kick back and relax during the summer months up here in the northern hemisphere. The days are long and the temperatures are hot - perfect for relaxing.

Today's prompts take advantage of that mood. Choose one, find a piece of shade and write the afternoon away.

Prompt A
The day is hot, hot, hot and your protagonist is a child at the beach. Who is he/she with? Why are they there? How does he/she feel about the heat? Is your character tired and cranky or does he/she want to stay in the sun longer than is wise? Write in first person from the child's perspective.

Prompt B
A beautiful glen stretches before you on this warm summer day. Describe it so that anyone reading your piece can see what you see and feel what you feel.

Prompt C
The sun is shining and it's a beautiful day outside. Just a hint of breeze blows the leaves. Your protagonist is working inside an air conditioned building with no windows. Write a conversation he/she has with his boss.

Have fun -- and enjoy the weather!
