Monday Morning Prompt: Smoke Signals


Hello everyone! Happy Monday! It is Monday, isn’t it? I fear that I’ve lost track of what day it is…and also time of day. It was one of those weeks last week. I do have a Monday Morning Prompt for you though! Try this one on for size:

You’re sitting on your porch swing enjoying some hot tea when suddenly the house in front of you catches fire. You drop your tea cup and sprint inside to call 911. By the time you run back outside the firetrucks are on their way. As you watch the flames and the smoke you notice something…strange. The smoke that is dissipating into the sky seems to be spelling out something. It’s a message. For you. What does it say and what does it prompt you to do?

Enjoy! If you want to share what you’ve come up with, post it on your blog and link it back here in the comments section below! Or if you’re shy and want some one to read it over, e-mail it to We’ll give you our opinion and a critique if you want. Just make sure you put “Smoke Signals” in the subject.

Love, Joy
