Friday Fiction Prompt

Read Across AmericaCiao, SEers. Time for another Friday Fiction Prompt.

Today is Dr. Seuss’s birthday. He was (and still is) one of my favorite authors. His sense of fantasy and whimsy is unparalleled, and his ability to include lessons in his messages made his work both enjoyable and educational.

Every year, “Read Across America” day is celebrated on March 2 in his honor.

Today, I’d like to present this quote by him, not from his published stories, but spoken by him when asked about his life and works.

Dr. Seuss Quote
This is supposed to be a prompt-post. So here’s my prompt for you:

Write a piece of fiction inspired by a limited and focused view. Examples include (but aren’t limited to) writing about something observed when peering through:

  • a telescope
  • a microscope
  • a keyhole
  • fence pickets
  • window blinds
  • hotel door peephole
  • bushes/leaves

Write your story on your blog and put your link in the comments section below. We encourage you to visit these links, then comment on and share the posts.

My submission, decidedly un-Seussian, can be found here. Hope you enjoy it. I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Ask your friends to participate. Click here to tweet this invitation:

  3. Dr. Seuss is one of my favorites too, and I love that quote. Also an excellent prompt. I visited around, read Joan, Harmony’s and your own submission, Staci, and they all rocked it. I left individual comments on each blog. I really liked the variety in this prompt.

    As I’m struggling with a wretched sinus and chest infection I doubt I’ll cobble anything together, but one of these days, I intend to play with Friday fiction!
