This Week’s Prompt


Scratch

Isn’t it funny how a scratch can be both hurtful and soothing? If like me, you’ve been dead heading the roses all summer, your arms may well be covered in scratches, and they sting like anything. But I’ve also been bitten half to death by the proliferation of insects that seem to think I taste like the best thing since sliced bread this year, and of course, all I want to do, night and day, is to give ’em a good old scratch.

So already there’s a couple of options to write about. But then there’s animal scratches, scratchy pens, scratched initials in a tree trunk, ‘scratch that’, ‘you scratch my back…’ oh so many ideas… and I’m sure you could think of lots more. So where do I start??

As always, use the prompt in any old way you choose – Poetry; prose; fiction; non-fiction… it’s up to you. Be inventive, be cheeky, be funny, be scary, be serious! We’d love to hear your work, so do share it here.
