Welcome to this week’s featured writing prompt. This week we’re writing about color, lights, noise—the music of carnivals—as if we’re walking through the festive streets.
What are the physical sensations of being on carnival rides? Of moving through the crowds? Of waiting in line and the anticipation of reaching your destination?
When day turns to night, how does the carnival change—not only in appearance, but what are the unique smells, colors, and energy levels of the night?
And, what about the next day? How do the events of the carnival look, smell, and sound when the clean-up crew arrives?
Enjoy! and don’t forget to share your writing with us in the comment section.
