Writing Workshop Wednesdays (17)

With Thanksgiving only a day away, I thought an acrostic writing using the word Thanksgiving would be appropriate for this week’s writing prompt.  What I like about acrostic writing is that it helps those creative juices flow by offering direction and, I believe, the finished product can make even the reluctant writer unleash his/her inner poet.

Tears of joy, not pain

Hugs from others, especially the unexpected ones

Answers to prayers

Novels which make me stay up past my bedtime . . .

Kindness from others and to others

Sassy walk as learned on a Girl Scout field trip


Invitations, unexpected and inclusive of all

Volleyball coaching with a dear friend


Nestled under the covers on a chilly night

Gratitude for all that was,all that is, and all that will be

Be sure and SHARE your acrostic writing in the comments section (especially if you are one of my English 111 students).

  1. T hankfulness for all our many blessings

    H offmann, IL, where the family gathers

    A pple pie aroma filling the air

    N estled up by the fire

    K ing-sized desserts

    S ports and games

    G randma and Grandpa’s house full of people

    I mproper table manners while stuffing our face

    V acate to bedrooms for a nice nap

    I vory tablecloth stained from dinner

    N ight time comes, time for a day of shopping

    G uys in the kitchen cleaning dishes
