Writers' Ink at Caledon Public Library

Alton May Meeting Prompt

‘Midnight and You’re Awake’

Tap into your creativity by writing a poem, story, essay, specific incident about a time you were awake in the middle of the night – what you discovered about the world when everyone was sleeping or what you learned about yourself.

You might imagine being awake at 1 a.m. and hearing a raccoon on your porch, or pretend you’re looking out your window into the house/apartment building across the way and seeing something unexpected. Thoughts in the night, like dreams, come to offer us strange new experiences, or to remind us of those we thought we’d forgotten. They can be understood in the parts of our brain that appreciate sounds, or smell, or the experience of awakening and feeling unaccountably anxious.

What’s going on when others are asleep? Write what will captivate the reader with what he or she is missing while deep in slumber.
