Writing Prompt: What comes to mind when you think of the Dog Days? Is it the overwhelming, sticky heat or is it your canine, frolicking in the lake. Make a list of 5 things that pop into your head. Pick one and add a sensory detail to it (smell, taste, sound, touch). Then write a story, poem, or scene about that special occasion, including the sensory detail. Write for 10 minutes, then post your write in the comments of this blog!
For example, I’m going to write about one summer, when I lived in Chicago without AC. The heat was over 90 at midnight, with so much humidity that old folks were dying.  What are you going to write about?
