2012 Summer Writing Prompt #6: Your Mountain is Waiting

I just spent a week in the mountains and was awed (as always) at the beauty and majesty and pure awesomeness of a mountain.   Read these quotes, look at the pictures, and WRITE.

Here are a few ideas:

  • What would you do if you were left alone on a mountain for a week?
  • What mountains are waiting for you or what mountains have you already climbed in your life?  How will or did  you conquer them?
  • Have you ever hiked a mountain?  Describe your experience.
  • Write a list of adjectives describing what you see in this picture.  How many words can you come up with?
  • What does the following phrase from the last quote mean to you?  "...all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing"

"Today is your day.  Your mountain is waiting . . . so get on your way." 
--Dr. Seuss

 "It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves."  
-- Edmund Hillary
 "I've learned that everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it."
