1. It's the first warm, pleasant day of the Spring season. What kind of activities do you do outside to embrace the day?

2. It's April and you know what the means: April Showers. Big time! Talk about living through a month of nearly all Spring-time rain.

3. You go on a nature walk date with your significant other. Your partner is an extreme flower lover and goes into all the details of every plant you stumble upon. What is your reaction?

4. Spring cleaning! Create a story in which you have to get rid of a lot of prized memorabilia from your past.

5. You are in a meadow that truly shows the beauty of Spring. There is green everywhere punctuated by other bright colors. You close your eyes and breathe in. What is going through your mind?

Personally, I'm trying to put thoughts of Spring training off to the side as my Phillies are trying to come back from a deficit in the World Series, but anyway...I hope you enjoyed these free creative writing prompts about Spring. I have had countless important events happen to me in Spring and it's fantastic to be able to go down memory lane and put them down on paper. Maybe some of you guys n' gals will have the same experience. Happy writing!
