Lighthouse Story - Create a Lighthouse

Lighthouses create an interesting backdrop for a variety of story types. A lighthouse story can fall anywhere from inspirational, to historical, to horror. For today's writing prompt you'll need to practice your research skills. The challenge is to create a lighthouse. Elements to include:

  • Type of structure: tower, building, or other
  • Setting: Needless to see the lighthouse will be near the water, but what does the setting look like? Smell like? Feel like?
  • For this prompt either focus on the lighthouse itself inside and out, or focus on the outdoor setting to create interest in the lighthouse. 

The goal of this prompt to to evoke a feeling by using strong verbs and visuals.
