The Olympics {Weekly Writing Prompt}

 Welcome to Voices: Write to be Heard weekly writing prompt!  After you have written a post or article inspired by our writing prompt, link up so we can all read each other’s work.  Remember, even if you aren’t a blogger, writing prompts are great practice, or start a blog so you can link up with us! 
Happy Writing,
The Olympics are pretty inspiring, aren't they?  I always feel my heart swell with pride when I hear the national anthem played.  The amount of training and sacrifice by the athletes is mind blowing. 
Writing prompts are like training for us as writers.  They should stretch you and expand you.  If an Olympian only ran or swam or jumped at the level they were comfortable with, they would never improve.  They same is true with writing.  If you only write what comes easy, your writing will never improve.
This week take some inspiration from the Olympic Games.  What is your favorite sport to watch?  How does watching the games make you feel?  In what sport do you wish you could take home the gold?   Or, do you even care about who wins a medal and who doesn’t?

Thank you for the picture.
