Welcome to Discover Prompts! Throughout April, we’re sharing a daily prompt to help you keep or regain your writing rhythm. Not sure how to participate? Read on.


A street can be many things: leafy, bustling, hidden, cobblestoned, winding. Which one will you write about today?

Ready to roll? All you need to do is…

  • Write a new post on your site in response to the prompt.
  • Tag your post with Discover Prompts and click Publish.
  • Head to the Reader to engage with other participants’ posts.

Need more ideas? Not sure what to write around Street?

  • Describe the street you live on today as if it were a person.
  • If your community has been under a form of lockdown in recent weeks, write about the thing you miss the most about the streets in your neighborhood.
  • If your window overlooks a street, snap a photo of it, and post it. (Optional: add a poem to accompany the image.)
  • From memory, describe in as much detail as possible the street you grew up on (or any other street that played an outsized role in your life).
  • You have the magical power to combine three streets from anywhere in the world into one perfect street. Which three would you choose, and why?
