Weekend Writing Prompt – Misanthrope

Published August 9, 2020 by rochellewisoff

A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend.  How you use the prompt is up to you.  Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like.  Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.  If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in Sammi’s comment section.

I’m out of my comfort zone this week, sightseeing, swimming in the ocean and enjoying some sibling revelry with my brother Jeffrey Wisoff. 😀


Me? Antisocial? Surely you jest.  I interact with people all day long—online. Okay. I’m a little reclusive, perhaps. A cockeyed introvert, for certain. But a misanthrope?  Nay I say. I’m merely comfortable with my own company.

Swimming laps gives me immeasurable pleasure. Water, as opposed to nattering human voices, whispers serenity to my soul.

Granted, I enjoy an occasional day out with the girls. Human contact is essential—in limited installments.  Nothing pleases me more, after a day of shopping, than to sequester with my paintbrush

My office –slash-studio is my happy place where I control my reality.

  • Greeting multi-talented Rochelle,

    My definition of introvert has to do with where I derive my energy (alone). I like people (most), but recharging is a must.

    They’ve reopened our pool, so again I’m getting my wet-aerobics 3x a week. The rules are simple and written in many places. Bottom line, ‘thou shall not infect or upset your neighbor.’

    Do you ever want to reach out hold someone underwater? Alas, a deep sigh and face-palm is all I’m permitted.

    Peace (please),
