Writing Prompt

"I spent the day giving birth to little words with loud cries."

Every Wednesday I post a new writing prompt and everyone is welcome to post their interpretation of it in the comments (or if you post on a blog you can send me the link). I'd love your feedback on what I write and can't wait to see what you write! And always feel free to post in the comments of any past prompts too!
