Write About It Wednesday: Spring Cleaning

Hello, and Happy Wednesday, friends! (Yes, it’s Wednesday for those of you who have lost track.)

With so much spare time on my hands, I’ve been doing a lot of cleaning, rearranging furniture, and organizing. I guess it’s right on time for Spring Cleaning this year. But, I don’t do it first thing in the morning like maybe a “normal” person would. No, I am a night owl, so ten o’clock at night rolls around and I think, “Hm… right now seems like a perfectly good and reasonable time to start organizing my closet.” (Which is a true story. I really did that.) It ended up working out well though, because while everyone else headed off to their rooms to go to bed, I took all the clothes and shoes out of my closet and spread them all over the living room so I could deep clean and reorganize my closet.

I joked on my private Facebook the other day that this sudden cleaning kick has me feeling and acting like  a mom who just found out that company is coming.


If you haven’t guessed by now, this sudden cleaning frenzy is the inspiration behind today’s prompt: Spring Cleaning.

Write About:

  1. Write about a neat-freak character who goes overboard with Spring Cleaning.
  2. Write about witches/wizards/sorcerers/pagan culture performing a cleaning ritual.
  3. Write about your own Spring Cleaning experience.
  4. Write about a Cinderella/maid type character’s day-to-day life.
  5. Write a funny Quarantine Ad for a cleaning product. (real or imaginary product.)
