Photo prompt: Real Life

Writing prompt: Renovation. Change. Real life is full of changes, some by our own doing, some not. Put your main character in a situation where a change is about to occur. It’s not a welcomed change, and your main character attempts to evade/avoid the change three times before finally surrendering. Can you make it funny?  Go. Write. Have fun.

Photo Challenge / Writing Prompt #20

These sibling babies trusted us enough to nap at our doorstep. It was a warm, sunny spot on a mid-September afternoon. Baby squirrels are friendly and curious at this age, but within a few weeks, these two grew to be cautious of the humans who shared their half acre.

Photo prompt: Two

Writing prompt: Think about a time when you were young and trusting, when you could nod off without a worry of danger. Or a time when you were totally at ease with someone – someone you could nap with under the stippled shade of a tree. Go. Write. Have fun.

Photo prompt: Sweet Delights

Writing prompt: Look at this sweet bunny. It doesn’t quite look real, does it? It looks like a fabulous illustrator added it to the photo. Sometimes what looks sweet isn’t. Sometimes sweet goes sour. Sometimes sweet is really sinister. Go. Write. Have fun.

Photo prompt: Looking Up

Writing prompt: I see Papa Bear with a bowl of porridge. What do you see? Go outside on a cloudy day. Look up. Make a list of the things you see in the clouds. Dragons, alligators, the Stay-Puft Man. A lamp post, an ear of corn, a horse-drawn canoe. Use one or more of the things on your list in a story for kids. Go. Write. Have fun.

Leave it to me to turn today’s word – reading – into writing. My photo below is all about writing. It’s a book I created in cahoots with women in my writing group. We had spent a morning writing in an art gallery where one woman from our group, Lucy Mueller Young, was exhibiting her paintings and sculptures. This book includes the rough drafts of what we had written at the gallery, along with photos of the work Lucy had exhibited. The book, created as a keepsake of that morning, was given to Lucy before she moved to Vermont.

Photo prompt: Reading

Writing prompt: What does reading turn into for you? The reading of a will might turn you from pauper to tax-bracket hopper. Reading an obit? Or a David Mamet play? Or a funny picture book to a giggly child? Think about the reading experiences you’ve had and how it changed you (for the moment or forever). Pick one and let your main character go there. Or write a poem about the experience. Go. Write. Have fun.

Writing prompt: This sign was in an antique barn in Vermont. Ever go antiquing? Do you remember the smell of old goods gathered? Can you smell the smoke of this cigar? Go ahead. Light it up. What fire does this photo light for you? Write about it, but be sure to include the scent of smell. Go. Write. Have fun.

Photo Challenge / Writing Prompt #15

Yes. We visited the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts, and I was captivated by the art of the building itself. Of course I took photos of some beautiful, intriguing, inspiring works of art. Van Gogh, Monet, Toulouse-Lautrec, Sargeant… But I love architecture. And I appreciated the beauty of the building that held such beauty.

Photo prompt: Art

Writing prompt: Write about beauty. About finding art in a leaf or piece of lumber, in a lamp finial or the face of a clock, in a field of rye or a mountain range. Write about the beauty of the scent of a newborn baby, the skin of a woman of a certain age, or the calluses of a young construction worker.  Where do you find art? Go. Write. Have fun.
