More Sunday #writing humor, this time from Get Fuzzy by Darby Conley. There are harsh critics out there.
Visual Writing Prompt 68 Well, we are in Paris. How could we not show a picture of the Eiffel Tower when so many prompts have been in France? Rising like a golden spike out of the earth, this iconic structure has been used to symbolize the romantic, the exotic, and the adventurous. Writing some flash fiction set around the Eiffel Tower, but make it difficult…no “conventional” romance. Make it off beat.
FYI: At least I knew what this was called.
Visual Writing Prompt 58 The Fountain. We’re pulled to fountains in a way similar to the way we’re pulled to campfires…except that we’re more inclined to jump into a fountain. The point is, we’re drawn to them…they evoke memories, almost always good it seems. Write about a character’s ruminating by a fountain. Are the thoughts or memories positive or fearful?
Visual Writing Prompt 54 Liquid Art. It’s fascinating the different mediums that are used for artistic expression. Here one form of artistry – a photograph – tries to capture dynamic art – these crossing arches of water. Write a story or poem about an artist or a unique form of art.
Visual Writing Prompt 53 Lost in the woods. Being lost on the wrong road or trail is bad enough, but when you’re lost and you have no trail at all…that’s even worse. Where do you go when there is nowhere (obvious) to travel to? And how did you get there to begin with? Write a short story, flash fiction, or poem on being completely lost.
Visual Writing Prompt 48 Dark Clouds Gathering. Storms are approaching, harbingers of danger and mystery. Write a mysterious flash fiction piece, or a poem, that speaks to the gathering gloom.
Visual Writing Prompt 47 Following the Black Swan. In this case, a real black swan and not the movie. A young swan follows its mother, and although she will venture away from time to time, she rushes back for protection if startled. Write a story or poem about following in the footsteps, willingly or not, of a parent. The characters need not be human.
