The Write Spark #7: What story can you tell?

Today is the day and now is the time to challenge your writing. I often hear of writers who complain of being stuck or not knowing how to start writing. Well, here’s a challenge for you to get those words moving across the page. Let’s see what sparks for you. Who knows, you may very well have the opening lines to your next story or that scene you can’t seem to get going.


Looking at the picture above, what do you see? In the comments, write a brief paragraph, a few sentences, or just freestyle your thoughts. Write what this picture says to you. How does it make you feel? What thoughts does it evoke? You can write from your character’s state of mind. It could be a scene. Don’t restrict yourself. Just write what comes to mind. Remember, life is full of illusions; what you see is not often reality.

Challenge yourself, but most of all, have fun!

  • I see the sparkle of life and light traveling up the trees from the root. To see it makes my insides light up with such brightness. It feels warm and tingly; even festive. Just suppose this light continued to travel upward and fill the tree and, keep going and going and going. Where would it end up, and what would it then look like? This would be a lit up place, to say the least. It all begins in the mind. Let the lights travel on.
