The Write Spark #10: 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!

  1. Thank you. This inspired me to find a way to upload ‘To be so Loved’~Serial #15 to my blog. I’ve been fighting inet issues all week. So, if you’re so inclined and would like a good read this weekend… https://jellicostation84.wordpress.com/2017/02/10/to-be-so-lovedserial-15/

  2. She stares at this thing, day after day, and pays me no mind. What is it about this thing that warrants more of her attention than me? I am Kitty. Does she not hear me roar? Does she not care? I don’t see what the hoopla is with this thing anyway. It doesn’t do anything; just sits here. Maybe there’s something I can do to it so she won’t want to stare at it anymore.

  3. She’s got the same bug as all the rest of us internet users. Once you find what you like you never go back to the same ole ho hum drum anymore. I actually think she’s reading the blog I just posted. Whenever I’m in the zone of writing that special piece, she’s there to help me finish it; edging me on with her purrs. Yes, just the inspiration I need to finish my writing. Good job Sugar!
