As you are probably aware by now, I am wildly fond of imagery. It may be why I’m a screenwriter in particular, it’s all about the visual. I wanted to share the images I had been collecting all these years in the hopes they might inspire a fellow writer. I, myself, had thought little of writing anything from the prompts, but once I did, I found myself enjoying the escape.
As I’ve been struggling with a rewrite, continuing to say I’m a writer when I don’t write anything else was growing tiresome to my own ears. So I decided to take on the challenge I was hoping others would partake in and started writing flash fiction pieces; under 200 words, with little forethought or editing. Just quick and dirty. For my new friends, you can find those I’ve written so far under the Excerpts section under Writing Prompts. And if you’re inspired by any of the images, please create and share!
I have continued onto a new chapter in Dragon Age fanfic, and I just added my spec script for the tv series Alias. You can click here to read it if you’re interested, or find it under the Excerpts section as well. I was encouraged by a fellow writer and Alias fan to share it, and I was always rather proud of the story. It was written when the show was still on the air as a spec.
That’s a little update and now it’s on to this week’s Writing Prompt…I purchased a postcard of this artwork from a museum when I traveled through Europe in my younger days. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the one to share this week. It may be in part because I’m trying to get into a romantic frame of mind to finish that rewrite. 😉
I look forward to reading the stories your wonderful minds might create!
