Ah, you know me. Whatever grabs my attention becomes the week’s Writing Prompt. This week I was intrigued by the idea of hands, and all they are capable of.
Hands can bring comfort and pleasure. They reach out in desperation or to protect. They can inflict harm and reveal menace. We can convey a number of wordless meanings with them, or use them to emphasize that which is being said. We use them for everything.
So are you up for using them as part of this week’s Writing Prompt Challenge? I hope this offers you a little inspiration for a free write, a bit of flash fiction, or maybe an opportunity to add to your own work.
In the free photo gallery available via WordPress, the search bar already comes with a suggested term and subsequent photos to give you an idea of the variety of images available. “Patterns” was the suggested term – that’s a bit on the nose, Universe, but I hear you – and this breathtaking image was among them.
If you need a break from your own writing and are looking for a bit of inspiration for a free write or some flash fiction, I hope this imagery brings about a spark of creativity.
Wednesday is Writing Prompt Day! So how is it I haven’t shared one since mid-November…? I know I was personally struggling to find time to dedicate to them, I’m still on my (original stories) writing kick, but considering they’re something I enjoy seeking out, all I can say is, “Eek!”
So let’s start this new year off with a bit of light hearted, or maybe not, writing fun.
As is the norm, I chose the first image that struck me, and I am surprised to say, I had a curious stirring of the imagination towards a story idea. I wrote down the line that came to me, and I’ll revisit it to see what sort of foundation it may form. I don’t know just yet if it’s going to be part of the WP challenge or if it’s a full blown screenplay. Either way, color me intrigued.
What about you? Are you feeling the tickle of inspiration?
I hope you’ll join me in this week’s challenge. If you find yourself inspired by any of the writing prompts I’ve posted, please don’t forget to share! I can’t wait to see what you all create!
I’ve been considering, for a while now, the idea of renewing my scuba certification in an effort to aid in the oceanic cleanup projects happening. I love the water, always have, and realized that this is something more I can do for the environment. So when I saw this image of an underwater forest, it reaffirmed that idea (because how awesome would swimming through a forest be?), and became the inspiration for this week’s Writing Prompt.
Does this give you fantasy or apocalypse vibes? Maybe a little bit of both? What story idea does it inspire in you?
The weeks leading up to Halloween, I shared a few “darker” themed prompts, and I was drawn that way again for this week’s challenge, I don’t know why, but then I saw this:
I’m about two-thirds finished with the big rewrite on my TV pilot script which is about two sisters abducted by aliens, so when I saw this image, it made me giggle, and that changed my idea for today’s prompt.
Eventually I’ll be able to return to participating in the Writing Prompt Challenges, so in the meantime, I hope you’ll do it for me. 😉
When I originally saved this image, I was intrigued by the shape of the light posts and the eerie nature of the scene, and then I looked closer. This is definitely writing prompt worthy material.
What do yo think? Feeling inspired?
I thought when I finished the third act of my screenplay I would take a little time to explore some of the prompts I’ve shared, but I’ve had an idea how to rewrite another, so I’m going to run with it. I suppose in the mean time, you’ll have to keep me occupied with your imaginings. 😉
