If it’s worth a thousand words, prove it!


Flickr is a fascinating site which showcases extensive creativity and talent. If you need inspiration and love photography, check out Flickr’s explore option or Google image search works just as well.

Find a picture you connect with and feel you can write about. Choose a format (script, poetry, short story, etc.), and off you go!

Writer’s block already? Things to ponder when analyzing your picture of choice and brainstorming…

  1. What is the conflict?
  2. Are there contrasting elements? What does this contrast reveal?
  3. What can you compare? Use figurative language like a simile or metaphor.
  4. What other perspectives could you play with? Choose a different angle than most writer’s would. How can you utilize personification?
