WRITING PROMPT USING PICTURES FOR INSPIRATION
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…
- What is the conflict?
- Are there contrasting elements? What does this contrast reveal?
- What can you compare? Use figurative language like a simile or metaphor.
- What other perspectives could you play with? Choose a different angle than most writer’s would. How can you utilize personification?
