Writing Prompt #6

September is nearly over, autumn is in full swing, and let’s not forget November is only a month away–you know what that means. NaNoWriMo is coming!! Yes, it’s still ages away, but the time will pass before we know it, so why not start limbering up with writing prompts?! Or, if you’re just here to join in and have fun, that works too!

Today’s game: Double Up

Fusion of Snap Shot and Fire Starter!! Use both the sentence and the image to spark an idea for a flash piece.

The rules: Write the supplied sentence/sentence fragment at the top of your page, (computer, notebook, etc. Whatever you prefer) now stare at the picture. What does it make you think of? What story is it telling? Okay–thought of something? Good. Now set a timer to 10 minutes and start writing whatever you think would follow the sentence and fit the picture! Ready, set, go!

The Sentence:

Dark splotches everywhere.

The Image (Creative Commons photo from Pixabay–you can use it too!):

Writing Prompt #6 -1 image. 1 sentence "Dark splotches everywhere". 10 minutes to write. https://sonorahillsauthor.com/

After you try this out, you can find what I wrote by clicking here (because comparing everyone’s different ideas is the best bit!). I fixed some of the punctuation and spelling to make it easier to read, but this is about fun, not editing.

You can read another take on the prompt, written by my boyfriend, here!

If you’re really feeling brave, you can post what you’ve written in the comments because, as with all writing games, comparing our unique takes on the picture is the best part.

Have fun!
