When I let the dog out this morning, the air had the audacity to be cold despite the sunshine. After a summer devoid of writing prompts (sorry about that), I figure it’s time to start again. Autumn may traditionally be the season of endings–bye, bye leaves–but for me it’s always felt like a beginning. I pull myself out of summer’s lazy rut and begin again. It’s a chance for reform.
What better way to reform than to start writing again?
Today’s writing game: Snap Shot
The rules: 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 that story. Ready, set, go!
I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did! If you’d like to compare story weirdness, here is what I came up with. I arguably enjoy the sharing part of this game even more than the writing itself.
You don’t have to, but if you want to share what you wrote, feel free to comment it. I absolutely LOVE reading it.
Most importantly, have fun!
