You know the drill - choose one of the pictures and write about it. Probably best to make some notes on what you see in the picture - that makes you really look at it. Then think about what the person/people are thinking and feeling: what led up to the situation in the picture, what might follow? Or the one with the window might inspire you to remember a holiday - always good at the moment to take us somewhere else for a while!
What's it about?
This blog has a very specific purpose: it's a place to post prompts for creative writing during the time of the lockdown. Initially it was for the use of my writing group, as we cannot for the time being meet in person - but I want to open it up to anyone who'd like to have a go at creative writing. I very strongly believe that writing is good for you: while you're writing, you're off somewhere else - you've escaped! And that can only be a good thing during lockdown.
Do sign up to be notified by email when a new prompt is posted - usually on Thursdays - and I would love to hear how you're getting on in the comments. Have fun!
