- Use photos as writing prompts.
Pick a photo, any photo. Write.
Is there a story behind it? Of course there is. Even if there isn’t, it’s your task to create one.
It could be anything–in fact, anything is perfect. Maybe even something you don’t recognize or know much about. I found this photo of this … what is it anyway? A birdhouse? Maybe something to put a candle in? Who knows. But it has to have some history to it, right? Even if it doesn’t, we’ll create one.
It doesn’t need to start a novel but it’s probably more than a single line. What’s behind this birdhouse or candle house?
