My writing mentor loved to give our class prompts. She loved 'painting stories' with images...using the most haunting, sometimes disturbing images to awaken our muses. Oftentimes, it worked. Sometimes not, but these small exercises of inspiration never failed to at least get me thinking.
So, I'm going to start a new "feature" as it were, in an effort to help you (and myself) spark the muse. I'll share a picture with you, one that I hope you find inspiring, in an effort to get those creative juices flowing. You're more than welcome to share with me a snippet or even small glimpse of what you come up with and I'll be sure to do the same.
From the below picture I've gotten this so far:
I watched the world end near the gates of Serenity Park.
