Today the writing prompt is an image. I may have used this one before, but it’s okay, because it’s a great one.
The artist is Daniel Maidman and I originally found the image on Pinterest.
When I came across it again today I discovered that it originally came from Paper Images.
I love the image – there is something about it that makes me ask questions about whomever those hands belong to.
There you have it – you might write your own questions about the hands, or create the character they belong to, or create a story about the artist, or. . .
It is the time of year for graduations, making me think about transitions and change. While that subject alone might be enough of a prompt, I was feeling the need for something musical as well on this rainy morning. So, I’ve included the youtube video of a number of ‘graduation’ songs for your listening pleasure.
Feel free to go with any of these prompts to get you started writing about graduation (yours or others), transitions, change, hope, the future. . .
Today’s prompt is a celebration of the sounds of springtime in Vermont.
This recording comes from talented author and good friend, Tanya Sousa.
Listen and write. I hope that many sweet thoughts of nature, your connection with nature, visions of nature. . . all come together for some beautiful writing.
Perhaps it will inspire a haiku, a memory, a new story. Enjoy!
