Write Spark

The Write Spark #9: What story can you tell?

Today is the day and now is the time to challenge your writing. I often hear of writers who complain of being stuck or not knowing how to start writing. Well, here’s a challenge for you to get those words moving across the page. Let’s see what sparks for you. Who knows, you may very well have the opening lines to your next story or that scene you can’t seem to get going.

Looking at the picture above, what do you see? In the comments, write a brief paragraph, a few sentences, or just freestyle your thoughts. Write what this picture says to you. How does it make you feel? What thoughts does it evoke? You can write from your character’s state of mind. It could be a scene. Don’t restrict yourself. Just write what comes to mind. Remember, life is full of illusions; what you see is not often reality.

Challenge yourself, but most of all, have fun!

  1. It’s been a long time since I rode a bicycle, but looking at all of those in the picture, I feel like going for a spin. And after a few times around seeing all the sites, I’ll come back and take a nap under the shaded trees. Sounds good to me.

    1. It had been years since I rode a bike when I hopped on one in 2012. What an experience it was. At first I was nervous and wobbled. After a few peddles, it was a different story. Riding with the wind blowing against my skin made me feel liberated. Now I ask myself, “Why haven’t you ridden a bike since?” Hmmm.
